Register for Swim Lessons at Atholton Swim Club!

Atholton Swim Club has been providing fun and effective swim lessons using the American Red Cross’s Learn-to-Swim curriculum in the Columbia community for nearly 60 years!

We offer private, semi-private, and youth group lessons. Youth group lessons consist of small class sizes of up to 5 swimmers per instructor. In order to participate, children must be able to comfortably stand in the 3′ shallow end (typically 42" tall / 5 years old).

Group lessons will begin Monday June 19, 2023 and continue throughout the summer.
