Rob Knight's Swim America


Rob Knight's Swim America (RKSA) founded in 1992, teaches all ability levels from Baby Seals through Adult -  Swim America puts safety first with lessons designed to teach all the skills your child needs to be safe in and around the water for a lifetime. Step 1 is passing the swim test (unless you are in Baby Seals) to be sure you are comfortable with your face FULLY submerged. See the swim test video under 'Getting Started' on our website. Once swimmers can hold their breath, they'll move onto front and back float; and then kicking on their front and back.

Swim America offers a Sticker #1-10 Progression method with Gold Stickers for their chart upon completion of the required skills.  This is for Group Lessons (not Baby Seals) 

Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly.  After the four competitive strokes are mastered, our swim school will focus on Lifetime Strokes which are A) side stroke and B) elementary backstroke.

Finally - the ability to swim a minimum of 300 yards freestyle.

You are then a SAFE swimmer which is the goal of our program!
