Hi We've got a 7-year-old that's a fish but could use some lessons to learn some new strokes and just sort of strengthen and smooth out what she does in the water now. We're closest to the YWCA and the Marion Diehl pool so we're thinking about them, but we have friends that used the JCC and liked it, so we'd consider that too. Any thoughts? A bit down the line we're also thinking about a low-key swim team for our daughter if such a thing exists. Anyway, any input is appreciated.
Thanks-
Chris

I don't think my son is at the same level as your child, but he's taking lessons at Charlotte Swim Academy, and we're very happy. It's not as flashy as Little Otter, but I prefer private classes over group ones for him.

I love the swim coaches over at the Morrison YMCA. They also have a swim team over the Summer. They are supposed to build a Natatorium but hadn't yet last I checked. Siskey YMCA does have one and they do offer lessons as well. But I personally don't know of their coaches but since it's a popular pool, I am sure they are good as well.

My daughter learned to swim at a Y in Chicago and had a blast doing it. She continued age-group through high school. You should go where your child feels comfortable. Charlotte Aquatics has an excellent competitive swim program as does Rowan Aquatics in Salisbury.

Thanks for the responses. Morrison and Siskey, unfortunately, are probably a little far for us. We're looking into the other suggestions. Thanks again.

We also take our 3 year old to Charlotte Swim Academy. She has been taking lessons there since she was 18 months old, and has really enjoyed the teachers there!

We go to Little Otters in Matthews. they're building another location near Huntersville. Classes go year-round for all different ages and skill levels.

Thanks for the replies. We've decided to go with the JCC this time. The time, and length, of the lessons works best for us. And we have friends who've liked it there. Good luck to all your little fish and thanks again.
