Water Safety is Our Top Priority

Our Philosophy: The health and safety of our participants (including our instructors) is our top priority! Our small class size ensures safety and very personal attention. Our instructors challenge the children in a way that they enjoy learning. The Newtown Athletic Club will always strive to be unmatched in the flexibility of scheduling and ease of registration. From the family locker room to the warm water pool, our facilities will evolve in order to continue leading the field of swim instruction.

ISR Swim Lessons

The NAC is proud to be partnering with Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) to offer ISR lessons at the indoor pool! ISR is for infants and children 6 months-6 years & is the product of over 50 years of on-going development in the area of aquatic survival.

  • Next ISR swim session date: January 2020 (stay tuned!)

ISR’s primary focus is to teach your child to become a productive swimmer, or floater, in any depth of water. ISR will greatly increase your child’s chance of surviving an aquatic accident, even fully clothed!
