Welcome to British Swim School
at LA Fitness - Rock Hill

Offering you easy access, centrally located to the surrounding Rock Hill/Ft. Mill/York area at the pool at the LA Fitness at 745 Arden Lane in Rock Hill, SC just 3 miles from Exit 82 off Route 77 right off of India Hook Rd.

We offer a variety of small group classes to suit the littlest of beginners to advanced swimmers and adults. Classes with ages ranging from 3 months through Adults will be hosted here! You DO NOT need to be an LA Fitness member to register for British Swim School classes. Note: Registering for British Swim School lessons DOES NOT constitute membership or access to other LA Fitness facilities or activities including weights, Fitness classes, or the Kids Club, etc.

Our unique program is taught year-round inside at this climate-controlled heated pool. This facility features on-deck changing, seating, & nearby restrooms plus you will work with the area’s best instructors. With ample free parking, this pool is the perfect destination for your little one or family to learn to swim with us.

What’s so special about British Swim School? Here’s what we do differently:

  • British Swim School Water-Safety Lessons work for students of ANY AGE and we start as early as 3 months, and also teach adults.
  • We teach WITHOUT FLOATIES, because they give children a false sense of safety and do not prepare them for real-life emergencies. We only use them for playtime, never for skill development.
  • No one has more expertise. Our lessons are based on 40 YEARS OF TEACHING EXPERIENCE. We have taught hundreds of thousands of students; we currently teach 17,000 lessons per week nationally. Every child is different, and our program is purposely designed to help any student no matter the age or ability (including special abilities).
  • We are the only school who teaches children in their STREET-CLOTHES during our Survival Week several times per year, because real-life accidents happen fully clothed, and a child needs to know how this extra weight feels.
  • British Swim School instructors are amazingly FRIENDLY and have been HIGHLY TRAINED in how to teach children survival and swimming skills.
  • British Swim School lessons are GOAL-ORIENTED to accomplish the fastest progress for any student. Master your 5 goals, and you will graduate to the next level regardless of age or # of lessons taken.
  • British Swim School lessons are held year-round ongoing and NOT IN SESSIONS, because CONSISTENCY is key in learning a new skill. You can start any time.
  • Students learn better in SMALL GROUPS, that’s why British Swim School’s water survival classes are 4:1 max.
  • FUN!! We focus on teaching these critical survival skills while having fun creating lasting memories!

  • All automatic debits will be charged automatically on the 24th of each month for the upcoming month’s lessons.

  • You will not be charged for any national & religious holidays when the British Swim School is closed and make-ups will not be scheduled for these days.
  • You will be assessed a $10.00 handling charge on a declined Automatic Debit transaction. Please inform us of any credit / debit card changes before your billing date. You can update card or billing info using your account portal.

Withdrawal from the program:

Please provide us 30 days written notice when you plan to withdraw from or pause lessons, so we have time to backfill the class spot that we have been reserving for you. This is required via email for tracking purposes so we can respond with a confirmation.


Example: Notice of withdrawal given on August 15th will result in a final class date of September 15th. You will be responsible for payment for the unpaid classes that cover the 30-day withdrawal period.
Withdrawal notices submitted after the upcoming month’s billing date (typically the 24th of the month) has taken place will not result in a refund.
  • No Refunds as class spots have been reserved for you regardless of attendance

Fee Details:

  • We do not use fixed sessions, so you can start your enrollment at any time to fit your schedule. Students can move up to the next level as soon as they are ready by demonstrating the 5 skills required at their current level.
  • All classes are 30 minutes long. Double sessions can be booked if an hour class is preferred.
  • All survival classes are conducted in small groups (4:1 student/instructor ratio max, Tadpole/Swimboree and Stroke Development classes 6:1 student/instructor ratio max).
  • All Adult Classes are semi-private 2:1 student/instructor ratio
  • Private lessons are available upon request and subject to availability. Please call our office for more information.
  • All programs are non-transferable and we require 30 days advance written notice to withdraw from any class.


  • We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. Your card will be automatically debited after the 20th of every month for the following month’s lessons. Please provide withdrawal notice before this.
  • When you initially enroll, your first month’s tuition will be pro-rated based on the number of classes you will receive that month. If you enroll on the 15th of the month or later, you will automatically be registered for the following month as well. Early withdrawals must be mentioned at registration or 30 Days in advance of the withdrawal.
  • Annual Family Registration Fee: $35


  • Make-ups are offered as a courtesy and are not guaranteed so please make every effort to attend your normally scheduled class.
    • They are dependent on class availability (other student’s absences) and can be done at any of our Metro Charlotte locations.
    • Private lessons are not guaranteed private make-ups.
  • If you must miss a lesson, please enter your absence into your account portal BEFORE the missed class time starts so it’s ELIGIBLE for a makeup. Failure to inform us in advance of the class starting forfeits the ability to do a makeup as we will be holding your spot in the class as scheduled. No need to call, please enter it into your account portal.
  • A make-up lesson will be available for any ELIGIBLE absence and can be scheduled one week in advance.
  • Make-ups will expire after 30 days of the absence if not rescheduled.
    • Make-ups due to BSS pool closures/class cancelations will not expire.
  • They are limited to students who are actively enrolled(paid customer for the month) in our swim lessons at the time of the make-up.
    • Make-ups must be completed before the last day of your final month of paid lessons and cannot be used to extend lessons into an unpaid month.
  • Make-ups may not be rescheduled (2nd time)
  • The Make-up system only works if students enter their absences in advance so your absence can be used for someone else’s make-up class. You will likely be using someone else’s absence for your make-up classes.
  • Please make every effort to manage your absences and make-ups using your account portal (link was in your original confirmation email). This will help us prevent price increases, so we don’t need to hire staff just to manage these administrative tasks.
