We teach a survival-based swim skill program. Our swimmers learn to flip, float and follow first, so they are able to flip over onto their backs to float and breathe, then follow the path to safety. After mastering these skills, we continue to develop our swimmers, building endurance and functional swim skills as well as stroke technique.
At what age can my swimmer start lessons?
We teach swimmers as young as 4 months. Our goal is to provide life saving swim skills for swimmers of all ages and abilities

For our adult swimmers, we recommend a minimum of a 30 minute lesson to be booked once or twice per week
What is needed for lessons?
