Our Approach: Quality Instruction Responsible Teaching:
Our approach to teaching swimming skills was developed in a gentle way to help the beginner and those afraid of the water to overcome their fear of the water and become a competent swimmer.
Being able to swim and master the water is essential to the human spirit enabling the individual to gain a new sense of freedom. Not only does the individual gain a new sense of freedom, swimming gives you an improved physical sense of well-being and better life experience.
We are highly touted as being number one in “Overcoming Fear of Water” and beginner swim classes. We also offer stroke improvement classes and efficient fitness and exercise swimming.
