About Us



The Cypress-Fairbanks Swim Club (FLEET Swimming) was founded in 1975. During the next two decades, it became quite obvious that there was a strong need for us at FLEET to not only prepare swimmers for the competitive team but also to reach out to the community, promote water safety, and teach children a crucial skill - how to swim. Thus, the FLEET First Swim School was created in 1999.

FLEET First Swim School is the only provider of the SwimAmerica™ program in the Northwest Houston area. SwimAmerica™ is a national learn-to-swim program operated by the American Swimming Coaches Association. It is managed by over 500 Program Directors at over 900 sites across the USA. SwimAmerica™ is the state-of-the-art swimming program of the nation today. Its curriculum has been developed by the committee of the American Swimming Coaches Association to provide the finest learn-to-swim progression possible.

The FLEET First SwimAmerica™ coaching staff has been professionally prepared to offer your child the very latest in swim instruction. The curriculum we follow is goal-driven and technique-oriented. The SwimAmerica™ program is operated by using ten stations, or levels. Swimmers will move to the higher skill levels as they achieve the advancement goals of their present station.

Because SwimAmerica™ is so goal-driven, we have been able to specify skills that must be mastered before progressing to the next difficulty or level of swimming. We will reward the swimmer at every phase of their progression and build their confidence as they are learning to swim.

By being technique-oriented, we are bringing more emphasis to teaching proper stroke mechanics from the very beginning. Our coaches will affirm correct swimming technique from the first lesson on.

We at FLEET First love what we do, and are proud to bear SwimAmerica™'s name. Our swim school produces fine swimmers who are ready for competitive swim, or who are just prepared to be in water, wherever they may be.
