Lessons: What we teach

Swimming properly is based on the four foundations of swimming, which are: Breathing, kicking, pulling water, and the timed coordination of these skills. These are taught so that a swimmer can properly support their body in the water, especially in emergency situations. Often if a student is taught incorrectly, this will lead to “thrashing,” which in most situations will not help the swimmer.

We focus on building skills and endurance.

Our instructors are friendly, enthusiastic teachers with extensive swim backgrounds.
