Swim Lessons



                                        One-On-One Coaching for Athletes of all Ages & Abilities 


Individual/Small Group Swim Coaching

Because of the flexibility, affordability and effectiveness, our lesson program has become extremely popular in the Brecksville-Broadview Heights community.  In addition, swim lesson participants are welcome to swim in our Cyclone home meets!  Our USA Coaches and College/High School instructors are not only incredibly talented, they are extremely passionate about sharing their knowledge and love for swimming.   If you haven't done so already, call Tyler Thompson (440-476-5106) to schedule your first lesson.

Learn-To-Swim: Private Lessons can be used as an alternative to group lessons. Basics of swimming and water safety will be taught in a nurturing, safe and positive environment.  

Pre-Team: Private Lessons can equip children who are not yet ready to commit to a competitive swim team with the fundamentals and techniques of "legal" strokes while in a one-on-one, fun and motivating swim practice environment.  Watch your child's love for swimming develop and their skills advance, preparing their journey toward becoming a competitive swimmer.

Secondary Sport: If Swimming is a secondary sport for your child, use Private Lessons as a way to keep your child engaged year-round!

Competitive Swimmers Edge: Scheduling Private Lessons on a monthly basis is the fast track to strengthening individual stroke mechanics and technique. 

Adult Swim Lessons: Swimming is a safe, sustainable and effective form of exercise.  It's never too late to learn how to swim or overcome a fear of water.  We will provide the nurturing, encouraging, supportive environment that will enable you to feel comfortable and competent in the water at your pace.
