Are you considering enrolling your child(ren) in swim lessons, or are they interested in joining the swim team?

Why Swimming is a great choice: 

  • Swimming is a lifesaving skill. Drowning is the number 1 cause of death of children ages 1-5 years old and the number one accidental cause of death of children ages 1-14. African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans account for 3x more drownings than Caucasians at any age. 
  • Once a person learns to swim, it opens up recreational and exercise opportunities that will enhance the quality of their lives throughout their lifetimes
  • Learning to swim is often one of the first times that young children feel uncomfortable, and mastering the discomfort to learn to swim is often a huge confidence builder that spills over into the dry areas of the person's life. The older a person is when they learn to swim, the more uncomfortable they will be, and the more exciting it is when they learn!
  • Children who can swim can participate in club and high school swim teams and competitions. This teaches the value of working toward a goal and may even lead to a college scholarship!

Why LJAX is a great choice: 

  • LJAX is committed to providing Northern Arizona with high quality swimming instruction for all, ages 2 and older. We believe in strong technique and try to teach our swimmers at any age or level the best and most efficient technique for each stroke
