Creating Quality Swim Instruction on the Central Coast since 1984
Our fun, award winning swim lessons will gently bring your child to the world of swimming. Classes incorporate songs and play as child learn to feel comfortable in the water, all while learning essential skills for swimming and safety.
As children grow and skills develop, they move up levels, learn more, and become sure, confident swimmers. Our goal is that all children not only learn to swim but love doing it as well.
To make sure we continue grow and use the most innovative techniques, we participate in national and international swim school conferences. Your swimmer will be given homework after every class to work on their skills at home (you do not need a pool to do our homework!).
