kids swim lessons

In our kids swim lessons a lot of times kids don’t even realize they are in a class because they are having so much fun while they are learning! We introduce challenging new skills appropriate to the level of the swimmer and make swimming fun by mixing learning with playing. We believe in teaching children how to swim without creating fear and anxiety. Our approach builds confident swimmers who learn to love and respect the water.

Swimming isn’t just another extracurricular activity like soccer or dance. Swimming is a life saving skill. Formal swimming lessons can reduce your child’s risk of drowning by up to 88%. Kids swim lessons teach water safety and give your child lifelong opportunities to safely enjoy the water whether it be at a pool party, swimming in the ocean or being able to go surfing.

Kids swim lessons shouldn’t stop at 7 or 8 years old. Kids need to revisit swimming lessons to practice technique to be strong swimmers. Especially in San Diego, continuing kids swim lessons is a necessary safety precaution to prevent drowning. Swimming is the most popular recreational activity for children and teens ages 7-17. The stronger the swimmer, the safer they are. Invest in kids swim lessons so your child can become a strong swimmer who is capable of being safe in and around the water.
