Year ‘round Lessons are recommended for young children who are starting a swimming program.. Drowning is the #1 cause of childhood death in children under the age of five in California. Weekly visits to the pool will instill respect and safety skills when they are in or around any body of water and add to the Layers of Protection against drownings. Remember, the only 100% preventative measure against a childhood drowning is the constant visual supervision from a qualified adult.




Private Lessons

One-on-one, private lessons are the most efficient way to learn to swim for any age, but they are especially recommended for the fearful or very shy child. Individualized attention allows instructors to focus on skills needed, and breeze through those skills more easily attained or already mastered by the student.

Our primary goal is to teach our students how to relax, appreciate and love the water. We are more interested in the quality of the stroke than speed, for as the stroke improves, it becomes easier, and speed naturally increases.

Our approach is firm, but gentle and loving, and we never push the fearful child. We invite you to come to our indoor facility, get a friendly and informative personal tour, and watch any lessons at any time. Lessons are 20 minutes long. Students who graduate earn beautiful charms and they get to choose treats from our “Treasure Chest.”

Semi Private



Semi – Private Lessons

Two students per instructor are great for friends or siblings who are near the same swimming ability and age range. The children have fun together and encourage each other. These lessons are especially good for the fearful child. You must supply your own partner, but if you don’t already have one, you can join our Semi-Private Partners Search Facebook Group to assist you in finding a partner. Lessons are 20 minutes long. Students who graduate earn beautiful charms and they get to choose treats from our “Treasure Chest.”

Group Lessons
(3+ years old only)

Group lessons are extremely good for outgoing or competitive children, but shy children can blossom in these classes as well.  All of our Group classes are ongoing, with students graduating from one level to the next when they acquire the required skills, not at the end of sessions or months. New groups are always opening up and we create classes as needed for your convenience based on availability.

Our group lessons are limited to 4 students at our beginner levels, with 6 students in our advanced (Stroke) Clinic (see below). We pride ourselves in our use of circuits so that students are always moving and learning in the class, not just waiting for their turn while watching another child. We use teaching equipment to keep everyone working together. This means that your child is learning throughout the lesson, getting a 28 minute lesson with each class, as opposed to waiting their turn for 2-3 minutes of instruction in most other programs.

Classes begin with review, move into introduction of new skills, and then play swimming games the last few minutes as a reward for hard work and improvement. Lessons are 28 minutes long. Students who graduate earn beautiful charms and they get to choose treats from our “Treasure Chest.”

Some children benefit most from 1-group and 1-private class per week. This gives them the attention they need to work on more difficult skills, along with peer pressure and group exposure.

Dear Academy,

Nathan, during Christmas breakfast, fell into my brother-in-law’s pool fully dressed.  He swam to the side of the pool, pulled his head up and held on to the edge.  As parents everyone knows how one brief situation can change everything.  We are grateful…
