Swim Safe Academy Swim Classes

Taught in our indoor pool, our program focuses on swimming fundamentals and promotes active learning in class. The teaching philosophy is based on our instructors understanding not only how to teach swimming, but also included knowledge of child development. This program eases students into the water so they begin to feel safe and comfortable in the pool.


  • Emphasis is placed on proper water safety and learning through repetition and consistency
  • Positive reinforcement and encouragement are consistently provided by the instructors
  • Levels are organized by both age and ability level to assure suitability of instruction and group dynamic
