At SwimJim, we take a careful and focused approach to swimming lessons. We believe that these skills and abilities lead to life-saving habits for your children. Our students build confidence in the water, so they can be safe and have fun.
Each of our classes has a low instructor-to-student ratio. Every child receives the attention they need to becoming safer around the water. Our beginner and infant/toddler swimming lessons focus on developing effective habits and techniques in the water that don’t often come naturally to children. Some of the skills learned include the back float, breath control, and how to manage a water emergency. Our method will help them gain these abilities at their own pace, all while having fun as they learn. Children will feel more comfortable learning each new technique, as they understand their movement in the water.
After those first important skills are mastered, we then move on to more advanced skills such as perfecting breathing, arm movements, stroke timing, and head rotation for all competitive strokes. Our goal is to provide fundamental knowledge and skills that will stay with your child for the rest of their lives.
If you feel that your child needs a smaller class setting, or extra one-on-one attention, we also offer semi-private and private swimming lessons.
