SwimJim's Mission​

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 and around the water.

Our Lessons

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.

*Please keep in mind that at all SwimJim locations there will be several classes coinciding at the same time during each half-hour of lessons.
