Our lessons are conducted at a residence that offers both an indoor and outdoor heated pool in South Lubbock. 

We meet four times a week, Monday through Thursday, for 10 minutes each day. Swimming is a motor skill, much like crawling, so repetition is key when teaching these types of lessons. The attention span of a child is not very long, by meeting so frequently we are able to maximize what your child can learn in the 4-6 weeks that they will be in lessons with us. We offer a nurturing attitude to help your child realize their full potential. Your child will not graduate our program until they can safely self-rescue themselves in the water.

A $100 registration fee secures your time spot upon registration. 

Once lessons begin, tuition payments can be set up to pay the tuition.


Drowning Prevention

Drowning Prevention: According to the CDC, drownings are the leading cause of accidental deaths in children ages 1-4. This MUST end. Our society insists that children be happy and relaxed around water. But as a child begins to exhibit caution around water, it is a sign that they are becoming more aware of their environment and their own limitations; it means they are becoming SAFER. It makes no sense to play games in the water to make them feel safe if they are not. 

First we teach them to swim, to survive in the water; the comfort and enjoyment will follow naturally and safely. Learning to swim does not have to be fun. It is knowing how to swim that is fun. The learning process is often difficult and learning to swim is a process. It must involve breath control, propulsion, rotation, and floating and must provide each child with the survival skills necessary to save their life. Readiness is irrelevant; babies as young as six months can be taught to ¬float, and all children over a year can learn to swim. 

Children who can only swim with ‘floaties’ or when they can touch the bottom CANNOT REALLY SWIM, and babies can drown in wading pools, buckets, toilets, hot tubs, and the like. Many parents feel that lessons for very young toddlers or infants are not necessary because they are always watching, and although supervision is the most important deterrent to drowning, who can say they constantly keep their eyes on an active two-year old? Other parents rely on flotation devices: water wings, floaties, swim sweaters, and the like. These devices put the child in a vertical posture, opposite of the proper posture for swimming, they cause panic when removed and may cause a false sense of security in both the child and the parent.
