Welcome to Swim Lessons University: a progressive swim lesson system designed to make children safer when in and around the water.

Please note that in this program, children in Preschool, Beginner, and Intermediate lessons may be asked to wear swim aids.  These are not life jackets.  Many younger children do not have the physical stamina or muscle strength to keep their bodies in the correct positions during lessons.  They swim aid affords children the opportunity to keep their bodies in the correct swim position to learn the proper strokes.  As children progress, flotation pads can be removed.
