My method is very serious with no frills. I do not play with the kids in the water, nor do I use props. This may seem harsh, but Swim To Live’s method works. You may be thinking that 15 minutes does not seem like enough time. But, it is actually an ideal length of time for a young child’s attention span. Anything beyond 15 minutes has proven to be non-productive. I am a very patient and gentle instructor, focusing on teaching basic swimming survival skills. I teach private 15 min lessons with a 95% success rate in first 4 – 6 days. Swim To Live lessons take place in a heated salt-water pool. This makes it more comfortable for your child, and gentler on their eyes.
Attention parents!!! Swim to Live is a life saving, intensive swim program. If you are wanting a pleasant introduction to water, this program is NOT for you. In the first few sessions, you can expect your child to appear as if they are drowning. They will gag, scream, cry, plead and sometimes even vomit. We promise you that this is very normal AND strongly suggest that you take a walk for the first few lessons. Encourage your child in between lessons and help them to practice what they are learning. This will reinforce what they are learning and build their confidence. Please refer to the rules page and DO NOT feed your child anything other then clear liquids 2-3 hrs before time of lesson. Throw up results in a $100 pool cleaning fine.
Please be sure to arrive a few minutes before your scheduled lesson. Due to high volume of swimmers, weather and other unforeseen circumstances, the schedule may vary 15 minutes or so. Unfortunately, Swim to Live cannot guarantee your swimmers will start at their exact scheduled time. We always do our very best to adhere to the schedule. Thank you for your patience and understanding!
