Advanced 1: Stroke Readiness

The staff is truly amazing, helpful and encouraging at the John Jay swim class location. We had such a positive experience for our daughter (5yrs) who has been frightened of learning how to swim, but loves the water. She won't let us go or be left alone even with floats the times we have tried (no trauma experience). Learning to swim is not an option in our family, it's a life saving skill. Her teacher, Greg, took her by the hand and she chatted his ear off feeling at ease immediately. I could tell the coaches do their jobs well just by seeing how at ease they are to be able to help a child who fears water. All the coaches were extremely friendly and welcoming, cheering my daughter on and praising her efforts. She beamed with such happiness and confidence leaving her first class. She is ready for her next lesson(s). DEFINITELY recommend.

Me and My Shadow (30 Minute Class)

This was a great first swim class for my son (and me). The coaches were really great and I'm amazed at how much my son has learned and how much fun he has in the water. We will sign-up again for sure!

Beginner 1: Water Exploration (40 Minute Class)

My daughter had a great experience in this class for her first time lessons. She was very timid to begin with but the playfulness and easy instructions of the coach made her very much at ease. She is now learning to swim on her own and also is able to swim underwater while holding her breath in only five classes. The only thing that was tough was that she changed coaches the first few weeks and now she has had a steady coach.
