Frequently asked questions

General

How much are swim lessons?

This will depend on what you want to learn, and where. Private lessons will be discussed on a client-to-client basis. This is because the prices will be higher if the swim coach has to travel a long distance to get to your home pool. The classes are sold in chunks, and are gauged by how many lessons the student will want. They begin at $100 for one lesson, followed by $270 for 3 lessons, and $500 for 5 lessons.

Where do classes take place?

We coach in both Broward County and Miami-Dade. Depending on where you are located, we can meet at a convenient facility. We can also meet you at the community pool of your choice or right at your own home pool.

How long are your sessions?

30-60 minutes depending on a swimmer.

If I miss a lesson, can I make it up? Will I still be charged for a missed lesson?

If you are unable to attend a lesson, you must notify me of the cancellation at least 12 hours prior to the lesson time or the lesson fee is non-refundable and the lesson cannot be made up.

What are your swim lesson rates?

It depends on your location. Please reach out to us to find out.

I have two or more children. Can I have a group class? What are the rates?

Yes, absolutely, to find out about rates, please reach out to us.

What equipment is necessary for a swimming lesson?

THE ESSENTIALS

Swimsuit: Obviously you will need a swimsuit to learn how to swim. For men, these are usually swim briefs or swim trunks. Boardshorts aren’t very good for swimming, as they create too much drag.

Swim cap: A swim cap is very useful if you or your child has long hair and you want to avoid it getting into the face while swimming.

Swimming Goggles: Swimming goggles are mandatory, as they allow swimmers to put their heads under water without getting water in the eyes. This will permit more relaxed and streamlined swimming.

OTHER SWIMMING EQUIPMENT

Kickboards: Kickboards are devices made of foam or other materials that float, and they come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The main purpose of using a kickboard is to be able to stay afloat while your legs do all the work.

Pull Buoys: Like kickboards, pull buoys are flotation devices that come in a variety of shapes and sizes. But unlike a kickboard, which gives the upper body a rest, pull buoys are placed between the legs to keep the legs afloat without kicking so that you can work your upper body.

What age to start swim classes?

Babies can enter the pool as early as one week old, but we work with them once they are 2 years old. The earlier a child learns how to swim, the greater skill the student will be able to acquire, so it’s good to get them started as early as you and the child is comfortable with. Very young babies will likely only want to stay in the water for 10-15 minutes. You know your child best, so take it slow, and get started as early as is comfortable!

Where to get swimming lessons?

It depends on where you are and what kind of swimming you want to do. Competitive swimmers need a pool that is more professional. For the rest, you can use any pool that is big enough for adults. We have locations in Miami, Miami Beach, Aventura, Golden Beach, Sunny Isles Beach, Bal Harbour, and Surfside areas, as well as in other areas of Broward and Miami Dade counties, at both private and home pools! Call us to learn more.

How to prepare for swimming lessons?

You can bring a kickboard, your goggles, a swim cap, flip flops, a towel, and fins. If you are preparing a child for lessons, speak to them clearly about what the lessons will consist of. Make sure your body has energy with a light snack, eaten at least 30 minutes before you get in the pool. Pack a bag with a change of clothes for when you’re finished swimming.
