Swim Strong teaches the proper techniques to prepare the student to be a strong, safe and competent swimmer. We want them to enjoy the sport for a lifetime. Some may want to become competitive swimmers – that’s great! We’d love to help them reach those goals…but students will progress at their own individual pace. We encourage them to learn all of the competitive strokes (freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly) so they can successfully try out for more competitive programs. We work with those who are in the very beginning level as well as those who are already competing but need stroke enhancement work.

Adaptive Program: Drowning is the leading cause of death for children with autism. But it doesn’t have to be. Swim Strong provides water safety education and teaches the swimming skills that will help your child be safe, effective and confident in the water. Safety is our first priority. Our instructors are trained to work with each child individually in order to meet them where they are. They understand that every child is unique and are patient and able to provide different examples to help the students learn.
