Here at swimwithleeanna, we believe that anyone can learn to swim — regardless of age, background, or experience level. Our fun, safe, and caring beginner curriculum promises a compassionate and comprehensive learning experience that meets you at your level best — wherever that may be! — guaranteed to inspire your confidence and ease in the water. Our program has transformed hundreds of beginner adults into successful, full-fledged swimmers, and we can’t wait for you to be next!
Our classes are designed to teach you to swim as safely and quickly as possible. We recommend a weekly lesson plan, free of distractions and interruptions, to achieve the best results. To put it simply: the more you’re in class, the faster you’ll learn!
does it take?
We’ll start with the basics: swim breathing, kicking, and floating, before moving onto freestyle and backstroke swimming, as well as treading water, simple underwater techniques, and jumping. In your first phase of lessons, you’ll be aided with props (like kick boards and barbells) to ensure the utmost support.
Our basics course culminates in a standard final exam, whereupon adults seeking further training can move forward to advanced swimming techniques (diving, turns…you name it!).
When we say anyone can swim, we mean it! We know that fear or negative childhood experiences can be strong, determining factors in many adults’ decision to stay away from the water. However, at swimwithleeanna, we can assure you that you will learn to swim in a kind and stress-free environment — no matter your previous history, persistant anxiety, or experiences with other coaches.
Our curriculum is cumulative and gradual, with each student setting their own pace. Our goal is to support and instruct, never criticize, and to inspire a lifelong passion and confidence in the water. Our training school has seen beginner adults who had once been told they would never learn to swim quickly floating and learning to doggy-paddle by their second session.
Your comfort and safety are most important to us, and we’ll make sure you towel off for the day with success. Once you start swimming, you’ll quickly wonder how you ever lived without it!
