I have been swimming competitively since I was six, so if you want to be the best, you have to train with the best. Swimming is not just a sport in the pool, to be the best it takes serious dedication in and outside of the pool. You have to build endurance outside the water, so that when you get in the water you are able to sprint at a longer rate. I am a certified lifeguard and have certifications in CPR, First Aed, AED, and Lifeguard Training. I am very passionate about teaching swimming because it's more than swimming to me, it taught me discipline...my dad was my coach and getting me on this sport was one of the techniques he used for me...

I grew up as the oldest of four brothers, whom I pretty much raised when we were all outside. I played 11 sports growing up, and have been a camp counselor, swim instructor, hitting coach, and official, throughout my life. I positively LOVE opening up children's worlds with new abilities that they didn't know they had if they are willing to put in a little work. High fives and positive encouragement are my two pillars of teaching, and above all else, I can guarantee that in addition to learning, your son or daughter will come smiling, and looking forward to next week. They'll probably also ask you to practice with them. (:...

We are a family based swim school. We don’t believe swim lessons should be expensive. Parents should not have to opt out of swimming lessons because they are too expensive. This is a matter of life or death. Roughly 10 people die from drowning per day. We specialize in providing affordable, quality swim lessons to the community in an effort to reduce the number of drownings and encourage swimming as a lifestyle activity. We offer group and private swim lessons for all age groups starting at six months. We have a mobile swim school that travels to community pools in the Atlanta area.

Your Swimming Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

Swim classes cost $40 to $80 per hour for private lessons or $100 to $160 per month for weekly classes with a small group of people. Fees increase for extended sessions longer than 1 hour and for teachers who were professional competitive swimmers.

During a swim class that's typically 30 to 60 minutes long, you should expect to learn:

  • Floating techniques
  • Breathing practices
  • Basic kicking styles
  • Treading water
  • Basic swimming strokes
  • Diving and underwater swimming techniques
  • Long-distance swimming methods
  • Rescue, CPR, and snorkel training for advanced lessons

Supplies to bring to a swimming class include:

  • Swimwear that fits properly
  • A swim diaper for children who aren't potty trained
  • Tote bag to keep your clothes dry and store your things
  • Flip-flops to keep your feet clean around the pool area
  • Sunscreen if the outdoor pool gets direct sunlight
  • Swimming cap and hair ties
  • Flotation devices
  • Toiletries for showering
  • Plastic water bottle
  • Towels
  • Goggles
  • Earplugs

Extra tips: The swimming pool may offer some of these items for free or at a fee. For girls learning to swim competitively, a 1-piece bathing suit is necessary.

People without a fear of water need 15 to 20 hours of swim classes on average to learn swimming. Those who must also overcome their fears of drowning will need more time and practice to swim confidently.

A good age for a child to take swimming lessons is from 2 to 5 years old. After this age, the lungs of children are strong enough to hold their breath underwater long enough to swim.

Good to know: Introducing a child to the water at 1 year old helps them feel comfortable in a pool, although they won't be able to swim yet.

Closely supervised infant swim classes are typically safe for children from the age of 6 months onward. However, infant swim classes don't guarantee that a child will learn enough to stop themselves from drowning.

Note: Some doctors also caution that children prone to respiratory infections shouldn't swim in chlorinated pools until they are more than 2 years old.

You can get swimming lessons as an adult at most pools with private instructors. Call ahead to ask for the schedule of adult classes, age requirements, and a list of anything you should bring with you.

Use this checklist before booking classes at the local pool to find a good swimming class:

  • Compare class prices from 3+ teachers or pools near you.
  • Ask for proof of their water safety education, lifeguard training, and other related credentials.
  • Read their reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Check that the swimming pool facility has liability insurance.
  • Keep a copy of the terms and conditions of the swimming lesson contract and refund policy.
  • Beware of the lowest prices that can indicate low-quality lessons.
  • Don't make a full season payment upfront for lessons unless you can get a partial refund later.
  • How long have you been teaching people to swim?
  • What’s the minimum amount of experience required for a teacher?
  • Can students warm up in the pool before classes begin?
  • Is swimming practice time at the pool outside of lessons included in this price?
  • Will I get a locker to store my things in during class?
  • Do you offer discounts for families?
  • How long does it typically take to teach a child to swim?
  • What should I work on to swim better?
  • Which exercises should students practice at home that help to learn swimming faster?
  • Can you create a customized training plan for each student?
  • How do you describe your teaching style?
  • What do you do to help children overcome their fears of water?
  • Are goggles or swim caps required for all lessons?

Tracey is exceptional, not only is she caring and goes the extra mile but she ensures safety and discipline with the kids and she does a great job balancing both. My girls have enjoyed her encouragement and motivation over the 6 months we have been swimming. We are now ready for the next step, swim team!
