Everyone advised me against learning swimming as an adult but I took a chance with Veronique as my swimming-instructor and she proved everyone wrong. I am a BIG person and she made me overcome all my phobias and helped me learn. She is a really patient teacher and respects your limitations, and yet pushes you subtly to get out of your comfort zone. I am really happy that I found her and I highly recommend her as a swimming instructor for both kids and adults.The best part is she slips in a little bit of workout and Yoga tips into your swimming class, which helps you A LOT once you are in water and actually swimming :)
First of all, the best thing about her lesson was showing me how much fun it is to swim in open water. Luckily I had Suzies private lesson to introduce me to swimming in AP. She taught me the basics, such as how to enter the water and be at ease in a cold water. Also, she gave me clear, practical advice for my goal of swimming from Alcatraz: starting from a boat entry, directions to AP, pacing, and coping with cramps, choppy water, etc. She always provides encouragement, as well as tells me how to improve. As a beginner, I learned many techniques in a short time, but more importantly she teaches how great open-water swimming is! Thank you, Suzie.
Scott has been training me at the YMCA for my first triathlon. Since it is my first one and I don't know anything, he has been super helpful. He is very knowledgable about body mechanics and form on the bike, running, swimming and strength training, which is helpful in improving your performance and in preventing injuries. Scott is also has a deep understanding of nutrition and how that helps your training. He is also very friendly and helpful with any questions.
I absolutely love SafeSplash! We started at the Antioch location in August and have loved the experience. The staff are wonderful and we would recommend to anyone looking for swimming lessons.
Exceptional ! Personalised care , customized teaching , expert training.
I teach all ages to swim and enjoy the water. I offer swimming or water exercise for fun, fitness and relaxation. Thank you for your interest. I look forward to hearing from you!
Because I connect well with kids, and am passionate about swimming, I can easily help your child in pursuing whatever level they hope to achieve, regardless of their first impressions of the water. They'll love swimming!
I will be teaching individuals of all ages the safety, skills and fun in swimming from coast to coast. I've been teaching for 4 years now and having competitively swimming for 13 years. I enjoy swimming, and one of my passions is helping others achieve their goals.
I teach the basic four strokes. I also will help any fear or phobias of drowning get resolved with a for-sure-to-stay above-water tread and float. I will teach how to safely and properly dive, and if interested, how to compete in a professional swimming meet.
I've been swimming for over 10 years, and I was on my old high school's varsity swim team. I have also taught children with ages, from 8 to 10, for a short time too.
We do swim lessons really well.
I have been an aquatics instructor at the University of California at San Francisco for the past five years. I have been the top requested instructor averaging over 40 clients per week. I have all of my certifications up-to-date: CPR, first aid, and lifeguarding. I have had five years of experience working with special needs children and adults. I have volunteered for the Challenged Athletes Foundation as a swim instructor for children with prosthetics. You will see an improvement in your swimming after a few classes together. This is guaranteed!
We are a family-owned and -operated summer learn-to-swim program offering lessons in the Tri Valley area. For over 25 years, we have been offering swim lessons for ages 18 months to adult. We are proud to have the smallest group classes in the area, with a maximum of 3 students per class. We offer clients group, private, parent/tot and stroke and conditioning classes. All are for a very affordable price; group lessons are $100 for 8 lessons. Daily lessons and very small group classes are a great combination for swimming success. Trained staff are dedicated to promoting water safety, fitness and fun. It's the only sport/lesson that can save your child's life!
Hello! My name is Jen, and I'm a 26-year-old assistant aquatic director at U.C. Berkeley who would love nothing more than to teach you or your child to swim. Swimming and swimming instruction are my passions that I enjoy sharing with others. I have 10 years of experience working with children and adults of all ages, including children with fear of water, special needs, and other specific circumstances. I have experience coaching swimming at the masters level and waterpolo. I am lifeguard and lifeguard instructor certified, emergency medical responder certified as well as CPR certified for the professional rescuer (adult and pediatric). I live in the Oakland area, but would be willing to travel in the evenings to either teach at your home or local community pool. Swim lessons can be expensive and often impersonal. As someone who has worked in aquatic programs for a long time, my wish is that your child will get a quality experience at a cost less than what you would pay at a swim school. My rates are as follows: * A single private lesson (30 minutes) -- $40 * A package of five private lessons -- $175 * A package of 10 private lessons -- $300 Before any lessons are taught, a swim lesson agreement will be signed as well as payment in full. Because I work full-time, I will only be taking on one to two clients depending on location and the amount of lessons that are paid for. I have references available upon request, who would be more than willing to speak on my behalf. Have a great day!
I am friendly and outgoing with unlimited patience and a love of what I do! I am prompt and diligent when working on a project.
I have been swimming for many years. I was on swim teams. I have taken lifeguard classes and have trained others already. It is encouraging to be able to do what you hope you can. I can help you.
I specialize in teaching special needs children and adults how to swim. I have over 10 years of experience and a 100% success rate.
Because my background has been in competitive aquatics, I have been able to create a lesson plan that is geared towards competitive development. My belief is that it is important to learn how to swim as you would compete with it for the best results. It is important to learn technically vs practically. The swim lessons that I offer are completely tailored to my clients and their goals. I have been teaching swim lessons privately and for other swim schools locally for over 5 years years while continuing to train as a collegiate athlete. As new techniques and cutting edge systems are brought up through my training, I integrate them into my swim process for the most current and advanced guidance for maximum results.
