2 year old son, Austin, managed to climb up the slide,
and over the fence we had surrounding the pool. And
we found him floating on his back, safely, just like
Swim Safe taught him. Thank goodness we stuck with
our lessons." A.L.
daughter, Michelle, learned all four strokes from
Swim Safe, then joined Anaheim Aquatics in May. In
August the same year, at the OC Champion meet, she
won the breastroke race,and came in second in the
freestyle race. Thank you!" S.K.
a party, my 2 year old son Jack jumped on a plastic
pool cover. I was bringing some food into the kitchen.
Jack thought the cover wouldn't sink. Fortunately
he'd had enough lessons at Swim Safe to know to roll
over and float on his back when the pool cover collapsed
underneath him. Thank you Swim Safe!" J.D.
cleaning up in the backyard with my 18 month old son,
my wife went to answer the phone. She had left Joey
outside with me, but I didn't know she'd gone inside.
And when I turned around, I saw Joey floating on his
back, safe." J.L.
son had 2 near drowning approximately 5 years ago.
He had been terrified of water since that episode.
I knew about the Swim Safe Swim School because I had
my daughter there many years before. Jim and his staff
have been very patient with my son and very supportive
to his feelings and fears. He has been with Swim Safe
for about 2 years and now swims laps around the pool
and is looking at joining a swim team. I will continue
to support this school and ways of instruction and
recommend it often to others." P. S.
"My son Ethan's
biggest source of nervousness is being in the water.
After working with some of the most presitgious doctors
and teachers and coaches in Orange County, I have
concluded that Ms. Sarah is the best of them all.
She has broken through the barriers that none other
could even make claim to. Our Saturday swim lessons
are by far our greatest joy and biggest achievement
thanks to her extraordinary abilities with my child.
Thank you K. S.
2 year old son somehow climbed over the pool fence
and fell in the pool. Thank goodness he had taken
lessons at Swim Safe as he floated safely just like
he had been taught. Thank you so much."
age 2, both Noelle & Robert enjoyed swimming freestyle
and backstroke across a 25 yard pool.
5 year old learned to swim in less than ten private
lessons even though he was petrified to put his face
in the water at first. Thank you."
14 months, Cellin used the backfloat to save herself
after falling into a pool fully clothed.
has been taking swim lessons since April. He started at
12 months old. A couple of weeks ago Bryce and his 11 year
old brother were playing in the backyard. Bryce was trying
to pull something out of the pool and fell in. He immediately
rolled onto his back and put his hands behind his head.
His brother jumped in and pulled him out. We were relieved
to know that even in a cold pool with all his clothes on,
he knew just what to do. Giving us the time to get him out
safely. Thank you SO much for teaching him this valuable
tool! Thanks again." grateful parent
"I have been with
Swim Safe for 2 years now and I can't believe what Swim
Safe has accomplished in this time. The private lessons
have taught my son to love swimming. He has become a great
swimmer at 3 1/2 years old. You can't find the "one
on one" Swim Safe has given us anywhere else! Thank
you so much!" K. F.
"My wife and I enrolled
our grand daughters Summer and Skylar in your swim school.
We were so pleased to see the progress they made in such
a short time. Please extend our thanks to Jamie as she was
the girl's teacher and she did an amazing job with them.
Aside from being a competent, professional instructor, her
mannerisms and friendly personality endeared the girls to
her which made all the difference in the world. Again, please
tell her thank you." D. R.
used to work at a brain injury hospital where the majority
of the 2 years and under children were near-drowning victims.
This experience left me looking for a place to bring my
children at an early age to teach water safety. I have 4
children who were taught as young as 5 months old to be
water safe. I had not found another program that taught
safety first. This service should be provided in every community.
I cannot recommend this enough to parents who want to keep
their children safe. Kids do not make big splashes when
they fall into water. If they are not afraid, finding the
wall or floating on their back will allow them to yell and
get someone's attention. His instructors and this swim school
are incredible and have given me the comfort I need and
the ability my children need to be safe in water. I commend
then for the great service they provide to our community." J. M.
"My son has attended
Swim Safe Swim School since he was 5 months old. I placed
him in the school so early, because I have known several
children who drowned under the age of 2. The teachers at
this school are incredible, and very loving. They understand
the concept of how to communicate with children, and they
also believe in the child no matter what the age. My son
was pushed into a jacuzzi by another child, and he was able
to get his way to the top and I thank the teachers for teaching
Jacob those skills. Thank you for considering Swim Safe
for the community." C.A.
"I enrolled my son
in Swim Safe Swim School 10 months ago, at the age of 3
years 2 months. Within a month of lessons he learned to
swim freestyle independently. The teacher was very patient
and communicated well with him. I've been impressed with
the teachers ability to teach proper technique in a manner
that young children can understand. My son continues to
develop his swimming skills, and I have comfort in knowing
he's able to swim, as we have a swimming pool at home as
well as some friends. I strongly recommend the swim school
to anyone with young children." V. G.
"A few weeks ago, I came
to you with concern regarding my kid's unpleasant experience,
while enrolled in the City of Orange summer swimming program.
They both went into the program excited to learn and have
fun. Unfortunately, they just became scared of the water
and to say the least incapable of even floating. Since we
enrolled in your school, the results Madison and Andrew
are reaching in such a short period of time are dazzling.
They are both leaping forward, week after week; while having
fun and rebuilding their confidence. I am amazed by the
techniques you utilize to effectively teach the fundamentals
to both of them. More amazing, your approach to teaching
is truly taileried to fit the kid's personal learning style,
abilities, and personality. I would also like to add that
our experience with all the teachers we dealth with at your
school has been very positive. Finally, we wish we had known
you when the kids were babies, as we see the little ones
in your pool swimming before they can even walk. Today,
we are certain that our kids will become good safe swimmers.
Who knows...you might have opened to them the doors to a
lifelong rewarding sport." B. B.
daughter (2 years old) has been swimming at Swim Safe for
over a year and is doing spectacular. Swim Safe taught her
with loving care and most importantly, she is water safe!"
to my daughter's stroke technique lessons this winter she
was able to qualify for her high school swim team this spring.
We have enjoyed our return to Swim Safe where Adelina first
learned to swim."
SWIM SAFE SWIM SCHOOL our aim is to assist the student (and
parents) in achieving an effortless, strong swimmer. Such
swimmers will enjoy swimming for the rest of their lives
in recreation, exercise (health) or competitive activities.
In California, to enjoy ocean swimming safely as well as
other aquatic activities, one must reach a fair degree of
swimming competence. Our lessons and pre-competitive program
will bring the swimmer to that level and beyond including
high levels of competitive swimming.
