With state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, the professional instructors at A-Swing Golf Academy develop lesson plans that make swing improvement fun and, most importantly, functional. Their approach to instruction aims to instill fundamentals in all skill areas, including full strokes, chips, slapshots, and putts. During lessons and swing-analysis sessions, the golf gurus employ the technological intricacies of a high-speed video camera to capture a player's unique swing motion and identify unfavorable tendencies.
Golf pros also follow students onto the course for playing lessons, in which they coach the intangibles of course management, risk assessment, and subtle intimidation tactics such as grunting during an opponent's backswing or teeing up with a rusty nail and glass eyeball.

The fully certified instructors at Swim with Mr. Blue teach children of all abilities how to traverse the water during weekly swim lessons. The blue, green, and yellow levels maintain small class sizes, enabling instructors to meet the needs of each child as he or she learns a variety of swimming skills and dolphin words in a heated saltwater pool, which stays open year-round. Blue-level swimmers conquer “swim-safe” skills, such as holding their breath and rolling over in the water, while green-level swimmers graduate to tackling the freestyle and the backstroke. Those who wish to gain advanced swimming prowess can sign up for yellow-level classes, in which students take on “swim-team” skills, including lap exercises, long-distance workouts, and underwater debating.
