Bought for my girlfriend. Before these classes she could swim but barely. After these classes her swimming has improved dramatically. I've never seen her swim so fast. She still needs to keep practicing but she is a much better swimmer already. -- Very useful techniques learned in such a short time frame. Pool was always warm. Incredible deal.

the swim school is held at instructors home. It just didnt feel comfortable for us at first. I do have to say that the instructor is very good although and has a very no nonsense attitude, but he is good at getting results. I thought it would be more of a fun experience,but its all about getting results, which I realize is the point of swim lessons. I expected a store front, so for me it was a little unorthodox, but the lesson went very well.

THIS BUSINESS FALSELY ADVERTISES THEMSELVES. THE WEBSITE IS MISLEADING: THERE IS ONLY 1 INSTRUCTOR, THE SWIM FACILITY IS A RESIDENTIAL BACKYARD POOL, THE BUSINESS OWNER "KEN" HAS NO BUSINESS ETIQUETTE WHAT. SO EVER, THERE IS NO CUSTOMER SERVICE AT ALL! THE STYLE OF SWIM LESSONS ARE MORE FOR CONDITIONING RATHER THAN TECHNIQUE. (This is more for professional swimming vs kids swimming) . Could not talk to this man! Coordinating the schedule was a disaster! He also said I should expect this with the price I got... (I thought this was a swim discount but apparently you are compromising service & expectations. Can coach swim, but hard to look past the deception!

Instructer was rude and full of himself. The few pictures I saw on line made it look like an actual swim facility while in fact it is a private somewhat broken down residence with a small pool. They advertise lap swimming and junior lifeguard training but with such a small pool that is heated way to much it would be a joke to go there with those intentions. definately stay away.

The business is conducted in a very unprofessional manner. The coach made a derogatory comment which made us very uncomfortable. He was rude and condescending when we reached out to him. He made us feel like he was doing us a favor, not like we were his customers. Worst experience of our lives. Will not recommend to anyone!!

I would not have gone because I did not know it was in my area. This is a great way for kids to learn how to swim. Ken the instructor is a great teacher and my son looks forward to his lesson. He enjoys being there. I would reccomend this Swim school for people of all ages.
