For $36, today’s side deal gets you one month of once-a-week swim lessons at American Swim Academy, a $72 value. You can redeem this Groupon at all four academy locations, in Dublin, Fremont, Livermore, and Newark. As part of this deal, the usual $30 registration fee will be waived.

Teaching hydrophobes to love the liquid and perfect their submarine impersonations since 1973, the academy has lessons for toddlers, kids, teenagers, adults, and everyone in between or beyond. Its CPR-certified instructors can coax a sleek and confident seal that slips through the blue and loves fresh-caught cod from even the most timid of swimmers. The indoor, heated pools allow for lessons all year, and the mandated small class sizes (usually no more than four) keep the attention on learners and interaction between teacher and student personal and productive. Classes are available throughout the week, including evenings and weekends for the busy adult.

New customers only. Reservations required.


Contra Costa Times and NBC Bay Area featured the Dublin location of the American Swim Academy. Yelpers give the Dublin location an average of four stars, and nearly 400 Facebookers are fans of the academy:

  • With his nerves in check, Sanjay Singh cautiously steps into the indoor pool at the American Swim Academy in Dublin. Only six weeks ago, the 45-year-old Pleasanton resident didn't know how to swim. Now he's able to float and is working on perfecting his stroke. – Meghan Brown, Contra Costa Times
  • American Swim Academy really rocks…The instructors are knowledgable and sensitive to their students. – Linda M., Yelp

American Swim Academy

The certified instructors from American Swim Academy recognize that, unlike many other mammals, humans aren't born with the ability to swim safely. Their passion for teaching students how to glide through the water without worry propels each class at the academy and inspires students of all ages to silence the mocking comments from their neighbor's dolphin. Each instructor must have obtained both CPR and academy swim training before leading lessons, which are structured to meet swimmers' abilities.

Furthering the tenants of safety and control, all academy classes are hosted inside an indoor facility with pools designed specifically for instruction. Waters are heated to 92 degrees and feature wide steps, teaching stations, and shallow areas for small children. On-deck managers oversee each class to heighten swimmer safety and shout out Olympic swimming records every five minutes for inspiration.

Customer Reviews

The only reason why I give it 4 stars is because I wish they evaulated my daughter before placing her with a class. It seems too easy for her.

The facility is clean and bright and our instructor was great. My son loved his first lesson.
Emily B. · January 24, 2017
Love it! The atmosphere and staffs are friendly enough that make you want to the lesson yourself.
