Before man conquered his fear of water, he amused himself with dust sports such as pushing boulders off cliffs, wrestling tumbleweeds, and falling in the dust. Boldly embrace liquid with today's Groupon: for $40, you get eight group swimming lessons at Catch the Wave Swim Club in South Beloit. While classes are currently held at three different locations in the Rockford-Beloit area, the club will open a new, permanent facility with a 90 degree heated pool in South Beloit in April 2011.

Catch the Wave Swim Club's team of Red Cross– and CPR-certified instructors teaches swimming novices to tread waters soundly and skillfully. The club hosts year-round classes, with class sizes limited to four children at most to ensure attention and curb any desire for them to leave class to form a basketball team. During each 30-minute splash session (held twice per week over a month at a variety of times), instructors skim children over shallow waters like dainty dinghies, schooling them on human yachting techniques and basic water safety. Like all American marriages, class enrollment is ongoing and open.

Catch the Wave Swim Club

Owner Debbie Stoffregen has taught children to swim for more than 15 years, a background that helped her develop Catch the Wave Swim Club's unique instructor training program. Stoffregen only mints adult teachers and personally coaches them once they have achieved certifications in Red Cross CPR, lifeguarding, AED, and first aid. Instructors teach water safety with compassion, creating a family-like atmosphere to help adults overcome their fears, introduce infants as young as three months old (accompanied by a guardian) to the warm, 90-degree pool, and acclimate adolescents to their newly sprouted gills. Surrounded by healthy, confident swimmers, Stoffregen realized the sport could be used as a therapeutic intervention, and created classes for special-needs individuals and those desiring a low-impact way to stay fit.

Joe was great with my baby!
Jamie B. · April 15, 2016
Great experience. Loved the one on one techniques. My twin grandsons are now more comfortable with water, pools and water safety. I would recommend for first timers. Groupon a little tricky. Make sure they take your coupons the first visit. Instructors wonderful.
