Marlin Swim School, under the umbrella of The Sierra Marlins swimming organization, touts a cast of motivated instructors that convert non-buoyant beginners into floating aficionados through swim classes in a heated indoor pool. Swimmers of all skill levels can choose from a variety of group tutorials, which includes the 45-minute precompetitive class that fine-tunes strokes and introduces starts, turns, and what to do when an octopus tries to pick all eight of your pockets (for all ages). Thirty-minute learn to swim classes teach simmers three and up water safety and proper stroke techniques. During the 30-minute parent-tot class, munchkins acclimate themselves to pool water through songs and games in the calming presence of their parents (for ages 6 months to three years). The adult classes dedicate 30 minutes to the personal goals of each swimmer, whether it's to swim faster or to open an underwater deli.
Boost Swim School (formerly Marlin Swim School)
Given that roughly two-thirds of the planet's surface is covered with water, Jeff and Kristy Pearson firmly believe that knowing how to swim is a necessary life skill. The Pearsons and their staff of handpicked instructors impart this essential talent in lessons for students of all ages, from adults to children. Boost Swim School's mission is to teach people how to safely stay afloat and swim with fundamental stroke mechanics, but they also help attendees develop the form and technique needed to compete on a team. Regular practice is the best way to become comfortable with swimming, so the school hosts year-round lessons in its indoor pool, which remains heated to a comfortable 89 degrees regardless of the season.
