What You'll Get
Swimming isn’t just great exercise; it’s also the only way to survive the giant dunk tanks used to punish the losers of spelling bees. Compensate for consonantal confusion with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get one month of weekly swim lessons at Sea Star Swimschool and Gymnastics Center in Missouri City (a $65 value). The usual $25 registration fee for new customers will be waived for this Groupon; however, customers will be charged the fee if they wish to continue taking classes once the month is up.
Sea Star satisfies water seekers with empowering swim classes for swimmers of all levels, ages 6 months through adult. Child classes are divided into multiple levels, beginning with an emphasis on overcoming fear of the water and then progressing to higher levels, in which foundational swim know-how and life-saving skills are imparted to eager guppies. Advanced child levels focus on learning different strokes and even boosting speed for children who are on swim teams or are frequently taunted by dolphins. Adult classes are also divided into beginner and advanced lessons, assisting students with aqua matters such as overcoming water anxiety, correcting strokes, and improving times for triathletes.
The staff at Sea Star relaxes nervous paddlers with a supportive environment in which students can learn at a comfortable pace. All instructors go through a rigorous training program, helping them discern between human swimmers and showoffy merpeople. Children are awarded with ribbons and a report card to celebrate passing each level, and parents can watch all lessons from the dry, cozy viewing room.

About Sea Star Swimschool and Gymnastics Center
Sea Star Swimschool and Gymnastics Center's instructors guide kids through gymnastics courses, and shepherd students of all ages through swimming lessons designed to build coordination and promote safety in aquatic environments. Eleven levels of swimming lessons craft confident swimmers out of students of any age, with 30-minute lessons combining drills and activities that bolster aquatic prowess without surgically swapping out limbs with paddles. Students are separated by age and ability, with adults separated into beginner and advanced classes covering everything from tackling fear of the water to training for a triathlon in a supportive group atmosphere. Parents and hydrophobic invisible friends can watch children’s lessons in the facility’s viewing area, beaming with pride as their little aquanauts master a variety of strokes and breathing techniques.
The 45-minute gymnastic lessons—held within the 2,000-square-foot gymnastics gym—help kids build the coordination and grace needed to steal cookies from the cookie jar without setting off laser alarm systems. As their parents watch from a viewing area, little ones aged 1–3 learn activities that safely improve flexibility and strength on the gym’s padded floor. Older tots traverse the trampolines, vault, and balance beams. Kids 6 or older can advance to tumbling or classic gymnastics activities on apparatuses such as bar and beam rings, cultivating more confidence in their abilities than a heavyweight champion with the genetic properties of a butterfly and a bee.
