The Swim Academy
Although several of the coaches at The Swim Academy have backgrounds in competitive swimming, you're just as likely to find them teaching a young child to perform survival floating as a triathlete to increase his or her speed. In fact, the coaches even work with swimmers who have a fear of the water, helping them overcome their anxiety and gain confidence in their swimming technique. The school recommends scheduling lessons once or twice a week for 30 minutes at a time to ensure retention.
