What Makes Us Different?

  • We offer small classes (6:1 or 8:2 student:teacher ratio) to ensure individual attention.
  • We focus on having fun as well as skill progression to help students enjoy the water and overcome their fear.
  • Our levels are broken down by both age and skill level to make sure each student is challenged appropriately.
  • Our staff is highly trained in our level system to provide consistent and unified instruction across classes.
  • Rec&Ed puts safety first! A certified lifeguard is on duty at all times.
  • We believe that children learn best without using flotation devices. No belts, water wings, or lifejackets are used in any of our classes.
  • Our classes are structured to teach a logical skill progression and organized to provide a full class of instruction, not free swim.

"The instructors were patient. They used the right amout of 'push' without making
(my child) scared."
- Sheri A.
