My 9-year old son has been taking individual swim lessons since the age of 4. Initially, my goal was to keep him safe around pools and be able to get out of the pool if he ever fell I to it. This slowly evolved into learning different strokes and doing them efficiently. The benefit of private lessons is that he gets highly individualized lessons that focus on his areas that need to be improved. All of the coaches he had so far were wonderful. We are currently working on him passing national level swim tests in Germany, which tend to be more rigorous. Not only do his coaches individualize his lesson plan, but they come up with routines for him to do when we are at other aquatic centers. I highly recommend this school, as they really care about their students’ swim skills.
