Austin Swim Lessons

Private Swim Lessons

Happy Swimmers started teaching at-home swim lessons in 1991 in Los Angeles, with 22 clients. In 1993 we began serving Phoenix, and later San Jose, CA. In 2009 we opened in your delightful city of live music, Austin. We are the largest mobile swim lesson company serving the Austin Metro area.
The Austin region is home to many fine swim schools and city programs, so why do we offer swimming lessons in an area that already has so many swimming teachers? Some kids do well in boisterous social large group swim lessons, but many kids do not, and prefer the quiet, trusting setting of their own home pool and a dedicated, kind-hearted, patient instructor. Our Austin swimming lessons specialize in the latter style of teaching.

Swim Lesson Tip:

Goggles are ok for 3 year olds and up during lessons- IF they fit well and don’t leak much. We encourage parents to get quality goggles, like Speedo’s for children, not the $1.50 pair from the drugstore which leak incessantly. A decent, quality pair of goggles can be very useful in the early stages of learning swimming.

Austin Swim Lessons Staff

Ashlyn, Private Swim Instructor and Lifeguard for Hire, Food Lover

Spicewood

I am Water Safety Instructor certified, have been teaching swim lessons for about a year, and absolutely love helping others learn to swim! I swim competitively for the national group on my club team, my varsity high school team, and will be swimming Division 1 in college next year. This background helps me teach lessons to people of all ages and skill levels.

I have been lifeguarding for a year, and I have loved every minute of it. Because I enjoy the pool so much, it feels great to know that I am allowing others to have the same experience by creating a safe yet fun environment. When guarding, I am always on the lookout to prevent problems before they occur.

I serve the Austin communities of Austin proper, Leander, Cedar Park, Round Rock

Kennedy Teel, Lifeguard and Private Swim Instructor

I have 2 years Swim Instruction, Coaching, & lifeguard experience.

As a swim instructor, I teach kids to not only learn how to swim but to love swimming. I want them to be safe in the water and not depend on anyone else to help them. What I enjoy most about teaching anyone how to swim is seeing their progress and seeing them start to really love swimming and enjoy being in water. I love taking a kid who was originally scared and timid in the water and getting them to absolutely love swimming and love coming to swim lessons. Teaching swim lessons is a very fulfilling job and I love feeling like I have an impact on a child’s life. I still remember my swim instructor from when I first learned how to swim and I hope that the kids I teach will remember me and all I teach them. I have taught over 100 people ranging all different age groups, from as young as 6 months old to adults over 50. I was also a part time swim coach for a summer league team and a year-round team. I’m great with teaching freestyle and backstroke and moderate on teaching the harder strokes breaststroke and butterfly. I have also taught some more experienced kids how to do dives and flip turns. I have taken kids from fearing the water to swimming all the way across a 25-meter pool with no help.

Lauren Kelley, Private Swim Instructor and Lifeguard for Hire

Austin

Hey ya’ll! My name is Lauren and I am happy to serve you here at Happy Swimmers. Along with being a certified American Red Cross Lifeguard, I also am a swim instructor. I have taught swim lessons for two years at a public pool. The age group I have experience teaching with is toddler through school age. However I can assist any age group, kids are just so fun! Seeing kids progress is what makes my job fun. I love to see children grow in their skills and become comfortable in the water.

A fun fact about me– I know American Sign Language! Maybe I can teach you a few signs!

Hello everyone! My name is Lauren and I have been an American Cross Certified Lifeguard for 3 years. I began my lifeguarding experience at a public pool and progressed from there to working for an after school program. Now, I am here at Happy Swimmers.

I have been a lifeguard for 3 years.


My goal as a lifeguard is your child/children’s safety. I take a preventative approach and try to stop the hazard before it happens. However, real life doesn’t always work like that; rest assured I am trained to act and do the best I can to ensure patrons’ safety.

My favorite part of lifeguarding is seeing everyone have fun. Swimming and water activities are one of the best parts of summer.

A fun fact about me–I attend The University of Texas at Austin and am majoring in Speech Language Pathology with a minor in American Sign Language.

Manor

Teaching from ages 3 to 37, swim lessons have always been a true joy for me to teach! Over the years, I always adjust all of my lessons to each child, teen or adult. Every swim student learns differently, which has taught me several different approaches on how to instruct them in way that is both encouraging and easy to grasp. Whatever age, level, or fear you have of the water, I am a very patient Swim Instructor who sincerely cares about teaching anyone to become a better, confident swimmer! My favorite part about lessons is being able to see the improvement of my students, seeing them smile knowing that they have gained control over a vital skill that could one day save their life.

I first started lifeguarding when I was 16, over the years I have learned so many useful, lifesaving skills that are essential to not only my job, but to my community. I’ve lifeguarded at birthday parties, senior lock-ins, and other special events. What I love most about being a guard is I have the humbling opportunity to keep my friends and community safe!

I serve the Austin communities of Austin proper, Manor, and Pflugerville, among others.

My Swim Instructor Bio: Hello I’ve been actively teaching swim lessons for six years and enjoy this more than any other profession I’ve ever been involved in. There is nothing better than doing what you love for a living and being able to teach and share it with others. I get to teach a child; learn life long skills that last a life time, as well as safety and the joy of the water. I’m always amazed at how students learn so much in a short period of time. It also fun to watch them, “Strut Their Stuff” when they become confident at what they have learned. I started swimming at age 3 and have never enjoyed anything more than the water. I have been a competitive swimmer, PADI diver and Coast Guard Auxiliary member for many years.

I am also Manager of Swim Instructors in All Areas except California–AZ,TX, DC, and NY. Contact me through the website contact form, for anything swim instructor related once swim lessons have begun with your instructor.

Sydney Stolle, Private Swim Instructor & Lifeguard

Austin

Hi, I’m Sydney and I’m currently a sophomore at The University of Texas at Austin. Being by the water is my favorite place to be during the hot summers in Texas. I was a competitive swimmer for 14 years and still enjoy swimming laps in my free time.
For the past five summers, I have been a private and group swim instructor for ages 3 to 20. I have a wide spectrum of experience from children who are afraid to get in the water to competitive swimmers who need stroke instruction.
I enjoy building trust with the children I’ve taught and allowing them to progress into confident swimmers. I believe encouragement goes a long way and try to make the learning process as enjoyable as swimming is to me!

For the past five summers, I’ve lifeguarded at a city pool and for private events. When life guarding, I work to maintain a fun and safe environment for everyone inside and around the pool.
Because I am constantly scanning the pool and assessing the swimmers abilities, I saved lives each summer that I was working and prevented more accidents by enforcing the rules of the pool as well as general pool safety procedures. Last summer I was head life guard for our staff before retiring from my hometown pool. I take pride in my job and strive to continue to be a dependable life guard.

I serve the Austin communities of Austin, Pflugerville, Round Rock, among others.
