LA City Side Swim Lessons

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
— Lao Tzu  (unbeknownst to him, setting the feeling tone for the first Happy Swimmers.   Thanks LT !)

We started teaching Los Angeles swim lessons privately back in 1991, with 22 clients. Over the years, our client list has grown to over 400 annually, with thousands of children now happily swimming. This is because of our highly skilled teachers and our philosophy of kindness in the way we teach.

Swim Lesson Tip:

For a child, learning to swim can feel like an adult learning to skydive. The rules of gravity are suspended, and this foreign place can be a fearful experience for new learners. Some parents don’t realize this and unknowingly look to throw the child in the water, or force a child into learning sooner than they are ready. Swimming is learning to balance oneself in a new environment. A good instructor will gently bring the child outside his comfort zone each lesson, but not so far as to invoke fear. The gradual path is most often the most successful in this arena.
