Child-Centered, yet Progressive System--Scientifically Designed with children in mind!

Imagine the fun your child would have learning in such a positive, child-centered environment (as seen below). While maintaining a progressive, goal-oriented approach, The Swim Lessons Company founder, Jim Reiser, developed The Swim Lessons Company curriculum with children in mind!

Professor Reiser holds a Masters Degree in Physical Education with a Motor Learning and Skill Acquisition emphasis. He has structured the courses so that children master each skill in a progression of very achievable, and age-appropriate steps. Skills are taught through a combination of visual, verbal, and physical cues in which Jim has tested and refined over his 25 years of teaching students and training swim instructors.

The following photos show just a sampling of our child-centered activities and illustrate what The Swim Lessons Company is all about!
