Every Child Should
Learn to Swim.
Studies have shown that when children are born, they actually have the ability to swim to some degree, however, they lose this ability, as they grow older. It is imperative to get them in the water as soon as possible as a means to stave off the deterioration of this natural swimming ability.
Water safety is critical here in the greater Los Angeles area where pools are abundant and the Pacific Ocean is it’s border. Not only does being able to swim allow children to be safer in the water, but it also gives them a small measure of independence, which may turn into a lifelong, healthy passion.
Our swim lessons are designed to maximize the ability of the child and to help him/her explore their full potential. Children can drown in just 3 inches of water, which is why it is imperative they understand the dangers of the water and learn how to overcome them.
Sailfish Swim School was founded in 2015 as an alternative to the rigid, inflexible methods of the current swim school mentality. Although we adhere to teaching specific swim skills that must be learned, our lesson programs are flexible and custom tailored to the needs of the child. There are four differentiating factors here at Sailfish Swim School: 1) We incorporate songs into each lesson to keep the younger students engaged, 2) Each student is granted a certain measure of control over the lesson flow, which allows for flexibility and developmental growth. For example: should they dislike a particular part of the lesson, they may choose to do that part last. 3) Unbinding time constraints on learning each skill during each lesson. For example: Some students need more time learning the proper kicking technique, while others may need more time with jumping, or arm stroke. And 4) Sailfish Swim School is a traveling swim school. With more and more time constraints on parents, traveling and lesson time just isn’t available. Bringing the instructors to the student’s homes/suitable pool locations allows for comfortable familiarity for the students.
Sailfish Swim School is eager to change the swim lesson dynamic as we strive to embody our mission to help every individual be safer in the water.

John is amazing with children. He was able to get my 2 year old to trust him so quickly. His way of teaching with a mix of fun songs and a determined attitude is perfect with kids(and parents). John is not only a coach but a friend. We are so grateful he has given our son the gift of safety and love of swimming.
