Why WETS?

We Teach Swimming (WETS) is a private swim school for children that offers learn to swim programs using achievable progressions based on the Red Cross Swim Levels. From water safety and core skills all the way through to developing endurance and strong strokes before entering our pre-swim club or synchronized swim program. We teach swimming from cradle to career including the Life Saving skills and Instructor Program. All WETS instructors are Certified Red Cross Water Safety Instructors.

With only 4 students per class, our semi private lessons feature small class sizes providing more individual attention so that your child gets personalized instruction in sync with their personality and strengths to help them learn how to float, swim and play safely when they are in, on or around water.

We enrich every student’s learn to swim experience by engaging their sense of sight, sound and touch to tune into their comfort and challenge zones to help them build confidence and overcome any fears about their abilities in the water.

The WETS teaching method is not a linear program based on levels.It is a results-driven and progressive approach that’s the sum total of over 35 years of combining best practices + innovative thinking with the Red Cross Swim levels + Water Safety curriculum at its core. It’s a proven formula for making learning to swim correctly a fun and rewarding experience for children and an effective way for parents to ensure their children are water safe for life.

A year round approach to swimming is encouraged. Many students come in once or twice a week to maintain consistent, relaxed exposure to the water versus trying to learn a lifelong skill in just a few weeks each year. A swimmer of any ability level can enter our program at any time of year. We believe children learn best in a fun, warm and positive environment where their efforts, accomplishments and concentration are both rewarded and celebrated. We challenge and inspire every swimmer to consistently advance their aquatic abilities by keeping them engaged and excited about their progress and achievements in the water.
