Our unique and effective learn-to-swim program teaches children how to swim and how to be safe in and around the water. Children are curious, capable, and have a remarkable ability to overcome obstacles like pool fences. At Catch the Wave, we empower them with the skills to potentially save themselves if they find themselves in the water alone. Our swim program provides the safest and most effective survival swimming lessons in the area.
Our mission, “drowning is preventable” is the foundation of everything we do and is the driving force behind our swim program. As your child progresses through our swim program, we build on the previous skills mastered. Our levels begin with infant/toddler survival swimming, progressing to fundamental stroke and breathing techniques, advanced strokes, to our final competitive level. All our swim levels will have your child swimming with success — check out our videos here!
Catch the Wave believes supervision, pool fences, and pool alarms are necessary and must be part of a multi-layered approach to drowning prevention. However, the many drowning deaths per year are a somber reminder and testament to the fact that these traditional lines of defense are missing a key component: Catch the Wave’s core conviction is that the child is the most important part of a drowning prevention strategy and our program has been proven to be effective with documented survival stories. This is proof that children can save themselves! “Learning to swim is a gift we can give our children that will last a lifetime”.
