"Children in swim lessons performed significantly better than the typical population in every major milestone"

Griffith University Study, August 2013

Learn to Swim has been teaching swimming in Thunder Bay and surrounding areas since 1991.  We have taught thousands of swimmers how to have confidence, love and respect in the water.  In 2022, we developed our own Learn to Swim program encompassing parented, preschool, youth and adult lessons.  This program includes small progressions to help swimmers learn through gaining their own confidence in the water with the gentle direction of their instructor.  Our goal is to have swimmers learn how to be comfortable, water safe and have proper technique for strokes while enrolled in our program.  We believe in small class sizes so that we can work individually with each swimmer to help them develop a love for the water.

Recognizing Your Children’s Achievement

Learn to Swim focuses on progressions from level to level rather than a pass-or-fail system. Swimmers are constantly being evaluated according to their ability and progress through each level with gentle encouragement from their instructor. Parents can track their child’s progress on their account under their student’s evaluations.

At the end of each session, evaluations will be emailed to student’s families and a certificate will be presented to students celebrating their special achievements during the session.
