We work with beginning swimmers who have never been
in a pool as well as more advanced swimmers who would like to refine their existing strokes. We can help the intermediate
and advanced swimmer of all ages improve their swimming technique, which will in turn, allow them to move more effectively
and efficiently in the water. Our caring and experienced instructors treat each student individually to make sure student receive
positive feedback and encouragement during their swimming and diving lessons. At Cougar and Soquel wim Schools we have created
a bright and positive learning environment for children and adults. We take swim lessons seriously - we've made our reputation
providing the finest swimming instruction in the valley. Our goal is to not only teach children and adults to swim but
help them develop confidence in the water. We believe that swimmers progress at their own pace, one small
success at a time. Our group lessons have a maximum ratio of four participants to one instructor .
the instructors are certified lifeguards and professionally trained as swim instructors. Our creative methods of instruction
help students become more comfortable in the water thus promoting overall confidence and self-esteem.
