Swimtastic is All About Relationships:
Do You Know What the Teachers Think?

When you think of Swimtastic what comes to mind? Do you just think of swim lessons or another stop in your busy week? From our customers' view, it is a neat place to take your kids for swim lessons. This is where your kids are going to learn to swim. This is the place where they are going to get over their fear of water. But, have you seen the other side of it? Do you know what the teachers think and how much they are really a part of your kids' lives, or even how much your kids have impacted us? Swimtastic is all about building healthy relationships - with the community, with the water and swimming, with one another, and among ourselves. Those relationships start with your kids but they are also a huge part of supporting the school's friendly, family atmosphere.

How Swimming Lessons Made Family Vacations That Much Better

How Swimming Lessons Made Family Vacations That Much Better

My son started swimming lessons when he was 6 months old. I remember being extremely excited about enrolling him in his first “activity,” but that all faded when he had no reaction to his swim class at all. He didn’t cry, but he definitely didn’t smile. He was unsure about the whole situation! His eyes were huge and he looked shocked during the whole first class. Like he wanted to say, “Mom, where are we and why is it so loud in here!” It took him a while to really enjoy swim lessons. He was a very quiet, calm, and shy baby.

Participating in Sports With A Disability

Participating in Sports With A Disability

These days, the negative health effects of inactivity are widespread. Obesity is on the rise, as are conditions like diabetes. Many people have what they think are good excuses: too much work, no gym nearby, and so on. Yet these people are perfectly able to go out and get active. That’s not the same when you have a disability. You have to stay active, but there are legitimate reasons to have trouble with doing that. It’s not like you can go jog a few miles when you’re in a wheelchair.

However, that is rapidly becoming just another excuse. People with disabilities are finding more and more ways to participate in sports and activities. Not only is this helping their physical health, it’s helping break down barriers.

Thank You For Participating in the
'I Swim Because' Contest!

Our goal is to teach young children to swim in a positive, safe, and loving environment. We recognize that each child is an individual with different emotional and developmental abilities and we cater each lesson to those needs.

In addition to teaching the skill of swimming, we also strive to develop each child's self-esteem, confidence, and love for the water. Because creating a happy swimmer is a gift that lasts a lifetime.

We also understand that swimming develops into a true passion for many. This is why we wanted to know what inspires you to swim!

THANK YOU to everyone that participated in the 'I Swim Because' contest! We had an amazing turnout and learned why many of our peers and students swim. We saw some truly inspiring individuals sharing why swimming is close to their heart.

It’s a Mom Thing! #momlife

It’s a Mom Thing! #momlife

I am a mother of three kids, Ingrid 10 years old, Sawyer 3 years old, and Crew 16 months old, and I am tired. Even when I get sleep, I am still tired. I am down right exhausted. No one told me when I was going to be a mom I was going to be this tired. I knew about the sleep deprivation when they were babies but now all my kids sleep through the night, maybe get up early, but I am still tired.

Easton’s Swimming Adventures: Week #5

Easton’s Swimming Adventures: Week #5 

Look mom, no goggles!! That was the highlight of our latest swimming adventure with Miss Lisa. Before we started lessons I thought that giving my child goggles would get him excited about the whole process, but in hindsight, I believe I have imposed a slight crutch for him to use. Because his swim class is small, REALLY small, only-2-other-kids kind of small, there isn’t even a need for them because of the splashing and rough water…the reason during our previous lessons…is pretty non-existent. Because he’s not fighting the water, he’s more likely to actually put his whole face in…
which by the way we are also doing now! The top of the head is still a work in progress.

Happy Birthday Missy Franklin!

Happy Birthday Missy Franklin!

Is it a secret we love Missy Franklin? Oh of course not. I've caught my colleagues reading her book to the office fish inspiring them to be stronger swimmers. The swimming champion is certainly inspiration and motivation here at headquarters - equally taken aback by the greatness of her accomplishments and the humility with which she speaks of them. While you may have known her from her success in London and Rio, here are five facts about five-time Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin you may not know!

Easton’s Swimming Adventures: Week #3

Easton’s Swimming Adventures: Week #3

Week 3 started with so much excitement on the car ride over that I felt like I needed to run every red light just to get Easton there before it faded. Of course, his excitement was in part due to his assumption, (an incorrect one), that he was going to get another water gun from the Swimtastic “store” like he did after his first lesson. I did have to dash his hopes on that but did offer up a package of cookies from their snack area as a consolation prize. Surprisingly, he was cool with it.
