Before They Were Winners, They Were Beginners

Posted on Mar 22, 2018 4:44:20 PM by Dorian Capers in Kids Swimming Lessons, in olympian, in swimming goals, in Behind the Scenes

Did you know that when he was young, Michael Phelps was afraid of having water on his face? The old saying, "You have to start somewhere", has always rung true. Sometimes it is easy to forget that every amazing athlete, no matter their current prestige, started as a beginner and understanding how preliminary steps, lessons, and small time races can build to the world record shattering results is its own challenge for wouldbe superstars.  If you are just starting out, when the going gets tough, you might just need some inspiration. Here are 3 videos from USA Swimming and The Olympic Channel that tug the heartstrings and remind us that behind every champion is a story of a kid with a dream.

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

Posted on Jun 8, 2017 10:15:00 AM by Dorian Capers in Kids Swimming Lessons, in Swimtastic, in best swim instruction, in best swim school, in I Swim Because, in Swimming Competition, in passion for swimming, in Swimming Community, in Missy Franklin

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.

Easton’s Swimming Adventures: Week #3

Posted on Apr 12, 2017 12:49:49 PM by Renee Howe in Parenting Experiences, in Swimtastic, in Swimming lessons, in Swimming, in Water, in mom, in Kids Swimming Lessons, in swimming goals

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.

To That One College Job – It's Not Just Teaching Kids to Swim

To That One College Job – It's Not Just Teaching Kids to Swim

Two years…I knew it that day sitting in my interview for another part-time position. In my early college years, I felt like I was collecting part-time jobs. Being in school, I knew the jobs were just temporary, so two years seemed like long enough to enjoy a fun one before entering the real world. Two years seemed like it would be long enough to teach kids how to swim at Swimtastic Swim School.

Teaching Swimming Lessons; What My Students Have Taught Me

Posted on Sep 16, 2016 8:17:46 AM by Ashley Adams in Swimming, in Kids Swimming Lessons, in Swimming instructors, in Fun, in learning to swim, in teachers

Hi! My name is Ashley and I have been working as an instructor at Swimtastic (Franklin location) for two years and have developed close relationships with each of the students that I teach. I teach children from the age of two years old to fourteen years old. There are many life lessons I have learned from them, and though I have seen many come and go, no matter what is going on in my life at that moment, I look up to these children. Here are just a few life lessons my students have taught me:
