Children’s Swimming Lessons in La Vista

Swimtastic Swim School has taught thousands of children how to love the water, and now it’s time for your kiddo to jump in! Swimming is an important life skill, and swimming lessons for children help kids stay safer in and around water. But why is water safety so important? Unfortunately, the number one cause of accidental death in children under four is drowning. It’s a frightening statistic, but the good news is that swimming lessons make a big difference

At Swimtastic La Vista, we make learning to swim fun and stress-free. Parents love our easy registration process and flexible, year-round lesson schedule. Young swimmers feel comfortable learning new skills in our warm water pools. And, kids and parents alike appreciate our small class sizes,  individual attention, and professional, loving team. 

Why does my child need swimming lessons?

Swimming is fun and empowering, but it’s also an essential life skill that will make your kids safer when they’re taking a bath, playing in the pool or at the beach, trying to make a splash at a backyard pool party, and anywhere else there’s water. 

Regardless of your swimmer’s goals, all children can benefit from learning how to be stronger and safer swimmers. Every Swimtastic La Vista teacher is an experienced swimmer with a passion for teaching, and they’ll work with your family to find the perfect class that meets your needs. Whether your goal is to help your kiddo develop basic water safety skills, compete at an elite level, or something in the middle, our swimming lessons for kids are the perfect solution.

Our Beginner level classes (Beginner 1 - 4) are for swimmers ages 3+ and are designed for students with no swim experience to those working towards independent swimming. Swimmers start with learning the basic safety skills (blowing bubbles through the mouth and nose, front and back float, as well as the beginning arm and kicking movements for freestyle) and progress to independent freestyle, develop backstroke technique, and continue to build on water safety skills. Our small group classes are scheduled weekly on a perpetual basis (same day and time each week). Up to 4 students per class. Students are grouped by skill level and similar age ranges.


In our Intermediate class levels (Intermediate 1-3), swimmers continue building on their safety skills while developing their freestyle side breathing and backstroke technique (Intermediate 1). Swimmers progress to learning breaststroke and ultimately accomplishing the butterfly stroke (Intermediate 3).


In our Advanced level classes (Advanced 1 - 2) swimmers focus on improving technique and gaining endurance and develop competition skills such as advanced safety skills, turns, and streamlining. Our small group classes are scheduled weekly on a perpetual basis (same day and time each week). Up to 4 students per class. Students are grouped by skill level and similar age ranges.



Private lessons are available for all skill levels and are a great option for those looking to progress or refine skills quickly. Classes are typically scheduled on a weekly, ongoing basis.



Semi-private lessons are available for all skill levels and are a great option for siblings or friends to be in the same class. Classes are typically scheduled on a weekly, ongoing basis. Swimmers are typically required to book with their semi-private class partner.

Infant & Toddler Swim Lessons

We offer infant swim and toddler lessons as early as 4 months of age to help build confidence and get your child comfortable in the water. In our ParentTot classes, parent-child combos bond with their kiddos while teaching the foundation of vital water safety skills like breath control, floating and kicking in a warm water environment. Our Toddler Transition class is focused on teaching water safety skills while transitioning the swimmer to learn independently of mom and dad.

Each 30 minute class will be customized around mastering the skills to become a better, stronger, and safer swimmer. 

Swim Camps & Clinics

Swim Camps & Clinics

Our swim camps are perfect for students looking for a shorter, more intensive program outside of their weekly lessons. Our camps are usually condensed into 1, 2 or 3 week sessions where swimmers join us multiple times a week to focus on improving swim skills at a faster pace. This is a perfect program to jump start your swimmers skills and fill your spring break and summer break with our favorite activity … swimming!

Swim Team Prep

Swim Team Prep

Ready for more? Our Swim Team Prep classes focus on improving endurance, strength and stroke technique for swimmers that want to refine their swimming skills. Classes include a set workout with an out of water coach whose primary goal is to mimic the experience one would have on a recreational swim team. Our Swim Team Prep program is for kids who are wanting to join a swim team in the future or who just love the sport of swimming and want to continue on as their form of exercise.
