Northshore Swim is a year-round swim instruction facility that is family owned and operated. We have been proudly serving the Northshore since 1998 and have taught hundreds of swimmers how to swim in the community.
Welcome to Northshore Swim!
Northshore Swim is a swimming facility dedicated to teaching individuals the fundamentals of swimming and water safety while instilling a love for the sport. Our goal is to instruct and develop the basic swimming skills necessary for our swimmers to become confident and safe in the water. We work with infants, children and adults of all ages, including special-need learners. We welcome swimmers with Disney-themed music and have the most child friendly, nurturing instructors on the northshore. Our swim program focuses on educating swimmers in the fundamental strokes, breathing techniques, coordination, and floating basics in a fun, child-centered environment that children will want to be a part of. Instruction, at all times, is focused on the swimmer's enjoyment. For children and adults ages 6 months and up, Northshore Swim is the ideal place to have you swimming like a fish!
Our mission is to teach swimmers the basic skills in order for them to become lifelong swimmers who enjoy swimming for the rest of their lives. Our philosophy can be summed up by three main tenets: encourage a lifelong love of swimming, focus on water safety and respect for the water, and promote the numerous benefits that come from the skill. We are passionate about swimming, and our enthusiasm is contagious. We want swim lessons to be one of your child's fondest memories, and we strive to create a nurturing, fun environment where each child is taught on an individual basis according to their own emotional, cognitive, and development abilities. We also prioritize safety throughout every lesson. We strive to develop in each child a healthy respect and love for the water.
According to World Health Organization statistics, drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional/accidental death in children aged 1-14 years. We believe education is the best form of prevention, and we design our program with safety as the highest priority. In addition, we strive to instill a love for swimming because we feel swimming is a fun and challenging way to help children stay fit, it has relatively few injuries overall, and it is easier for children with special needs than other activities. Swimming provides cardiovascular benefits that promote heart and lung health, it improves stamina, flexibility, strength, balance, and posture, and is a solid mental exercise that improves a child's emotional well-being and increases confidence. The benefits of swim lessons are endless, and we strive to help each swimmer get the most out of the experience during the lessons and for many years to come.
Northshore Swim Rules
In order to ensure the safety and comfort of all swimmers and guarantee everyone gets the most from their experience with us, we ask that all swimmers abide by the following rules:
- No gum chewing in the pool
- Please apply sunscreen at least 30 minutes in advance (This is the ideal way to ensure the effectiveness of the sun UV protection for the swimmer, and it helps keep the pool sparkling for pictures)
- No pets please, except seeing eye dogs
- All students not fully potty-trained need to wear a swim diaper
- No running or horseplay on the pool deck
- Caution and hesitancy that a child may initially show at swimming lessons is no different than is expected or experienced in any new situation. The tears or clinging can be overcome by a friendly instructor and by loving parental enthusiasm. We strongly encourage positivity in all areas during swim lessons.
- Learning to swim is a gradual, on-going process based on practice, developmental levels, reinforcement, body composition, and physics. Like any other safety concern, swimming needs to be re-taught and reinforced continually. Only swim skills that are remembered can save a life. Consider enrolling your child in year round swim for optimal safety results.
