One Student's Description

I consider myself a good student. I listen, I focus, I try my best. But no matter how many swim classes I took (countless over the years), the fear of water stayed with me. I dreaded those classes – the cold water, the mechanical instruction, the anxiety of ‘not getting it’.

From the first few minutes of Miracle Swimming’s Beginning class, I knew it was different. The steps of their method are so minutely incremental, it didn’t feel like they were teaching. It felt like talking to a good friend in a safe and warm pool, and before you know it, you’re making progress. You ‘get it’ right away that once you feel safe in water, you’ll naturally want to explore more of the water. Just that realization alone was worth more than all those other classes put together.

To say that this was money well-spent is an understatement, as the experience has been invaluable to me. —PS, above

Upcoming courses

Overcome 40-50% of fear of water at home. No pool needed. No joke.

During Covid-19, learn on land. Prove it in the pool later.

Pool Course
Resumes in October, 2020 with social distancing.
Start at the beginning with essentials you won’t find elsewhere. They’re not physical skills. Then  cover all the shallow water skills you need, with an approach that has never failed to keep students happy. Begin to be at ease in the deep by starting to rely on yourself for your safety, not on the side or the bottom. (24 hours)

Each student has a 6 foot by 6 foot space to learn in with the same size square of empty space on 3 sides and the wall on the 4th. Foam noodles divide the spaces. There is ample space to propel yourself.
