There is no need to “add to cart” above.
“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” —Albert Einstein
Eighty percent of drownings in America are by adults (CDC 2020). Half of adults in the U.S. are afraid in water (Gallup, 1998).
We have reported these errors from our platform for over 35 years. In the past 20 years, the drowning rate has not improved; a lifeguard shortage has appeared and deepened, and countless pools have closed for lack of support.
Have afraid adults quit your classes? Do you know what to teach them? Does their fear make you uneasy? Do they leave without confidence in deep water?
Learn to be successful every single time with every afraid adult. It’s simple. It’s fun, deep, and rewarding. Build your confidence and become a virtually invincible instructor of afraid adults.
The Masterclass is taught by Miracle Swimming School for Adults founder, Melon Dash.
MSSA opened in 1983 to work exclusively with adults—and exclusively with adults who are afraid in water. It has amassed a surprising body of knowledge from working with 6000 afraid adults that has only begun to change the aquatics industry. Preventable drowning can end sooner than it may have been thought.
Dash authored Conquer Your Fear of Water: A Revolutionary Way to Learn to Swim Without Ever Feeling Afraid. She’s spoken at numerous national and international meetings and appeared in the largest U.S. newspapers. She’s been Top Ten in 4 events as a masters swimmer. Her approach is profoundly different from traditional swimming instruction. It’s based on understanding and respect for afraid students and swim instructors.

“I’m so impressed by what Melon does and what she knows…. I’m also impressed by who is not listening to Melon. They have no idea what she knows. If they would just listen.” —John Spannuth, founder and CEO, US Water Fitness Association, former International Director of the Special Olympics and founding father of U.S. Masters Swimming

I wish I’d found y’all several months ago as I would’ve tried to get the classes done sooner.
I’ve been trying to find someone who specifically works with adults with a fear of deep water for a while, and local instructors never understand (I’ve tried working with several local swim instructors in several places).
I can do anything in shallow pool water just fine, it’s once I can’t touch the floor anymore that I begin to have issues. So they all just wanted me to try and perfect my strokes. —CJ Jan. 2023
