The program at Swimmerman is the best I have ever seen. It is gentle and relaxed, and it totally works! My 3 year old grandson was timid at his first lesson. Now he can't wait to get to the pool and learn new things. I am so impressed.

Swimmerman "IS" the best swim school in the USA!"Mama, I want to swim" was what my 5 year old son said and I immediately thought of Swimmerman. The staff at Swimmerman are: leaders and experts in the field of swimming. They use state of the art techniques and theories that inform and guide them in best practices. Swimmerman is helping my son dig deep within himself, and reach his own personal best potential. They are: observant, perceptive, highly professional, kind, gentle, empathic, personable, patient, passionate, enthusiastic, responsible and honest. They are emotionally available and understand that swimming is mainly a psychological sport, and demonstrate a keen understanding behind the purpose of swimming. My son's safety is paramount and I feel safe with Swimmerman. Everywhere I go I sing the accolades of Swimmerman. My son looks forward to his weekly lessons. Swimmerman, I love you!

I'm an adult who is finally learning how to swim. Swimmerman has helped me accomplish more than what I could have imagined. I can say it's truly a life changing experience and urge any person, child or adult to go here. Great job by the staff there!

I'm a 32 year old who has finally bitten the bullet and decided to learn how to swim. The staff has been nothing but patient, friendly, kind and knowledgeable in the time that I've been taking lessons there. Melina is amazing and I highly recommend her and the rest of her staff to anyone who wants to learn how to swim, whether child or adult.

From the very first day that my little ones, ages 4 & 8 began their lessons at Swimmerman, I was very impressed. They were able to figure out the personalities of my children so that they could teach them according to their individual learning style. I highly recommend it.

My 2 pre-schoolers have had 3 lessons at Swimmerman Swim School so far. At their first lesson they were hesitant to put their faces in the water. By the 3rd, they were gliding and floating under water on their own. Melina and Manfred's calm, nurturing teaching styles have helped my children be comfortable in the water, giving them a strong foundation on which to build their swimming skills. The warm friendly atmosphere, efficient scheduling process, enclosed heated pool, and beautiful garden setting all combine to make swimming lessons at Swimmerman Swim School a wonderful experience.

My 9 year old non-verbal son with autism has loved the water for years but simply could not focus to learn how to swim. At his FIRST lesson, within 20 minutes of being in the water with Manfred, my son put his face in the water and blew bubbles! I was floored! Then by the end of the lesson, he had goggles on and kept them on!! I was absolutely amazed!! Now he refers to his upcoming lesson throughout week and puts on his own goggles before he gets in the pool. Anyone who has or knows someone who has a special needs child understands how major and gratifying something like this is. I don't know what they do to connect with the kids but they are truly blessed with a gift. I would urge anyone wanting swimming lessons to go to Swimmerman - you'll be happy you did.

I can't rant or rave enough about how wonderful the staff, their operation and their teaching skills are. They remind me of magicians who are working some magic in the water to educate and encourage safe but fun swimming practices that will last forever! They are awesome!

Ms. Melina is an excellent teacher. She's very patient, kind, and encouraging. I feel like I'm well on my way to learning how to swim after just one lesson.
