Help a Mom: Great swim lessons

Posted June 14, 2010

I got an email last week from a mom who is looking for swim lessons for her three-year-old in the Clayton area. It looks like Smithfield Recreation and Aquatics Center offers lessons. And she was going to look into that.

But I also figured that lots of moms are in her boat ... looking for swim lessons for their kids and not sure where to go.

Well, you can try our public pool database. You should be able to find swim lessons at all those pools. But there also are lots of private pools and groups that offer swim lessons as well.

If you have a favorite swim program at a public pool or a private one where the public is welcome to sign up for lessons, please share in the comments and help a mom out.

(And for what it's worth, my five-year-old has taken lessons at Pullen Aquatic Center in Raleigh for the last year and I've been very happy with them.)

    The best swim lessons I have ever seen or had my kids be a part of are with the Triangle Swim School at the Triangle Aquatic Center in Cary. Coach Matt, Lizzy, Drew, etc. are all awesome. I have referred numeous kids to them and ALL THE PARENTS are amazed at the difference with this place than any other place (including the local "Y"s). They can get kids from sreaming about going in the water, to loving it very quickly. They also teach ALL kids the PROPER TECHNIQUE, which is awesome because it is very hard to "undo" improper strokes! Give them a try and I am confident you too will be amazed.
