The BIG Difference

Little Strokes Swim Academy was created to provide a fun environment for children and adults to learn to swim safely. The safest precautionary decision we can make right now is to prolong our break between sessions, and close temporarily until April 3rd. During this time, we will continue to perform a deep clean sanitation of our facility. Swim lessons, swim team, open swim and water aerobics will resume on April 4th with normal hours. We will be adding make-up lessons to accounts for the missed lessons, and extending our Spring Session into the planned break before Summer Session starts.

We realize the impact this will have on our staff and our swimmers, but it is of utmost importance to protect the community we live in. Little Strokes would like to take this time to thank all of the members of our community that are working hard to keep us safe and healthy. With that being said, our Winter and Spring sessions are our bread and butter - we live off of the income from those sessions for the rest of the year. Winter and Spring sessions have not been kind to us this year, with closures due to the air handler malfunction, the power outages, and now COVID-19. Our business interruption insurance does not cover pandemics. While big businesses will be able to take this hit and recover, small businesses like ours might not. We cannot offer online classes, we cannot move our business to takeout/delivery, we cannot implement social distancing in the pool, we cannot work from home, and we cannot provide instruction anywhere else.

Other businesses have found ways to still continue their income stream during this time, but we simply cannot. If you are able to make-up your missed lessons later on, or skip or delay taking a credit for any closed classes we would really appreciate it. We are trying our best to keep our business going during this unexpected closure, but it is becoming increasingly harder and harder. Being a valuable community member, Little Strokes has given back to that community over the past 15 years through silent auction donations, supporting our local schools & fun runs, sponsoring community activities such as Live From The Park, and donating time and money at community events. We now ask for your support as we have supported our community in the past.

From all of us at Little Strokes Swim Academy, we thank you for your trust and continued support. Stay safe, stay healthy, and we can't wait to see everyone back in the pool shortly!

For years the basic standard of teaching swimming answered only to the system designed and executed by the Red Cross. However, the top-tier swimming that is found at the competitive levels has evolved well beyond what this system has to offer its students. The cutting-edge fluid mechanics of the strokes that are so readily evident in the Olympic competitions are lost upon this system of teaching. The techniques that the Olympians use, however, are every bit as applicable and useful to a two-year old as they are to a top level athlete, and as a benefit, the more a child understands about how to move efficiently in the water the safer he or she is. Bearing these things in mind, the answer becomes clear: change the system of instruction to reflect the latest understanding of what is the most efficient way to swim.

Founded by former athletes and coaches, Little Strokes has effectively done this with a unique progression system developed from years of teaching, combined with Little Strokes open secret: the most experienced and qualified instructors in the business. Being able to boast teachers who are themselves; athletes, coaches, and teachers, means that the instructors not only have the tools to teach the science of swimming, but the fundamental understanding to realize its potential in every child.
