Description of Services: At Long Island Swim School children are taught their strokes correctly the first time. The small group environment makes learning to swim safe, easy, and fun. Our learning sequences are geared towards small logical progressions that allow the whole stroke to be developed. Children learn the safety skills they need by learning to swim correctly. We work on developing real swimming strokes, as opposed to developing a false sense of security derived by under water swimming and dog paddling that ultimately may interfere with learning real swimming. It is through this skill based quality instruction that Long Island Swim School students develop a joy for learning and a passion for swimming.  Long Island Swim School is open for children ages 2 - 10, beginners through intermediates.

Long Island Swim School is the teaching arm of Long Island Swimming.  Long Island Swimming also offers pre-competitive stroke clinics to develop the technique and endurance necessary to compete on a team.  Our competitive team, Long Island Aquatic Club (LIAC) is a nationally ranked program that competes at the local and national level.

Our 25 yard pool is 4 lanes wide. The pool is heated and kept at 85 degrees year round. The large viewing window allows our instructors to maintain a fun yet focused classroom environment as parents watch their children learn and develop new skills.

Our summer lesson program runs for eight weeks: from the last week in June through the 3rd week in August.   Classes are offered in sessions of 8 classes: Once a week for 8 weeks, Twice a week for 4 weeks, and Four times a week for 2 weeks.  Classes are offered from 9:00am - 1:00pm and from 3:30pm - 6:30pm.  Schedules and pricing can be found on our website roughly 1 - 2 months prior to the start of each session.

Long Island Swim School offers programs year round.  We run sessions in Winter (January - March), Spring (March - June), Summer (July and August), and Fall (2 sessions September/October and November/December).  Schedules and pricing can be found on our website roughly 1 - 2 months prior to the start of each session

Most beginning and intermediate swimmers participate in our regular group classes. This program ranges in ages from 3.5 to 10 and is further broken down into teaching groups based upon age and ability. Students in this group can expect to learn and accomplish a multitude of skills that are outlined in their skill sheets, all important steps towards successful swimming.
