Swimming Lessons in Granite Bay, CA

Specializing in Adult, Baby and Kid Swimming Lessons in Granite Bay

Why do people need swimming lessons in order to learn to swim?  Isn’t swimming a life skill people simply develop as they spend time in and around the water?  The answer is yes and no.  Some students develop skills more innately than others, but learning to swim with a trained swimming instructor with the most up-to-date knowledge and techniques is the most effective method. If you want to learn to swim in Granite Bay, or if you want to be assured that your child is going to be able to stay safe in the pool, in the ocean, or in a lake, Steve Wallen Swim School firmly believes you need proper swimming lessons from a trained swim lesson instructor.

Swimming is a fun, healthy sport, but it requires a lot of patience and skill repetition in order to master the skill.  At an early age, infants generally take to the water with more confidence and natural ability. When a child is not introduced to the water at an early age, they generally develop more of an aversion to putting their face in the water. In many instances, this is due to the fact that as children get older, they become more aware of the water and its risks. We have found that babies who take swimming lessons and are introduced to the water at an early age can learn to swim and develop life-saving skills before these fears are developed.  In a life saving situation where a child or adult falls into water unexpectedly, the most dangerous and potentially fatal thing that can happen is for a panic reaction to occur.  This is another strong reason to take swimming lessons and get students comfortable and confident in the water. At Steve Wallen Swim School we feel that all people, old and young, should be prepared and capable to be safe in the water if something unexpected were to happen to himself or herself or another person.

Here at Steve Wallen Swim School, we treat swimming lessons as part fun adventure and part survival skill. We emphasize the joys of swimming and knowing how to swim, while also teaching respect for the water.

Swimming Lessons for Kids in Granite Bay

Kids’ swimming lessons are some of our most popular lessons here at Steve Wallen Swim School and it’s not hard to understand why.  Parents want their kids to be safe around water, and so do we!  At the same time, swimming is an extremely fun activity and we emphasize that aspect of it as well.  When taking swimming lessons at Steve Wallen Swim School, kids will learn to kick, blow bubbles, jump off the side, streamline, and float on their back in a fun, safe, and supportive environment.

At Steve Wallen Swim School, our indoor, heated swimming pool is open year-round. Our facility is ideal for infants, kids learning to swim, and even competitive swimmers on swim teams looking to stay in the water through the fall and winter. Year-round swimming lessons are very important for students to retain the skills developed throughout the summer and to continue to progress the following year. Through our 35 years of experience teaching children how to swim, we have seen, firsthand, how important it is to have consistency and skill repetition in the learning experience.  Our year-round swimming lessons allow the opportunity for one-on-one interaction with highly trained swim instructors in a safe and controlled environment.

For many adults, the biggest draw to the sport of swimming is the great health benefits it provides. Swimming raises your heart rate, making it excellent aerobic training.  It provides a lot of resistance, meaning that it also helps you build muscle. Best of all, swimming is easy on your joints, so even if you have arthritis or some other physical condition that makes it difficult for you to work out, you can swim and benefit from exercising your body without hurting yourself.  Here at Steve Wallen Swim School, we believe that everyone should take advantage of the great benefits of swimming. Because who doesn’t want to exercise and have fun at the same time?

Private Swimming Lessons in Granite Bay

Here at Steve Wallen Swim School we offer private, semi-private, and group swimming lessons, aimed at teaching infants, children, and adults the essential skills of swimming.  All of our classes focus on one-on-one interaction with instructors personally trained and supervised by Steve and his son Kaleb in order to maximize the full potential of every swimmer. Our private swimming lessons are offered for students who prefer more one-on-one attention with a trained instructor. Many students prefer to take private swimming lessons to get the most one-on-one instruction out of every class. Some students do better in a private lesson to begin, and then transition to a semi-private or group lesson once they get more comfortable in the water and begin to swim on their own.
