About the Swim School

We have made swimming our career and love what we do. We began our school 10 years ago during the summer months at our facility in Haydenville, Ma serving over 300 children each year.

We are very excited about teaching year round at our new location at the Clarke School for Hearing and Speech, where the water is heated for your comfort. Welcome to our family.
