Clear Creek Swim School

The Clear Creek Swim School utilizes a comprehensive swim program that begins with developmentally appropriate techniques, which focus on helping children to be comfortable and happy in the water. Building upon solid foundations and simple steps, children will progress through our levels, learning to be safe swimmers. All children can learn to swim; it’s just a matter of when. We will never give up on a child, and while the water can be scary for many children, our goal is always to ensure that children have a love of the water. When children are happy and trust their instructor, skills learned can be accelerated tremendously.
