“We did lessons last year with urSwim and just signed up for another summer! From the owner to the office staff to the lifeguards everyone is so easy and a pleasure to deal with! Prior to the lessons my son- age 4 had such a fear of the water-we panicked as my parents just bought a house with an in ground pool..after the second lesson my son was begging to go in and was so excited to show everyone his progress! He is counting down the days until we can open the pool and his lessons can start!”

“I can't say enough wonderful things about urSwim's programs. The instructors are incredibly thorough and knowledgeable, not only about swim instruction, but with teaching children in various age groups. My older child progressed more in his first few classes than he did after an entire summer of swim lessons at summer camp and my toddler was taught water safety while immersed in "play". The scheduling is flexible, they have an easy to navigate portal, and they've provided me with so much comfort regarding my children's water safety preparedness.”

“I have used UR Swim many times over the years and they never disappoint. When my daughters were young we used them for swim lessons at our house and in recent years we've used their lifeguard services. It's always been great! At our last party, Lexi was particularly impressive, completely taking control of a group of rowdy 9 year olds. All of the parents commented on how great she was.”

“This was an excellent class. Teacher was extremely knowledgeable and informative. Made sure all parties were gaining and applying the proper knowledge and skills. Would highly recommend this for a recertification or new certification.”

urSwim went above and beyond in ensuring a safe and successful swim season. From their initial site visit to what would be the most successful way to seperate groups to ensure every child gets the most out of their swim instruction, every detail was accounted for. The Aquatics Directors staffed for our camp were very communicative and great at managing a larger staff to ensure that every swim group had an appropriate swim instructor. The entire experience with urSwim was so easy and convenient as it allowed us to focus on other aspects of the camp, feeling confident that all things aquatics was taken care of thanks to urSwim.
