Who Benefits from an Online Swimming Course?

Online swimming courses are particularly useful for:

  • Preschool and early elementary age children (ages 3 to 8)
  • Swim instruction beginners
  • Small children with separation anxiety or limited communication skills
  • Anxious learners with an aversion to water, particularly following a traumatic incident
  • People precluded from traditional swim school lessons due to inconvenient locations or lesson times

"I would recommend the Preschool-Elementary Swimming online tutorial program for beginner swimmers as well as anyone who is thinking about teaching beginning swimming."

Head Coach of Cornell Swimming and Diving,
