Swim Lessons For Kids In New York
There are so many reasons to consider swimming lessons for kids! Our swim lessons will teach your child water safety awareness, mental stamina, and confidence. In addition, swimming is an excellent form of exercise that can help to improve strength, endurance, cardiovascular health, and flexibility. For kids who are constantly on-the-go, swimming can provide a much-needed sense of calm and relaxation. Swimming can serve as a stress relief, a way to burn off extra energy, and a way to wind down after a long day at school.

With so many benefits, it's no wonder that 'swimming lessons for kids near me' is becoming one of the most popular searches online today.
Swimming lessons are one of the most effective ways to ensure your child's safety in the water. In the United States, an average of ten people drown every day. Of those, two are children of age 14 or younger. Drowning is fast and silent, only a few moments can change the course of your family's life forever. However, drowning is an entirely preventable tragedy, and proper education in water safety and swimming can make all of the difference in the world.

Why settle for a life of boring pool parties and family vacations spent nervously watching from the sidelines? You'll never regret the time and money spent on your child's safety and well-being! Enroll your child in swim lessons today– teach them to swim with confidence, and set them up for safe and fun summers for the rest of their lives!

Dan is consistently patient and professional. My daughter (9 yrs) has improved tremendously. I highly recommend Dan for swimming lessons for beginners or competitive swimming (as with my daughter).

I worked with Dan on multiple occasions to help improve my swim stroke and feel more confident in water. Dan immediately made me feel at ease. He would walk me through drills and then provide immediate and actionable feedback. Since working with Dan, I feel more comfortable in the water and have gone from being exhausted within 25m to completing my first Sprint triathlon (750m) in just a few months! Thank you, Dan!

My 10 years old son did know how to swim, because we could not find a school that fits our schedule. I found Danila on line and was not disappointed. We took 6 classes and my son can finally swim. He is very flexible with a schedule and easy to deal with and most important - he gets the job done. He delivers result in a short term. My son enjoyed his swim classes.

Had a great time under Dan's guide. He is super patient and a great guy. We had 3 people in our class and we were all able to progress far after just one session. I would 100% suggest him to anyone trying to enjoy all the fun things swimming bring along with it.

Hi there, my name is Nick and I was the one responsible for creating Dan's video content for YouTube. For the full two days I had spent with Dan, what stood out most to me was his amazing coaching style, level of skill, and dedication. This wasn't just another promo shoot With hired actors that read from a script but quite the opposite. The participants smiles were real and their excitement was genuine. It has been by far a pleasure and honor to be part of an experience such as this one! This isn't another paid review, but a complete and honest opinion. For guranteed results and an awesome experience, call Dan!

I originally found Dan via a Google search. I wanted to find adult swim classes, as most I saw were geared towards children. My intro class with him was great. He's a really friendly person and knows how to communicate well. I'm already able to do a few things on my own in the water after taking a handful of classes. I will continue to keep him as my swim instructor!

I really enjoyed my session in Danila's class. I had surgery my right arm and with his instruction I saw I had fuller range and my extension improved within a week. I feel more comfortable doing breast strokes and butterfly strokes. Highly recommend him for people with disabilities or physical injuries!

Dan is really great and knows what he's doing.. I had no idea how to swim and an adult learning to swim isn't easy.. he is patient and gives very clear instructions and after six classes I can say I can swim.. I highly recommend

Dan is incredibly patient and supportive. I literally could do nothing in a pool and I'm nearly 40 years old. Dan helped me overcome a lot of my fears and I have vastly improved. Highly recommended!
