Many of our student’s parents are providing their children with opportunities that they did not have growing up. They watch their children swim and wish they had learned to swim. They can! Every Saturday morning (after the kids have left) many adults are taking advantage of Coach Rob's Pool School adult lessons. Enjoy the water as much as your children, learn to swim for fun and fitness! Call 901-386-1999 or Enroll online.

Coach Rob's Pool School parent/tot class prepares children for group lessons and is a great beginning to their swimming education. Parents are provided a chance to spend precious one-on-one moments with their child while teaching entry-level swim skills and safety.

Children who take the parent/tot class are more successful when entering the group lesson program. Parents who take the class are more aware of water safety issues and have the basic knowledge to prepare their child for success in more advanced classes.

The Lightning Swim Team offers child and parent an introduction to the sport of competitive swimming. The group size is expanded to 8 swimmers, which introduces the student to swim team characteristics. The instructor, who is referred to as “Coach,” will often be out of the water coaching from the side of the pool. At this level swimmers get a work out that offers fitness and fun in addition to skill development. Swimmers who are interested in competitive swimming may work toward making the transition to more advanced programs.
