The Lenny Krayzelburg Swim Academy offers a learn to swim program for children of all ages. Started in 2005 by 4 time Olympic Gold Medalist Lenny Krayzelburg, "our core purpose is to teach and inspire children to be water safe". Since our inception we have taught thousands of kids' water safety and the importance of knowing how to swim. Using the SwimRight® Method, we utilize the swim-float-swim technique as our foundation, and focus on providing children with the knowledge of confidence and safety in and around the water. From these basic skills we take students from beginning stages of swimming all the way to learning all 4 strokes, freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.
- To Make Every Student Watersafe
- To provide an environment where every student learns and enjoys the benefits of swimming
- To help each student to increase self-confidence and independence through swimming
Our Learn-to-Swim program features seven levels in the SwimRight® Method that was developed by Lenny Krayzelburg and his staff. SwimRight® is a sophisticated, result driven approach that has evolved from other methods over a period of 40 years, and is a synthesis of the best philosophies and most advanced thinking in the field. This method is based on progressive learning techniques, so that within their first set of lessons, children greatly improve their chances to save themselves if they purposely or accidentally enter into any body of water. The SwimRight® curriculum uses the swim-float-swim technique as its foundation. All students are taught first to have an instinct to roll over onto their backs to breathe, which provides them with the ultimate tool for saving themselves in a time of need. Additionally, this approach provides the proper body positioning for learning the strokes. Step by step, building upon these core mechanics, students develop impeccable form in the four competitive strokes.
SRM Award System
The SwimRight® Method has seven levels of learning. Each level has a fun name incorporated so that each child belongs to their very own level in the academy. Whether a Splasher, a Floater, a Kicker, a Streamliner, a Freestyler, a Glider, or a Flyer each child in the program will collect along the way a color coded swim cap to help inspire them to move up to the next level. Additionally, each child in the program will receive their very own student progress book to help them keep track of all the skills they learn, their achievements, their accomplishments, and their goals that they have achieved throughout the program. As they venture through each level, they will also collect a sticker for each skill that they learn.
Survival Test Curriculum
Besides learning various skills in each level, our students experience something very unique to our program, the survival tests. In the survival tests we provide both the parents and the children with the confidence of knowing that their child can survive in a real-life situation. This is a very unique and valued part of the SwimRight® Method and our program. We are proud to say that we truly put our teachings to the test!
