Covina Swim Lessons

First and foremost, safety is number one when it comes to teaching our students.  But beyond our students staying safe, we want them to have fun while learning! Our “student first” approach allows us to establish a base comfort level for our swimmers in and around the water while progressing in accordance with the individual swimmers’ comfort and skill level.  This efficient and effective approach allows us to successfully guide each individual through all of the levels of skill progression. Blueray swim instructors use an enthusiastic and tailored approach for our private lesson swimmers of all ages and levels. Private Lessons are tailored to meet the needs of each individual swimmer.
