Training is our focus, we focus on you! Our goal is to insure you get the training you need to fully enjoy this amazing sport. We do this with small class sizes where we have the time to work with each student through the skills needed to be successful. Great training leads to safe and comfortable experiences.
Small class sizes are a foundation to our training programs. With access a private indoor pool, we can cater to your needs. Work nights or shifts…we can accommodate that. Need an extra pool session…we can accommodate that. Need to go at a slower pace…we can accommodate that. Our own facility means we have great flexibility.
