Swim Lessons

We know your child doesn’t play in the pool with lap swim while on vacation. So why learn how to only do laps?


COMPASS aquatics is more than lap swim.

This program is unique because we teach how to swim using play. We don’t find many young kiddos going to a pool and swimming laps for fun. Our lessons teach how to play, swim, and be in the pool safely while including direct skills, instruction, and becoming a stronger and more confident swimmer through every class.

Intermediate & Advanced Levels

"Hi y'all! I have been swimming since the age of 4, and have been in swim club and competitively for the past 9 years of my life. I absolutely love working with children, and love to be able to pass on the gifts of swimming and water affinity. I'm both an avid outdoors, and indoors person, the beach is always my happy place, but nowhere is like home to me. Beyond Compass, I have some light experience with coaching and training young swimmers, and love to create a competitive fire underneath all of my students, trying to push them to be the best swimmers possible!"



In-Home Swim Instructor

"I just graduated from Stevens Institute of Technology with a Bachelor's in Biomedical Engineering and will be continuing there next Fall to complete my Master's degree. I have played sports my whole life and played Lacrosse in college. I also like to draw, read, and swim! I'm looking forward to meeting your kiddos in the pool to have fun and learn to swim."

Child & Family Approved

I couldn't believe how much time my child spent sitting on the edge of the pool with other another program. With COMPASS Aquatics my child is in the pool swimming the whole time.
