What would you like to share with the community?

At Steve Wallen Swim School, we firmly believe that students are born with an innate ability to swim; therefore, we highly recommend introducing babies to the water at an early age. From our experience, we find that students who start baby swim lessons at a young age tend to take to the water quicker as well as learn to enjoy and respect the water more.

Tell us a funny story about your business?

At SWSS, our focus is all about the customer experience. From our ribbon program and tootsie rolls to help motivate students to our top-notch customer service. Not only are we teaching swim lessons and the life skill of swimming, we also create a fun, positive atmosphere where our customers look forward to visiting. :-). As many of our students know, the water at SWSS is magic! Mr. Steve can actually be seen at times during lessons adding more “magic water” to the pool to help motivate students.
