Luey’s Swim School offers small group swim lessons from a home pool in Palo Alto. The pool is enclosed and is heated to 90°F, so it's comfortable year round.

Swimmers have lessons once a week that last half an hour. There are four swimmers of similar age and ability per half-hour class.  Classes run from 9 am until 6 pm.

Swim sessions during the school year are divided into three semesters of approximately 10 weeks each. Teacher Louise also offers a summer clinic during the summer months.

Beginner swimmers learn to float and become confident in the water.  Swimmers move on to learning safety skills and stroke techniques. Once swimmers become proficient in the four strokes they are ready to “graduate” from Luey’s Swim School into swim teams and endurance programs in larger pools.

As with any sport, parents are encouraged to provide opportunities for their children to swim outside of their lesson time. Children who spend more time in a pool, whether its swim or play, develop confidence and progress at a quicker rate.
