Kings Swim Academy

Child Jumping Into Swimming Pool


Our Authentic Approach Makes a Positive Impact

Our teachers are invested in your child’s success, and we have the student-teacher ratio to prove it. We are proud to have the lowest ratio of students to teachers in the Bay Area. Our lower-level classes have an average of just 4 students! (We max out at 4:1 for our upper-level classes.)

Teaching your child water safety and proper swim techniques is one of the best investments you can make in their future. Swim lessons are a confirmed way to teach your child new skills while encouraging physical activity.

Plus, swimming has developmental benefits for children. According to research from Australia’s University for Education and Research, children who swim score significantly better than non-swimmers on cognitive, language, and physical development. These are all really important developmental areas for their transition to school, so the earlier they learn to swim, the more prepared they’ll be!

What Parents Say

Love Love Love Love King’s Swim Academy, their staff, and their coaches. I have been very wish-washy with what class time works best for my 13 month old and her nap schedule; the staff and Coach Nicole have been so flexible, patient, understanding, and completed my requests quickly. I cannot say enough great things.

We LOVE LOVE Teacher Nicole, she is my style of coaching. I signed up for the parent & me class when S. was 12 months old. I wanted S. to be very comfortable in the water. Teacher Nicole is direct, kind, understanding, fun, silly, very knowledgeable, and a great leader. Nicole is more than a swim teacher, she will step in to manage any out of water front desk needs and I see she builds personal relationships with each of her students, some have been there for a few weeks and some have been going their whole toddler lives. It’s so important to me to have consistency and I appreciate a company who recognizes the gem they have. We love you Teacher Nicole!

We started with private swim lessons first. Teacher Moriah is great and not afraid of little girls who cry and shout. My 4-year old is getting better every class – the first time she put her head in the water, I was amazed, at first she was yelling at the top of her lungs but now..MUCH better.. no more screaming! I am very thankful for the mommies that recommended this swim school.

My daughter has been swimming with King’s Swim Academy since she was 5 months old! We started with parent and me class and then she switched to a big girl class. Swim class has help her to learn how to be safe in the pool and how to breathe the right way when she swims. She is 4 and half years old now and her teacher Cristian is really great! He is patient and fun! My daughter can’t wait to swim with him every week! Thank you!
