Your Premier Colorado Springs Swim School!

 Every child should learn to be safe and comfortable in and around water. We use the gentle touch technique and feature private one-on-one lessons that emphasize repetition of basic water safety skills under the guidance of our experienced instructors. Students at our school develop and progress through the skills necessary for a lifetime of aquatic enjoyment!


Today's Available Appointment Times and Announcements!

Private Lessons

We offer private lessons to swimmers of all ages and abilities.  With one instructor and one child, distractions are minimized and the learning environment is very focused.  Our 30-minute private lessons have been designed to provide our students with personalized attention at an optimal level within a structured and fast-paced environment in order to achieve accelerated results.  Depending on their age and skill level, students will learn the basics from blowing bubbles and putting their faces in the water all the way through stroke refinement.

Semi-Private Lessons

We are pleased to offer semi-private, or “Backpack” lessons at our swim school.   Semi-private lessons give our students of any age and/or ability the opportunity to interact with another student of similar age and ability while still receiving personal attention.  In order to eliminate the “dead time” that often occurs in group lessons, our instructors have been trained to incorporate and engage both swimmers during lesson time, with frequent switch outs and balanced time for each swimmer.  With our younger students, the instructor will place one student on his/her back as a turn-taking technique in order to maintain the attention and involvement of both students throughout the lesson.

 

Group Lessons

Here at Donna’s Dolphins, we feel our results in private lessons greatly exceed our progression in our 3:1 group lessons. However, we are offering our 3:1 group lessons for Sea Otters and Dolphins for the summer of 2014.

In addition, we offer stroke clinics, for swimmers strengthening and refining their skills. We feel these endurance-based group lessons are highly beneficial in turning your good swimmer into a great one.

Baby Dolphin Classes

Our Baby Dolphin swim classes provide a fun and relaxed environment for infants and toddlers to become comfortable in the water with a parent and instructor while learning invaluable water safety skills that will become the foundation of their swimming experience.

A specially trained instructor will actively guide structured songs and activities in order to facilitate the learning process of our foundational skills between you and your child.  The instructor will also teach you the techniques that are vital for your child to be water safe, and will give the reasoning behind each skill that we teach.  We offer Baby Dolphin classes several times each week, please call 487-SWIM (7946) if you would like to sign up!
