Experience The Bear Paddle Difference

“I started my daughter here at 6 months old. It’s amazing how much she can actually do already as far as swimming. She kicks and paddles with flotation. She loves her time here every week. They actually teach children how to swim and techniques that will come in handy if they were to fall into a pool (swim toward wall, flip to breathe etc.). The staff is great! They are always friendly and ready to answer any questions you have. Highly recommended, the best swim lessons in Florence!”

“After a week of spring swim camp, we went from being afraid to let go of our 3 year olds hand near the pool to watching him get in and out safely and swim through the water with almost no support. The staff are professional and earned our son’s trust. Plus, the place is always immaculately clean. I don’t know how they do that with so many kids going through!”

“My three-year-old has been going to Bear Paddle classes for almost two months, and we absolutely love it! When we began, he was afraid to get in the water, and he cried the whole first lesson. The teachers have been very patient and excellent in working with him. He quickly got over his fear and now loves class. We’re seeing rapid progress in his comfort and swim abilities. Excellent interactions with all staff there, and nice, clean facility.”

Swimming Lesson FAQs

Yes, we ensure that you and your child are safe during each session. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued guidance that it’s safe to swim since the virus cannot spread properly in chlorinated pool water. We also enforce strict physical distancing measures and health and safety protocols to follow CDC’s health standards.

Our maintenance and cleaning team disinfects each location regularly, including but not limited to door handles, tables, floors, benches, sinks, fixtures, toilets, and diaper changing stations. Our caretakers also clean the shower stalls and changing stations after each use. We also provide hand sanitizers for all of our students. Moreover, the chlorinated water and ultraviolet filtration system offer complete protection for our customers and employees.

We have a new scheduling system to ensure that less than 50 people are inside the Bear Paddle location at any given time.

Bear Paddle tests the water chemistry of pools before, during, and after every 30-minute shift. This way, we can guarantee compliance with CDC’s guidelines. In terms of disinfection, we use chlorinated water and ultraviolet light to kill 99.99% of disease-causing bacteria and viruses. Moreover, most of our pools utilize Defender Filtration systems powered with Diatomaceous Earth (DE) media. Due to these filters, we can remove particles up to one micron. For better understanding, red blood cells are approximately 5 microns, so our disinfection systems provide a safe swimming experience for you and your family.

The student-teacher ratio is 3:1 or 6:1 depending on each student’s age and proficiency level.

We try our best to accommodate families with multiple enrollees. Depending on their age and skill level, they’ll either receive a different swim buddy or get paired if our coach deems it acceptable.

We accept students as young as six-months-old. At this stage, they’ll be introduced to the Teddy Paddle and Teddy Float techniques with the help of a flotation device. If you have already decided to enroll in our swim school, you can register by visiting BearPaddle.com, calling our customer service hotline, or going to one of our locations.
