“I am very happy with Bear Paddle Swim School! My son has been in class since August and I couldn’t be happier with how things have gone. My son is always hesitant to get in the water now that he is 3 and just gets in with the instructor, and every week someone is always helping and finding ways to get him in. They are always so helpful and willing to do whatever it takes to make sure my son is taken care of.”

“We have tried several places for my two daughters, but nothing compares to Bear Paddle. I literally cried once I saw my oldest swim completely on her own in a matter of weeks. There’s nothing like the feeling of confidence in your child’s ability to do this life saving skill, and that’s exactly what Bear Paddle gave me.”

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.
