Hear From Happy Families

“I love Bear Paddle. A year ago my son was the kid sitting on the side of the pool screaming and crying because he was so afraid of the pool. Since going to Bear Paddle, not only has he has become much more comfortable with the pool, he is actually swimming. He knows how to freestyle, do the butterfly, breaststroke, and is currently working on his back stroke.”

“My son loves coming to swim lessons every week. The small class sizes and individualized attention is great for him and his learning style. I am so happy with the progress he’s made so far. I am so happy with my decision to enroll him at Bear Paddle Orland Park!”

“Our sons started Bear Paddle for spring break swim camp and they continued lessons. They love going to class every week, and their progress is unbelievable. They do everything they can to accommodate same day/time lessons for multiple children at different levels. The teachers and staff are encouraging and helpful. Highly recommended!”

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.
