Dream Big Swim Academy is a unique swim program that uses innovative and fun techniques to teach children and adults to swim. Our goal is to teach the skills necessary for survival and confidence in the water using methods designed for each individual student. This is not a typical “swim lesson.” Dream Big Swim Academy is a developmental program that encompasses emotional and physical growth along with all aspects of swimming and water safety. Our teaching approach promotes growth out of the pool as well. Lessons run all year for the maximum benefit.
We have two types of classes: Private lessons (18 months and older) or Little Dreamers Infant classes. Dream Big Swim Academy does not provide group lessons, except for the Little Dreamers Infant classes. Students cannot share a lesson time. Children learn faster and feel more comfortable one-on-one with an instructor. In addition, the instructor can focus on only one child at a time, thus providing the best teaching and most importantly, safety.
We are a minimal flotation style school. While you may see other organizations/individuals teaching with backpacks or other flotation devices, we try to limit the use of these objects as it promotes a false sense of security and also inhibits natural development. Dream Big Swim Academy focuses on breath control, balance and buoyancy and then movement to develop confident, strong and independent swimmers.
Dream Big Swim Academy the ONLY nationally accredited swim school in the tri-state area. Don’t be fooled by others who “teach” swimming lessons!! All of our instructors go through a minimum of 30 hours of training and are always overseen by the head instructor. Additionally, we are the ONLY swimming instruction with Infant and Toddler certification. (We are accredited by the United States Swim School Association and also a member of the National Prevention of Drowning Alliance and Safer3 program.)
Dream Big Swim Academy rents the pool at Millsop Community Center in Weirton, WV. We are not affiliated with the facility and run independently. We rent the pool and limit our use to the pool area only. All questions about the facility, pool hours or availability, or other programs should be directed to Millsop Community Center.
