Dynamic Level System

Our level system is carefully crafted to ensure that our students are receiving the best possible instruction. Our teachers are trained to evaluate each student's skill level throughout the session, which allows us to group students together based on their strengths and areas of focus. We believe that this dynamic approach to teaching ensures that each student reaches their full potential. With our carefully designed levels, we are confident that our students will become confident, safe, and strong swimmers.

What people are saying about us!

Hi, John, Ryan likes you so much. Thank you so much for the lesson today. Hope you can continue to teach Ryan every Sunday morning!

Lynn C

As a mother it's completely unimaginable that this girl who was so afraid of the water would now be inviting her classmates on a swimming date... Thank you!!

Serena W

The coach is very nice, very patient explanation and accompaniment, my child from swimming to find the confidence of sports!

Kevin Z

I cant believe how basic and easy swimming really is. No useless drills or swimming everything we have done makes so much sense and the progress I have made is unimaginable.

Smaller Classes

At Turnstroke we don't allow our basic classes any bigger than 3 students to a single teacher. This ensures all students are safer and receive the maximum amount of support during their lesson.

Water Safety Integration

Rather than focusing purely on swimming. We believe a good foundation for water survival is the key to a lifelong swimmer. Versus only focusing on technique and lap swimming. Water survival challenges students with a new aspect of in-water learning.

Modern Class Flow

After taking inspiration from new open space classrooms. Our lessons offer a dynamic flow of class where students are given more support in areas of focus through students switching between teachers during their lesson.

Squid changes vastly from beginner level as students are faced with new strokes such as backstroke and begin to chain their arm circles with their breathing. At this level, students should be nearing to swim basic front and back techniques without teacher support.

Level Description 

Skilled swimmers I am the first of the skilled levels and will have a higher barrier for entry as the lesson is doubled in duration. At this level, students will begin swimming more repetitive laps to work on endured technique increasing speed and stamina. At this level, students will begin to learn butterfly kick.
