The Carla Swim Method redefines the swim lesson for today's fearful, tactile, quirky, and differently behaved person. My unique methodology has been built out of 40+ years of experience with all kinds of learners and functioners, who helped me develop a fun and unique approach that works!
They might have a diagnosis like ADHD, Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder, or Anxiety, but that doesn't really matter. If you are having trouble making progress, becoming water safe, or learning strokes, in other methodologies and schools, Carla Swim is a great option for you.
STROKE AND COMPETITIVE DEVELOPMENT
Last year we proudly added a new division, "Swim Fast With Sam" to help summer swimmers, triathletes, or people who want to have regular workouts in a private beautiful setting, to become more efficient competitive swimmers. It was highly successful and rounds us out to be a full service swim school. We look forward to serving those swimmers in a bigger and better way this year!
FAST PACED AND HIGHLY FOCUSED ON RESULTS
Our lessons are designed and executed for maximum progress and a ton of fun in every lesson. We develop trusted relationships with a deep understanding of learning styles. We don't force, but instead, co create each session offering swimmers a sense of confidence and trust that opens them up to pushing through those challenging comfort zones. They learn how capable they are and this carries over into other areas of their life. Our work together inspires our swimmers to their best and most confident selves.
PRIVATE SETTING OFFERS LESS DISTRACTIONS AND NO EMBARRASSMENT
Our private and quiet setting has calm water and no distractions or embarrassment, which is the perfect space to be focused, and in which you can gain your confidence and skills! It is helpful for those who are highly distracted or sensitive to noise, and is greatly preferred by adults who never learned to swim, because there is no embarrassment of being seen. The joy of overcoming a lifetime of fear translates to life confidence in many other areas as well.
IF YOU ARE UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THESE GUIDELINES, PLEASE DON'T BOOK. CONTACT ME WITH QUESIONS OR JUST WAIT UNTIL THINGS GET MORE SECURE. WE WILL ALWAYS TRY TO FIND SPACE AND PLAN TO STAY OPEN THROUGH SEPTEMBER!
We will only be offering 2 people per lane for lane rental and 3 for groups.
Chlorine will be kept higher than usual at 2.0 or above.
The pool deck, tile, equipment, port a pot, and toys will be sanitized between each swimmer/group.
We ask that parents try not to bring all the siblings, to reduce exposure. We understand that in some cases it's just necessary. If siblings are present, please try to have them sit together, and sanitize hands as they arrive.
Sam and I will keep distance as much as possible. We plan to use the noodles and other aids to support you while keeping distance. We will not be wearing masks due to being outside or in the water with you. It just won't work to be heard or to demonstrate.
If you have a very young swimmer or someone who needs to be held a lot (this would mostly be for Carla's clients) we would invite you to wait until the 6' guidelines are lifted. Feel free to contact carla to discuss.
