For more than 35 years Salem Gymnastics has taught the joys of movement through gymnastics, martial arts, dance and more. With the addition of Salem Swim, we’re excited to teach not only an important safety skill, but also the joys of movement in the water that will last a lifetime. Our priority is to teach children to swim well, to love and respect the water. We are committed to providing swim lessons that build confidence and teach water skills in a child-centered environment. Warm water, warm air, a friendly staff, small student-teacher ratios and a proven curriculum produce comfortable students who are ready to learn and thrive!

OUR FACILITY

Salem Swim houses two warm water pools with state of the art filtration and sanitation systems to insure safe, clear water for our students and staff. The smaller pool is designed specifically for our youngest students, while the larger can accommodate several classes at once. The use of noodles, kickboards, mirrors, portable platforms and more mean each of our students can have an experience tailored to their needs. There are large viewing windows from the lobby to the pools, as well as exterior windows that provide both natural light and scenic views of the woods and pond. On deck showers and changing facilities are designed with families in mind.

SCHEDULES

Learning to swim well is not a skill that you can learn in just a few quick lessons, but requires time to develop and practice. Salem Swim offers year round, 30-minute lessons allowing you to make swimming a regular part of your child’s weekly activities. This is the best way to encourage and maintain the water safety and fitness benefits that swimming offers your child.



For Boys & Girls

Salem Swim provides swim classes based on age and ability. With curriculum approved by the United States Swim School Association’s established guidelines, this isn’t your typical kick and splash class. Our instructors are trained to guide children with encouragement through developmentally appropriate activities that promote safety and teach children to swim well.

Our priority is to teach children to swim well, and to love and respect the water.
