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.

From non-floaters through competitive swimmers, our priority is to teach children to swim well and to love and respect the water.
