Developing Barron Swim School
Barron’s mission of “building skills for life” is front and center at our swim school. The state of the art facility has been designed for a learn to swim program for ages 6 months and up, from beginners to a recreational swim team. The program will not only get children comfortable in the water and able to swim across the pool, but provide them education on safety around water and take them through a journey of learning that will serve them for life. Our end goal for students who complete all of our levels is for them to be able to safely and fully participate in water activities for the rest of their life. They will be able to go on a family vacation and swim in the ocean, to surf or ski, to scuba or snorkel, to join a competitive swim team, or to go to the pool with friends and be able to swim in the deep end and jump off the diving board.
Over 3 years of research and learning went into this endeavor prior to opening. The Barron Family visited around 50 swim schools and attended swim industry professional conferences all over the nation and abroad in Australia. We consulted with numerous experts in the field to develop our facility, curriculum, procedures, class management and teaching techniques. We continue this pursuit of education in the field and pass that knowledge and training on to all of our staff. We have been experts in the gymnastics field since 1978 and many of the gymnastics procedures, policies, staff training and teaching techniques apply directly to the swim school. You will see the same quality of instruction and facility at the swim school as we have prided ourselves on at our gymnastics club. We expect no less. Our family’s goal to be experts in the swim field and history of leadership in the gymnastics industry has not gone unnoticed in the swim industry. Diane and Julie Barron were both invited to speak at the National Swim Conferences and were able to share and teach other swim experts about staff hiring and training as well as office procedures and customer service. Barron swim school is a member of the US Swim School Association.
