Learn to swim the Newark Summer Swim way!

At Newark Summer Swim, we feel that we offer a better brand of swim lessons.

bulletWe offer LOW student to teacher ratios. In level one, every child has their own aide and an instructor that runs the class. Even in our highest levels we offer a ratio of, at most, 5 students to one aide (plus the class instructor.) Many swim schools don't even offer this ratio (that we have at our highest levels) for their lowest levels. See our Class Descriptions for level specific ratios.
bulletWe use the trusted American Red Cross learn to swim system. Since 1914, the American Red Cross has been the leader in providing swim lessons and other aquatic services.
bulletWe offer our lessons in two week blocks.  Children can forget new things quickly; having lessons in a daily setting allows fewer skills to be repeated. This means your child learns more skills at a faster pace.
bulletOur lessons are held in a fun, sunny, outdoor environment over the summer. At indoor pools, it's easy to be overpowered by the humid and chlorine musked air.
bulletOur pool starts shallow and slants to nine feet over 13 lanes. This means that there is plenty of space for everyone and that every level learns its respective skills at a proper depth. Our pool is also always heated.
bulletFor parents: we offer several covered sitting areas that are within view of the pool.  Parents can have some time to themselves in the shade, watch intently or do a bit of both while their children learn an important skill for life.
bulletOn top of the aforementioned reasons that we feel make us the best, we also consider ourselves a program that gives back to the community in an extra way.  We are a branch of the Newark Unified School District so all proceeds from the Newark Summer Swim Program go right back to the schools, not somebody's pocketbook.
bulletNot being a profit driven organization allows us to place a greater emphasis on the quality of our swim lessons instead of a focus on our bottom line.
