Ripples Swim School is a proud member of the United States Swim School Association.

We focused on building the ideal facility for children's swim lessons.  From our saltwater swimming pool to our 90 degree air and water temperatures, all details, amenities, target temperatures, floor layouts and safety precautions were designed around the specific needs of young children and their families.  At Ripples, we teach an evolved swim curriculum geared towards children which makes the learning process fun and effective.  We offer lesson programs for ages 4 months and up.  In addition to Swim Lessons, we offer Open Family Swim times during designated hours for families to enjoy our facility together.  Our facility is also available for Pool Party Rentals for

The Ripples Difference

As lifelong swimmers and parents to 3 young children, we recognized a lack of quality swim lessons programs offered in our local area that were focused on children.  There was no swim curriculum being taught that seemed effective and got the results we were looking for.  There were no facilities with a safe and enjoyable atmosphere that we, and our kids, looked forward to visiting each week.  We recognized this need for an evolved swim lesson program for children operating out of a specialized facility and set out to start Ripples Swim School.
