At Goldfish Swim School in Birmingham, MI, we offer engaging swim classes for kids aged 4 to 12. These lessons cater to children from Birmingham, Royal Oak, Bloomfield Hills, and the surrounding areas. Our Glider swim classes are structured into three levels to accommodate beginners with no experience and those who can swim independently.

Tailored Swim Lessons for Every Skill Level

Our Glider level swim class is designed to match your child’s current swimming abilities and comfort level. Each 30-minute session maintains a four-child limit, ensuring personalized attention and an optimal learning environment. Beginner lessons focus on building confidence and essential water safety skills. Your child will learn foundational techniques such as submerging their body, holding their breath, and back floating. As they progress to the intermediate level, they’ll start refining their freestyle/front crawl over increasing distances. Our experienced instructors ensure every child receives the guidance and encouragement they need.

We believe learning to swim should be a joyful experience. Our Glider swim class incorporate games, rewards, and a fun atmosphere to keep young swimmers engaged and motivated.
