These four things worked especially well for me: “One-on-one instruction, surface diving, getting out of a float and venturing in the deep water.”Smyrna, GA
  • – OH
  • Smyrna, GA
“The approach to various skills was excellent. Perhaps it would be better to have class in an indoor pool so that the class schedule is not affected by the weather.”
  • – SS
  • Urbana, IL
“Love the concept. We had great facilitators. I made some small leaps, but not comfortable yet – deep water needs more exploration time.”
  • – PJ
  • Fort Meyers Beach, FL
“More spotters would have helped, especially because everyone is in a unique place in their learning. I will definitely recommend this course to others.”
  • – SS
  • Stamford, CT
“Beautiful new pool!! This class is like no other. It should not be called a class since it doesn’t adhere to the usual class rules. It’s more like a swim understanding.”
  • – BM
  • Chadds Ford, PA
“Liberating, exciting, revealing, stupendous. If you have fear in the water, definitely take this class. Even if you don’t fear the water, the course teaches you principles to apply to other aspects of life and your own freedom in the water. Well worth the price.”
  • – AB
  • Bradenton, FL
“Most definitely worth the time and money. Everything that was promised about having fun and learning at your own pace was true every day.”

“Almost everything you fear about adult swimming programs is dispelled in this program. It was amazing how small steps led to big breakthroughs and results!

“A very good class. The pace was a bit slower than expected. It’s helpful to be in a class with people who have the same thoughts and fears as yourself.”
  • – DM
  • Eden Prairie, MN

  • Hull, MA
“I absolutely loved the class and I would highly recommend it to anyone where swimming lessons failed for them. The fact that I could go slow and take the time to feel and relax worked well for me.”
  • – PT
  • Green Cove Spring, FL
“I am very pleased with the course. Thank you. I will be back for the Next Step class. I would have benefited from having a better understanding in advance of how far I could expect to develop in the week.”
  • – MK
  • New York, NY
“Things that worked well for me in this class were the 2-foot pool, the holding bars in the pool plus the games and toys. Let people know—don’t plan any activities during classes and drink plenty of water and eat fruit.”
  • – JDR
  • Arlington, VA
“This is probably the best approach available for getting comfortable with the water. One has to be willing to take some risks, but this course makes that easier. Confidence builds slowly and you have to be realistic about what you will accomplish.”
  • – MS
  • Washington, DC
“I am very impressed with the MSA method–teaching you a new skill without “teaching” or “preaching,” sometimes without even realizing you are acquiring a new skill.”
  • – VS
  • Houston, TX
