COMPREHENSIVE SWIMMING LESSONS IN THE BAY AREA
In addition to being a fun activity for the whole family, swimming is a great way to keep fit. Swimming offers a low-impact, full-body workout that can also help to boost your mood and manage stress. When it comes to swim lessons, it’s essential to choose a school that offers comprehensive, safety-centric classes. La Petite Baleen Swim Schools has been providing award-winning swimming lessons in the Bay Area since 1979. Our curriculum is focused on water safety awareness, ensuring that your children learn not only technique, but life-saving practices as well. We currently have four locations, ensuring that fun, educational swim classes and sparkling clean pools are only a short drive away.Sign Up
