We want people to love swimming! When the kids we teach grow up, and check into a hotel – the first thing we hope they ask is ‘Where’s the pool?’ We want people to love being in, around and part of the water. We want people to be able to save themselves and to know what to do or not do in the water. Rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, irrigation ditches…water is everywhere. We teach children to rollover , float on their back and call for help. Swimming offers access to fitness opportunities for older children, water sports, water skiing, tubing, swimming, exercise, swimteam, and water safety skills. Swimming is a lifetime skill.
We would love to see more people in the community involved and trained to teach Swim America methods so we can expand availability to the public. We would love for our baby program to be embraced and give children earlier exposure to the water. We want adults to feel comfortable coming for instruction. We can help people overcome fear, feel safe and provide continued learning opportunities. Our program is also an excellent fit for home school families as an opportunity for physical education.
Calm Waters Aquatics is Pagosa Springs’ learn-to-swim school! We are committed to cultivating a love for water recreation, safety and sport swimming in students of all ages.
