Come for a day filled with a teaching style meant for women who are a bit nervous about learning how to swim. Most women tell me they become nervous when thinking about taking a swimming class, so I created this class just for women who feel this way. Laugh, learn, and make new friends while treating yourself to a 5-hour workshop. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be in shape, have the perfect body and you don’t need to know how to swim!

2-day workshops, 8:30am-4:00pm both days. An incredible experience. For most people, this is the fastest and most efficient way to learn. Results are immediate and noticeable. You will leave the workshop with new friends and a new love for swimming! Students of T.I. Weekend Workshops should be able to swim 25 yards continuously. If you are a true beginner to swimming you should consider the All-Women’s Workshop or private lessons before attending a Weekend Workshop.

For students who have already attended either a Weekend Workshop or T.I. lessons in the past 2 years. We enhance your freestyle, working on balance, streamline and propulsion for an even faster stroke. We learn to incorporate Tempo Trainers into your pool or open-water sessions. 3-hour workshops available.

2-hour group clinics focus one just one aspect of your stroke such as streamline, efficient breathing, 2-beat kick, open-water techniques, etc... Keep your eye out for our current calendar.

Private & Semi-Private Lessons - Lessons are 1 hour long unless noted otherwise
Private            1.5 hr. Lesson $125              5 Lessons $295            10 Lessons $550

   (price per student)

Private and Semi-private (2-3 students) 1-hour lessons with Coach Jennifer are a great choice for those with limited availability. Coach Jennifer teaches in the moment, giving each student what they need to attain their best balance, streamline and propulsion for the most fluid and efficient freestyle. Private and semi-private lessons are available for all ability levels for ages 8-100.
