Gold Medal Swim School is built on a unique foundation of Core Values: Safety, Air Regulation, Relaxation, Body Position, and Propulsion. This foundation is introduced in Baby Swim and extends through Learn to Swim, Swim Team, and Adult. We are excited you have chosen our program and feel it is the best aquatic opportunity for your swimmer! To learn more about our Core Values, click here.
Our curriculum utilizes a layered approach and skills are mastered when they are performed successfully with overlapping Core Values. This takes time and practice! Consistent, high-quality repetition leads to mastery and builds a strong platform to launch both confident survivors and great competitors.
Instructors follow timed lesson plans comprised of skills and Core Values, but the real success happens when instructors tailor these to each student’s needs. You can expect to see skills uniquely delivered to each individual student within the group dynamic. Low student to instructor ratios allow us to teach our swimmers more effectively.
Instructors go underwater with students! The only way to properly assess tension and relaxation levels is to actually watch and acknowledge them. We also think it is FUN to go underwater and see smiling faces! Students become more confident when their instructor is doing the skills alongside them.
We go underwater with your swimmer not only to watch them let go of their air, but to check their relaxation, comfort, and stress level. We want to help your swimmer learn to relax as they let go of their air because it gives them the best possible chance to swim fast for a long distance or even propel themselves in a survival situation.
