At Swim Clo we teach people to "Learn to Swim in a 1/4 of the time."*
What other programs do in 3-4 years we do in 1 year therefore saving you the most precious commodity 'TIME'. 

Claudine used the knowledge gained from her  UBC Human Kinetics (Honours received) and Education degrees in combination with  25 years of teaching swimming and school experience to develop a unique learn-to-swim program that works! As a result of the Swim Clo Program, which is only taught at her swim schools, her students learn to swim in 1/4 of the time. This innovative, one-of-a-kind program, yeilds strong swimmers in 1 year, which would otherwise take 3-4 years in traditional programs.*

We encourage Year-Round Swimming Lessons

It seems natural to a lot of us that swimming lessons are to get ready for summer and so, come Winter and Fall, there is no reason to stay in lessons, THINK AGAIN! 

  • Your child worked hard to get to where they are now in their skills, so why let that go to waste? Consistency is the key to retaining a skill on a permanent basis. Without the consistency children naturally regress and you will find that come Spring your child, and your wallet, will be doing catch up!

  • There may be other sports but swimming should be viewed as a life skill like learning to read or write. Swimming may in fact one day save your life.

  • Swimming is ranked by professionals as one of the top 3 sports to have your child in as it develops coordination, cardiovascular and muscular endurance.

  • Worried your child will be too tired for lessons after a day in school? Your child has been sitting all day at school; being physically active will actually give them more energy! Health Canada recommends that children have 60 minutes of exercise per day


I was sold on how great Swim Clo was after the first lesson. Our son was getting bored in other swim lessons - he doesn’t have a chance to get bored at Swim Clo! Since we have our own pool, safety is especially a concern. We are very pleased that the lessons focus on safety and that the classes are tailored to each child.

Swimming is an important life skill and I wanted the best instructor I could find for my daughter. The classes are small and the lessons are tailored to each participant. My daughter’s skills advanced much faster than they did in the recreational program.

After one class with minimal previous pool time, both my girls swam without a flotation device...I was floored! After one year of lessons, I am amazed at how far Hallee and Myra have come in the program.

I was amazed to see how quickly my two-year-old daughter went from not being able to swim at all to doing ‘doggie paddle’ across the pool - it was a matter of days! My eyes filled up with tears knowing this could save my child’s life one day.
