Why choose Madison Swim Academy? 

Overall Philosphy

At Madison Swim Academy, our goal is to provide your child with the necessary skills to be safe in the water, while at the same time promoting a love of swimming. We offer an environment for children to develop an appreciation and respect for the water. Our swim lessons empower a child to promote their own safety, as well as the safety of others. Our instructors become a source for a child's self confidence by encouraging and reinforcing them as they begin to explore. We want to support your child in creating a level of confidence that they can then use in all aspects of their lives.

The Philosophy Behind The Success of Our Swimmers

At MSA, we use a very specific approach in our presentation and application of our swim program. The foundation of the swim lessons is based on a research based system which emphasizes the teaching of early survival skills. These essential skills are taught with an underlying importance on balance and positioning. The early introduction of these essential techniques really sets a child up to succeed when they extend beyond survival skills and are learning to swim. The four strokes require this balance and positioning to be performed correctly and proficiently. When introducing these guidlines for success from the beginning, the child will become accustomed to good habits and learn correct technique from the start.
