FIND THE RIGHT CLASS
We start by asking several questions about your child to do a proper evaluation. We want to see your child advance their swimming skills but we want to keep your children safe and we want to encourage them to keep swimming their whole lives.
Drowning prevention and water safety are some of the life-saving skills that children will learn when they learn to swim.
Our certified staff will place your child in the best swimming program that will fit their needs and have a positive effect on their swimming skills.
Flexible Lesson Times
Most noteworthy, we offer customized swimming classes and flexible swimming lessons. We offer swim lessons at four conveniently located swim schools around the greater Houston area.
You can choose the timing that suits you best. You can also ask for private swimming lessons for a more personalized experience.
Our web-based management system makes it easy to mark your child absent if you need to miss a class, update contact information for your child, and change any payment form with a few clicks.
Certified Swimming Instructors
The most important aspect to making sure that your child learns to be water safe is having a fully trained and certified instructor that can guide your swimmer to success.
We take each of our instructors through extensive training to ensure that your swimmer gets the very best instruction. On land and in-water training are a prerequisite for our instructors.
Each instructor is trained to teach baby classes all the way up to the swim academy.
Baby Swim Classes
The Baby 1 level focuses on comfort, acclimation, and safety for babies. This parent/child class introduces babies to the water in a warm and comfortable environment. This level also focuses on turning involuntary reflexes into learned voluntary movements in the water.
The Baby 2 level focuses on continued water acclimation and safety as well as parental independence. This parent/child class builds upon skills attained in the Baby 1 level and incorporates more Toddler level activities to prepare the swimmer for Toddler classes.

Since these swimmers are more comfortable in the water, there is more emphasis placed on swimming independently.

The Beginner 2 level focuses on introducing swimmers to basic technical skills needed to be able to perform freestyle and backstroke. Swimmers in this level learn how to do “big arms”, side breathes independently as well as a kick on their back independently. These swimmers also learn to self-save by submerging and recovering to a float position.
Advanced Swim Classes

Advanced level swimmers have plenty of experience in the water with working knowledge of technical freestyle and backstroke. The Advanced level focuses on fine-tuning the swimmers’ freestyle and backstroke to a competition-ready level. This level also introduces swimmers to breaststroke, butterfly, flip-turns, treading water with endurance and swimming laps with endurance

Pengu’s Swim Academy is a year-round swim program to help your child stay fit and build their technique in a fun and safe environment. Swim Academy offers an hour-long, curriculum-based practice to help your child improve their stroke technique and endurance.

Private Swim Lessons
Semi-private (1:2) lessons are tailor-made to the needs of the specific swimmer. These lessons are taught according to each swimmer’s skill sets instead of a particular level. Swimmers that take private lessons also have the option to swim in group lessons that correspond to their skill set.
Pengu’s private (1:1) lessons are tailor-made to the needs of the specific swimmer. These lessons are taught according to each swimmer’s skill sets instead of a particular level. Swimmers that take private lessons also have the option to swim in group lessons that correspond to their skill set.
Head start clinics are offered throughout the year. These clinics are a good way to get new swimmers a little extra help before they start perpetual lessons or as an added boost to those already taking perpetual lessons.
Summer clinics are offered at one or two week intervals. These intensive lessons help swimmers build a lot of skills in a short amount of time. Clinics are held Monday-Friday.
