PENGU SWIM ACADEMY

Graduates from Pengu Super move on to our Pengu Swim Academy.

Pengu’s Swim Team Academy is designed for students that have mastered all the skills in each of Pengu’s previous levels. Swimmers focus more on technique and endurance to prepare them for a future in competitive swimming. Swimmers get to participate in an hour-long session in the pool, free of other classes. Unlike other swim teams, Swim Team Academy at Pengu is taught by experienced instructors who are in the water with the swimmers. The ratio is 1 instructor to 8 students, to allow for more individual attention on each swimmer’s technique and training. Just like our lessons, Swim Team Academy is offered on a perpetual basis throughout the year. Swim Team Academy days vary among locations but it is always from 7pm-8pm. Pengu holds three in-house swim meets a year for its swimmers apart of Swim Team Academy.

Call your nearest Pengu location for more information.The cost of Swim Team Academy is the same as regular swim lessons,$78/month.
