Beginner Swim Series

A beginner swim class designed for doggie paddlers, floaters, sinkers, and everything in between. Learn to swim freestyle for cross-training, triathlon training, or simply because you would like to know how. 


Beginner Swim Series is a 4 week program designed to teach you how to swim freestyle. Class meets 1x per week for 1 hour of in-water instruction covering the fundamentals of freestyle. Classes are capped at 10 participants to ensure quality instruction. 

Our highly successful approach is to teach freestyle by doing specific swim drills. We break down freestyle into separate parts – rhythmic breathing, body positioning, kick, arm cycle – so you can work on each one separately and master it before moving onto the next. Our approach is to decrease the overwhelm so you can learn quicker and easier.

Testimonial for our September swim series:

“I feel like I’ve come so far with my technique in just 2 classes and practicing the drills! Thanks Coach Bree!” Justin

Check out some testimonials from prior swim clinic attendees, private swim sessions, beginner triathletes, etc:

“Bree is a great coach, she will get your ready with the swim and she’s very knowledgeable! Nothing to lose and a lot to gain!” Betty

“Bree is an amazing coach!  The swim clinic was so helpful.  She has a way of breaking down each element of a stroke that just makes sense.  She explains things that are easy to understand and implement.  She can relate to any swim level skill and isn’t afraid to jump right in the pool with you to show what to do!  Her enthusiasm for coaching is contagious and makes you so excited to learn and keep trying to improve or try something new!” Rachel 

“Bree is a great swim teacher! I think she could teach a rock to swim – helped me bunches! Thanks Bree!” Jessie 

“In the many swim practice sessions with Coach Bree, I always learn something valuable to improve my swimming. Her many years of swim experience is evident as she easily breaks down the mechanics of swimming into steps anyone can understand and apply. Bree has the unique ability to effectively train beginners to advanced while keeping it fun! I have seen a number of people go from barely able to swim to see successfully swimming in triathlons!” Craig 

“Thanks for the class. As always, Great!! coaching. The explanations as to why a position works (or doesn’t work) in the water is so helpful, it gels the concept and helps me remember. You also do a great job at the “teach and repeat”, teach and repeat. Only way for a new learner to really grab all those pearls of wisdom. I feel like I’ve learned A LOT and found many things I can work on after just one hour with you.” Michelle 

“Thanks Bree for your patience and you’re knowledgeable in the water!!!” Stephanie 

“Thank you so much! Your workshop clarified information and broke it down easily. You’re an awesome coach! ” Donna

“I had a really good swim today. Did a lot of the drills and focused on what we did yesterday. Already notice a significant difference in muscles used and a decrease in time already. Thank you very much, you’re the best!!” Al
