It’s no wonder families are flocking to Njswim – their experience and education for swim instruction is second to none. Njswim offers semi-private swim lessons with a 3:1 student to teacher ratio, ensuring each child gets the attention they deserve.  All staff members are experienced, certified swim teachers who have completed coursework in lifeguard training, water safety, first aid, personal fitness training, psychology and early childhood education.

Their passion to teach safer swimming has fueled growth and expansion in New Jersey and their “learn to float” philosophy has made Njswim one of the largest year-round swim schools in the state.

Their newest location in Turnersville is a state-of-the-art swim school that is family and water-baby friendly with custom changing rooms, stroller parking and hair drying stations. The 30-by-70-foot indoor pool is heated, with top-of-the-line water and air filtration systems. Parents will love the comfortable viewing area and the multipurpose studios for toddler through adult programs as well as pool parties.

Njswim offers year-round swim lessons for people of all ages and abilities. Their award-winning “Water Babies” curriculum is for 3-to-15-month-old babies and is taught entirely with parental assistance. This program is designed to provide families with a safe and positive introduction to an aquatic environment with the goal of achieving a relaxed demeanor in the water for both the children and parents.

The next progression is for children aged 16 to 30 months with a goal of weaning them into lessons with less parental assistance. Njswim is a different kind of swim school experiencing tremendous growth throughout New Jersey, and this year is celebrating its 21-year anniversary of making learning to swim fun. With over 130 teachers and more than 5,000 lessons per week they care about water safety and the families they serve.

Safety swim lessons for preschoolers are the first level where children are independent of their parents with a teacher and are taught breath control, supported floating and how to enter and exit the pool safely. A free swim evaluation is offered to help teachers determine the best class level and options for each child.

Njswim offers flexible year-round rolling memberships, allowing families to jump in at times that best suit their busy schedules and have spots reserved as they go through the year. Njswim Turnersville features a very popular “intensive Summer Swim” program, a five-day program designed to help children improve quicker than weekly lessons. A week of Intensive Swim gives students over a month worth of lessons in one week with amazing results.

“Our summer swim programs are absolutely the best method of teaching kids of all ages the fundamentals of water safety and how to feel comfortable in the water and really learn how to swim,” says Joe Oehme, founder of Njswim.

Oehme is a founding member of the NJ Swim Safety Alliance, National Drowning Prevention Alliance, Safer 3 Water Safety Foundation, and sits on the board of directors of Stop Drowning Now, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to water safety.
