Dedicated to Teaching Individuals to Swim Confidently
The Cypress-Fairbanks Swim Club (FLEET Swimming) was founded in 1975. During the next two decades, it became quite obvious that there was a strong need for us at FLEET to not only prepare swimmers for the competitive team but also to reach out to the community, promote water safety, and teach children a crucial skill - how to swim. Thus, the FLEET First Swim School was created in 1999.
FLEET First Swim School is the only provider of the SwimAmerica™ program in the Northwest Houston area. SwimAmerica™ is a national learn-to-swim program operated by the American Swimming Coaches Association. It is managed by over 500 Program Directors at over 900 sites across the USA. SwimAmerica™ is the state-of-the-art swimming program of the nation today. Its curriculum has been developed by the committee of the American Swimming Coaches Association to provide the finest learn-to-swim progression possible.
The emphasis of the SwimAmerica Cypress Program is to teach proper swim techniques while learning basic water safety in a fun, energetic atmosphere. SwimAmerica was developed by coaches of the American Swimming Coaches Association in order to provide the finest learn-to- swim program available. The SwimAmerica coaching staff has been professionally trained to offer your child the latest in teaching and learning. SwimAmerica is both goal driven and technique oriented. Children are taught in small groups (4:1) and have the ability to move up to progressively higher level stations as they achieve the goals of their current group.
The SwimAmerica™ program is operated by using ten stations, or levels. Swimmers will move to the higher skill levels as they achieve the advancement goals of their present station. Because SwimAmerica™ is so goal-driven, we have been able to specify skills that must be mastered before progressing to the next difficulty or level of swimming. We will reward the swimmer at every phase of their progression and build their confidence as they are learning to swim.
Our school is technique-oriented. Our desire is to emphasize proper stroke mechanics from the very beginning. Our coaches will affirm correct swimming technique from the first lesson on. We love what we do, and are proud to bear the SwimAmerica™'s name. Our swim school produces strong swimmers who are ready for competitive swim, or who are just prepared to be in the water, wherever they may be.
