One with the Water® - The best swim school in los angeles - A Philosophy
Our philosophy at One with the Water® is to be the best swim school in Los Angeles. To achieve that goal, we focus on the belief
that learning to swim should be simple, practical and fun. We understand that children are different with varying needs and will
progress at their own pace. Allowing children to explore and make mistakes is an integral part of learning, which we respect. That is
why our swimming instructors are trained to guide the student into becoming One with the Water®.
Some children may cry for the first day or two as they try to gain control of a new situation. Parents always know what
is best for their children. In a life-saving situation, immediate action is required and this can be developed as a
conditioned response. We believe in a no-nonsense method of swim instruction that works. We teach swimming as a life-skill.
We call it a life-skill because it could potentially save your or your child’s life.
Our swim lessons reflect a positive and individualized approach and work for everyone, from complete beginners
to competitive swimmers. Our swim instructors have training in mentoring swimmers with special needs. Swimming will
develop inner and physical strength. Swimmers and their families will develop discipline, mutual trust and
respect, control, support, pride and the life skill of swimming. These are attributes that can be applied to
all areas of life. We expect each swimmer to strive to do his or her best during each lesson. We encourage
families to use swimming as a fun, physical, and healthy part of their lifestyle.
proud to be a non-profit swim school
One with the
Water® is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization - Grants and donations pay exclusively for pool space, insurance, and instruction for kids and families with limited financial
means. Especially during California's budget crisis, many schools lack the financial resources, personnel and facilities to provide athletic programs
or physical therapy for children with special needs. One with the Water® aims to fill that need, with specially-trained instructors and a nimble,
low-overhead, non-profit model of operation.
