STAY UP TO DATE:
Please see Navigating the Waters, to stay up to date on
the happenings at FLOW while our doors are closed.
Since 2004, FLOW Aquatics Swim School has shared the fundamentals of swimming with both beginners and experts.
While our innovative techniques are highly acclaimed by industry experts, we do more than simply offer swimming lessons. Our mission is to teach children of all ages—even babies—the Fundamentals of Learning to become One with the Water, and truly bring out the swimmer within.
Join us and experience the joy and freedom swimming can bring.
As of April 2018, we have transitioned to more efficient format for teaching —
Semi-private lessons for 15 minutes.
For more information on why we chose to adopt this format, click here.
We have a swimmer!
Elliot started swimming lessons at 4 years old and unfortunately had an event occur that resulted in her being incredibly fearful of the water. She enjoyed baths and the pool but didn’t want even a drop of water on her face.
As parents we waited with hopes she would grow out of it. Seeing the conflict Elliot felt in the water we started to explore our options for swimming lessons once again. FLOW came recommended by two friends and so we pursued it.
We had our interview and shared Elliot’s past experience as well as her fear of water on her face. FLOW’s approach to the water and confidence in being able to help Elliot overcome her fear was just what we needed to start Elliot in private lessons.
Coach Aimee’s calm yet encouraging approach kept Elliot in the pool. Coach Aimee worked through Elliot’s tearful refusal with a consistent message of trying is all that is expected. As Elliot made progress FLOW recommended Elliot start group lessons.
This was another milestone for Elliot as multiple kids means multiple splashing opportunities. As the weeks passed the tears reduced and smiles and laughter were shared. That said Elliot still had reservations at certain skills and yet her coach met her with guidance and instruction to work through the fear.
Elliot had a number of awesome coaches, all with different styles, but consistent in safety efforts and effective ways to push Elliot toward her next skill. Elliot’s lessons with Coach Kathy are forever in our hearts. To see the joy on Coach Kathy’s face when Elliot passed a skill cannot be described but it undoubtedly motivated Elliot to try harder and gave us all complete confidence in our commitment to FLOW.
Thanks again for all you and your team did for Elliot. I look forward to our paths crossing again
My son started swimming lessons at Flow Aquatics when he was just three years old. He is almost four now and can swim across the pool by himself! I credit the awesome coaches for this! The coach- to-student ratio is ideal for getting the most out of the 30 minute lesson one day a week. I love that my son gets direct one-on-one time with people who can relate to children and swimming so well. My son loves his coaches and even better loves to SWIM!
My daughter was afraid of the water and my husband and I were worried about safety issues and future swimming experiences. We looked for a site that offered a small class, with a more personal experience. We started at the Meridian site when our daughter was 4 and went once a week. Then moved each time a larger site became available. My daughter went weekly for almost 5 years and now is amazing in the water. She loves to swim and her confidence has drastically increased. She earned a trophy for her hard work and cherishes it. The whole team at Flow Aquatics made our experience memorable and life-changing. Thank you!
I had been swim "training" for several months in preparation for Ironman Coeur D'Alene at the end of June, but not really improving much. I wasn't worried too much about making the distance of 2.4 miles, but my technique was terrible and I was always very tired after swimming laps in the pool because of all the energy I was using due to poor technique. I finally decided that I needed some outside help and signed up for the FLOW workshop that a friend had recommended. By the end of the day, I felt much more efficient in the water - I was definitely "FLOWing" compared to my previous efforts.
