Njswim offers quality year-round swim lessons for all ages and abilities, now available at seven premier locations. Their developmental approach to swimming starts with water babies at age 3 months. The program then offers a variety of safety swim lessons for preschoolers, developmental stroke technique for youths and continues to advanced stroke mechanics and swim team prep. Students enrolled in Njswim are led through a series of safety skills designed to enhance the aquatic experience and instill self-confidence in a safe and positive atmosphere.
Njswim’s proprietary “learn to float philosophy” teaches safety first and is the cornerstone to their swim teaching progression. Their curriculum is rooted in a gentle, nurturing approach to what can be a very intimidating lesson in a child’s life.
“Taking a more gentle, loving approach to swimming lessons allows our teachers to assist our students in developing, buoyancy, proper body position and breath control before learning stroke technique. Our progression is appropriate for all levels and develops a sense of safety and awareness in and around the water. Another important distinction for Njswim, is the fact that all of our team members are swim teachers. Every single Njswim team member, from myself as owner and founder of the company, the directors and managers are all swim teachers. When we hire and train our deck supervisors and lifeguards, they are automatically enrolled in our Swim Teacher Career path.” Joe Oehme, Njswim Owner & Founder
