We wrote the book, literally, on how to learn to swim as an adult. We have over 50 licensed instructors in our new system (since 1983) around the world. We also produced a how-to video. You may listen to 13 radio episodes of The Learn to Swim Show at our website MiracleSwimming.org for free, or at iTunes. See a free comprehensive video on MiracleSwimming.org at our Freebies page that introduces you to our unique, powerful teaching and the feeling of being in class.

Make your whole family safe in water. Demystify the water with myth-busting games and discussions that make learning so much simpler! All classes are go-at-your-own-pace. You'll never be hurried or pushed. Strokes classes are also available after you've learned to swim.

FAMILY WATER SAFETY ADVISORY

In Sarasota, our beaches and pools are some of our most precious vacation destinations. Keep your family safe by observing not only the commonly-heard rules, but also the new ones. 

  • Swim at lifeguarded beaches only when guard stations are staffed.
  • Wear sun protection in the form of SPF clothing or sun blocks that do not harm the water or its animals.
  • If you panic in water over your head, or if you’re not convinced that you float, wear a lifejacket in and on the water. Many lives are lost in the belief that, “It won’t happen to me.”
  • When kids are in the water, designate a Water-Watcher: someone whose eyes are on the children at all times and who is not distracted. Every 15 minutes, rotate in another Water Watcher.
  • On boats, especially if you don’t swim, wear a life jacket. Simply knowing where life jackets are won’t help you if you fall, hit your head, and fall out.
  • When your baby is near the water (tub, sink, pool, beach, bucket, toilet) for any length of time, and you need to leave for “just a second,” ask yourself if you want to risk it’s life. Take the baby with you, wet, dirty, regardless.
  • Leave the water and the beach when there’s thunder or lightning. If you can’t get off the beach in time to go indoors, lie down so as not to be the highest object around. 
  • If someone is struggling in the water, resist your instincts to go in after them. Extend a pole, rope, rake, broom from the side, or from shallow water-- if a lifeguard is not present-- so that they can feel it and grasp it to be pulled in. Touching a struggling swimmer is a virtual guarantee of being pushed and held under water so that they can get air: they are in survival mode. 
  • In a rip current, lie back and float on your back. If you can, swim on your back parallel to shore, not against the current. Many rip currents are circular and return you to shore within ~10 minutes. If you need help, wave. Lifeguards consider waving a call for help.
  • The difference between being safe and not being safe is the knowledge that you float, and that you can prevent yourself from panicking.
  • Learn to be safe in water over your head. We have many classes in Sarasota, even for visitors.
