On June 1, 2020, Wisconsin Swim Academy opened a brand new swim facility in North Appleton. It has been a journey from Susie Van Ekeren’s home pool where she started teaching lessons from her family’s backyard to pay for a pool heater to this exciting new facility 15 years ago. As a mother of 4 boys, safety has always been a concern for Susie, and she is passionate about teaching and sharing the importance of swimming and raising confident swimmers.
Why are swimming lessons important?
Drowning is the #1 cause of accidental death in children under the age of 5. Putting your child in lessons reduces this risk by 88%! Studies also show that kids in swim lessons before the age of 5 were ahead of their peers physically and socially by 15-20 months! (Study by Griffith University- Australia)
What makes Wisconsin Swim Academy unique?
The swim school brings professional swimming lessons for all ages in Northeast Wisconsin. Confidence and self-esteem building is a priority, as confident swimmers are safe swimmers. Your child’s trust is earned providing a loving, gentle approach with teaching and building their confidence so they can become smart, strong swimmers thus giving you peace of mind.
Wisconsin Swim Academy specializes in professional, semi-private lessons. Each lesson has one or two kids per instructor and runs 30 minutes.
