The Oasis School of Fish
Our swim program is developed with kids in mind. Overcoming fear of water can be one of the most challenging obstacles kids face when learning how to swim. The Oasis provides the perfect environment for kids to overcome apprehension of being in the water. Once the anxiety and fear is gone, learning is rapid. Tania Klein, our aquatic director, has 17 years of teaching experience and is WSI (water safety instructor) certified and has enhanced the program to eliminate fear so that the students can focus on the skills of swimming. Most of our instructors have acquired the WSI certification as well and all have had instructional education in our methodology of teaching swimming lessons. We endeavor to provide an excellent learning experience for all our students from parent/child classes through stroke perfection.
