My wife and I chose SASA after looking at various options for swim lessons for our youngest son. It's a bit of a drive from where we live, but we will continue to use SASA because of the Ms. Corey. My son did not know how to swim, period. He used a life vest when he was around a pool to avoid any incidences. For all of that, my son grew frustrated with being limited to floating around as opposed to actually swimming. Ms. Corey has been appropriately friendly and enthusiastic from Day 1. Ms. Corey takes the time to walk over and welcome the students to join her when it's time to start, and concludes the lesson by speaking with the parents about any gains (or concerns) that occurred that day. Even with the few times Ms. Corey has chided my son for walking a bit too rapidly along the side of the pool, he still enjoys the lessons and has never complained about going to a lesson. Ms. Corey (and SASA) has been good for my son. His swimming improved quickly over the summer that during the family vacation (five weeks after beginning), my son was able to safely swim and play with his cousins. I would definitely recommend SASA for a beginning swimmer. All of the coaches I have interacted with are friendly, work well with the students, and all listen to the concerns of the parents.
I signed up two of my kids, ages 3 and 5, and they both love it, they look forward to swimming lessons! Coaches are great, they work very well with the kids, they know how to push them, and also make them comfortable in the water at the same time. My 3 year old was scared and crying the first day, but then the instructors made him comfortable and now he looks forward to going and have his coach sing him a song while teaching him how to swim! At the beginning they ask what your goal is, what do you want your children to accomplish, and they constantly keep you updated on how your kids are progressing! I have nothing bad to say, and the only reason I'm giving it a 4 star is because it's a little pricey and they don't give refunds! So I just hope the ARMY keeps us here long enough for the kids to finish their sessions! Sincerely , H.L.
We are extremely happy with the SASA organization, staff and schedules. As working parents, we have always been able to find classes and days that fit our family needs. The option of attending different pools is a plus! Our 3 boys (10, 8 and almost 4) have been enrolled for 1 1/2 years, and with each session, they improve and set new goals. I appreciate their instructor's discipline, control of their classes, punctuality and feedback. We have had the pleasure of working with Nikia, Cory, Savannah and Isaac. They all bring a personal style to the pool, while remaining structured and consistent with the SASA method. We will be a SASA family for years to come and thank you for your dedication. Without you, our boys would not have progressed so quickly and confidently! ---The Immenschuh Family
