Swim Lessons


These levels are the foundation of your child’s swim experience! In all the years of teaching and directing aquatic programming, I truly believe that this is the stage and age where your child will learn how to feel confident and comfortable in the water. It is very important to make sure you spend as much time in these levels allowing your child to build his/her self – esteem and independence. I have seen too many children moving on to the “next level” but developmentally not ready and still having anxiety. Vibrant Waters is a child center swim program that adapts and nurtures the child’s personal safety and growth and teaches the child to develop and maintain a healthy respect for the water.

Swim Program

Our program instructions are based on the six levels in American Red Cross lesson program

“Michelle’s an excellent coach, experienced and passionate about swimming!”

“As a competitive swimmer, teacher, and diver I am always impressed by Vibrant waters attention to detail and consummate professionalism.”

“Michelle has a gift when it comes to teaching new swimmers. It doesn't matter if it's a child or an adult, you will swim without fear.”

“Michelle has been an amazing swim instructor. She has a real gift for teaching children and our kids love going to lessons.”

“Michelle is amazing! Our daughter took lessons for two years prior to taking lessons with Vibrant Waters but was always afraid to go underwater. After one lesson with Michelle, not only did she want to ALWAYS go under water, but she was “swimming” in the deep end with just a noodle and a dumbbell. 


Also, she had a bad experience in the pool while on vacation and was afraid to get back into the pool. Michelle was patient with her and consistent for several weeks and now our daughter won’t stop bugging us about going swimming. In her words, “I can’t wait to go to swim lessons!”
