About Our Swim Academy

About Our School
The JCC of Louisville is proud to be launching our formal partnership with the Lenny Krayzelburg Swim Academy, bringing this premier swim instruction program to Louisville. As soon as we learned of the opportunity to replicate Lenny’s successful California program, we jumped at the chance to work with him. We are confident that many more children, including young toddlers, will become water safe and will learn to swim correctly, a skill that will be theirs to enjoy forever.

SwimRight Method
The SwimRight Method is a curriculum that teaches swimming through the use of a swim-float-swim technique as its foundation. We focus on providing children with the confidence and skills to be safe in and around the water. All the students are first taught to have an instinct to roll over onto their backs to breathe. Not only does this provide the proper body positioning for learning the strokes later on but, it gives children the ultimate tool for saving themselves in a time of need.

While other swim methods teach children to breathe by lifting their heads up, we have found that this only makes them tired. If a child can relax, rest on their back and float they have a much better chance of survival.

From these basic skills we take students all the way through learning the strokes, from elementary freestyle or “big arms” to breaststroke and butterfly.

SwimRight Method Curriculum Award System
The SwimRight Method has six levels of learning. Each level has a fun name attached to it, so that each child belongs to their very own level in the academy. Whether a Splasher, a Floater, a Kicker, a Streamliner, a Freestyler or a Flyer all students in the program will receive color coded swim caps along the way to recognize their achievements and inspire them to move up to the next level.

Also, each student in the program gets his or her own swim book to help keep track of their progress. As they move up from one level to another they receive ribbons recognizing graduation from a particular level.

Survival Tests Curriculum
Besides learning various skills in each level kids pass survival tests. This is a very unique and valued part of the SwimRight Method and our swim school. In the survival tests we provide parents and the children the confidence of knowing that their child can survive in a real-life situation. We are proud to say that we truly put our teaching to the test!
