What makes us different:  

Bridgewater Swim Academy focuses on one-on-one instruction, which is the most effective style of instruction. While students are allowed to develop at their own pace, we place emphasis on quickly mastering safety skills and excellent swimming techniques. By encouraging our students to attend multiple lessons each week, they are able to practice, reinforce, and retain their skills and advance at a faster rate.

In addition, all of Bridgewater’s highly-trained and certified instructors have been or currently are competitive swimmers. They stress correct technique and enjoy teaching students of all ages proper skills that enable them to safely enjoy the many benefits of swimming.

Our new State-Of-The-Art facility offers a 20 yard pool with water temp at a warm 90 degrees. We have found that our students learn best when they are comfortable, therefore, our pool is heated year round to keep our swimmers warm and engage. We also offer family changing rooms with showers where parents can quickly and easily assist their children with changing into or out of their swimsuits.
