The only reason I've been taking my children to Saf-T Swim in the past year and a half is because I haven't been able to find a place that offers private swimming lessons. I feel like we've been putting up with their lack of professionalism long enough and will never go back. I STRONGLY recommend against all of Saf-T Swim locations. I have tried a few and they're all the same.

First, I don't know on how many occasions they never notified us when the lesson is cancelled. Sometimes due to snow days, teacher's cancellation or pool clean up. Regardless of the reasons, they never called me.

Second, the hygiene is appalling. Swimming instructors would drink their coffee or soda while they??re teaching the children. They literally leave their drinks right next to the pool. They would slurp on their drinks while they??re still in the swimming pool talking to children. I understand that people may do that in their own swimming pools but this is supposed to be a professional environment, not to mention the possibilities of spilled drinks. They really cannot wait???

Third, aside from the drinks, sometimes children have accidents in the pool eg. vomiting or #2. Sometimes they would vacate the pool, sometimes they won??t. I??ve been there during a number of occasions when all of these happened. I really wonder what kind of measurement they take to decide how much vomit of feces is enough to warrant the pool clean up. The last time we were there, they asked everyone to leave the pool after a kid threw up. However, they told the parents whose kids were going to start their lessons 10 minutes later that it??s ok for them to go back in. I??m not an expert in pool cleaning but is that really enough time?

Last, when I??m paying over $1/minute for the lessons, I expect them to be punctual but I??ve had a lot but when you think that the lesson only lasts 30 minutes, not to mention how much it costs and it happens every week. Everything adds up.

The whole office is run by bunch of very unprofessional irresponsible young people. When Saf-T Swim was looking for swimming instructors, their ad. simply said ??Do you want to have fun swimming all year round and still get paid? That??s exactly what you get at Saf-T Swim?a bunch of young kids who are there just to have fun on your dime.

saftswim has taught my 2 year to save herself. last summer my child slipped in and without hesitation turned around and grabbed the wall. as for the instructors barely being out of high school that may be true, but they are the ones with the most energy and enthusiastic personalities. the pool area/ deck is very hot but that is for the swimmers. you need to remember that it feels totally different if you are in the pool and if you are like me and my husband who started our child when she was 3 months old you would want it to be that warm. we live on an island surrounded by water and knowing how to swim is extremely important so thank you saf-t-swim

My son has taken lessons there and it was Great...the instructors are young but the ones there were patient fun and very professional with handling my son (who's autistic) and other kids I seen..It's been a year since we been but starting back this week-end because I wouldn't trust my son anywhere else at this point..you can watch the lessons behind a window and they welcome your advice and concerns...because of the business they get..sometimes it gets crazy because they have more people than instructors..but what does that tell you...

This place is terrible and I would not recommend taking your kids to swim here. The instructors are all barely out of high school and not very patient. The locker rooms are not very clean. The pool deck is cluttered. And it is always feels about 100 degrees in the pool area because they do not pay for air conditioning on the deck. I was trying to get a lifeguard certification here, but I instead went to the town training program.

Clean, well maintained indoor pool. Trained and experienced professional life guards and swimming instructors make learning to swim safe and fun for children and adults. Located in an L-shaped strip-shopping center. There is plenty of available parking. They do a nice job with Birthday parties. We have attended two here and the children always enjoy themselves.

We have not taken swimming lessons here but we have been to two parties and have had our own here. The kids love it, especially if its a winter birthday. The price is a little steep considering you have to bring everything but the pizza yourself, lug it in,set it up, and clean it up. But the kids have fun and that's all that matters.
