DACA Swim School

The DACA Swim School was founded in 1996. Our primary purpose is to teach infants, children and adults to swim properly.

To that end, DACA has developed a proven method of teaching that ensures skill development, a love of the water and a healthy respect for water safety.

DACA instructors are trained on site, in the classroom and in the pool, for not less than 40 hours of intensive training. Our deck supervisors assist our teachers, provide customer service and insure safety on the pool deck. The Swim School deck staff is certified in both CPR and First Aid.

Our state of the art DACA Swim Center offers two pools heated to 90 degrees at all times with adjoining locker rooms.

There is a maximum of four students per class with private and semi- private lessons available. Parent child classes can consist of up to six students and six adults. Classes can begin at three months of age.

DACA offers an accelerated Summer Splash learn to swim program, a week-end Pre-Competitive program and specialty programs for handicapped or arthritic students and classes for children with Autistic challenges.

The award winning DACA Swim School has been the premier swim school in the Bay Area for fifteen years. For quality, time tested instruction at any age, there is no better choice than the DACA Swim School.
