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.

The DACA Difference

DACA instructors are trained on site, in the classroom and in the pool, for not less than 30 hours of intensive training. Our deck supervisors assist our teachers, provide customer service and ensure 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 three students per class for Rainbow-White levels and four students per class for Purple-Gold levels with private and semi- private lessons available. Parent child classes can consist of up to four students and four adults. Classes can begin at three months of age.

DACA offers an accelerated learn to swim-program during the summer, year round Splash Classes (drop in classes), and a Pre-Competitive program that includes nights and weekends. We also offer specialty programs for adults and for children with special needs.

The DACA Pre-Competitive Program is an introductory program designed to improve stroke and turn technique in preparation for the DACA Competitive Team.  Small class sizes of no more than seven swimmers of similar ability allow for first-class instruction that is both focused and personalized.  Instruction in the DACA Pre-Competitive Program provides a technical skill base, igniting a love of the water and inspiring our swimmers to continue on in all levels of the DACA Competitive Team.


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