Learning to swim is about more than techniques. It’s also about learning to love water. For kids, so they are excited to learn swimming. For parents, who will see their confidence rise around water. We’re excited to bring our proven approach, used to teach hundreds of thousands of swimmers in Minneapolis/St. Paul and Chicago since 1993, to the greater St. Louis area.
Foss Swim School was built on the idea that learning to swim well is important for safety, a big part of healthy child development, and a gateway to a lot of fun. At FOSS, we teach swimming, nothing else. Our teachers are selected for their ability to connect with kids, and trained in our custom curriculum, crafted over 25 years by our co-founder, Jon Foss.
It takes more than a single session. Like any school, success comes from progression and repetition. It’s why we operate differently than other swim programs, with quarter-long classes where kids are grouped by age and ability so they learn alongside peers.
