At Sharkies, SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY. We specialize in 1 on 1 attention with our students. We feel that having private attention and focus will help our students learn the fundamentals and master the skills of water survival in the most efficient manner, opposed to sharing time with another student. Once our students reach a personal level of confidence and comfort, we then transition and expand their skill set to master all swim strokes.
Don't be surprised if we ask for the student to come to their lesson completely dressed with tennis shoes, jeans and a coat for our infamous "safety lesson"!
This is one of the many aspects that set us apart and make us truly unique!
