Children of all ages learn to swim at the newly-opened Seal Swim School located in Riverview.

Rainy days don’t bother Seal Swim School owner Micha Seal, who has opened her newest location in Riverview. Her learn-to-swim programs are offered in a state-of-the-art 70’ x 25’ indoor pool whose water temperature is kept at a constant 90 degrees.

That’s not the only benefit of Seal’s indoor pools.

An advanced sanitizing system uses ultraviolet light to eliminate micro-organisms. A dehumidification system keeps humidity levels stable for optimal comfort. Twenty-four-hour system monitoring alerts maintenance if the water balance needs adjusting. Water cycles though the enormous filter every 90 minutes.
“I spare no expense for the water quality of my pools,” said Seal.

Located at 10459 in the Lowe’s-anchored Riverview Towne Centre shopping center, the team at Seal Swim School are the leading water safety educators in the area who have been teaching children and adults to swim for more than 40 years.

Its instructors are certified in CPR, First Aid and water safety instructor and lifeguard training.

Seal said the continuous education about the latest learn-to-swim trends gives them an edge on the competition. “My instructors receive in-service training constantly and my managers and I go to conferences a couple times a year,” she said.

It was at a conference that back floating was emphasized as an important technique children need to master when learning to swim. It has now become a key component in her program.

Small group lessons low four to one student to teacher ratios. Private lessons are offered. Classes are broken up by age and ability. Classes offered include Water Babies (newborn to five months old), Parent/Tot classes (six to twenty-four months old) and group lessons for ages two and older. Private lessons are also offered for children aged six months and older.

An air-conditioned parent viewing area allows for parents to comfortably watch their child learn to swim. Changing rooms are also available for children not wearing their suit to class or those who want to change into street clothes after class.

It’s never too late to learn to swim; adult classes are also offered. Instruction is available from beginners to those hoping to improve their stroke techniques.

Seal Swim School’s hours are Monday – Thursday 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. Fridays it will be open for registrations only.
