My twelve year-old sons are on a competitive swim team and Chris was great for them. He taught them all kinds of techniques to improve their strokes, and gave them tips I would have never thought of. When I asked them how it went, they said it was amazing. Well done!
Coach Chris is great!
Amazing job and attention to details for Maddy and Alex.
McKina does a great job every time. Trying to keep teenagers moving during the pandemic -- she give them a great workout with helpful constructive criticism. Cannot say enough good things!
Our first lesson with Ashley and she did great with an initial assessment and Latin four some goals for our 12 yr old.
Another great lesson from a very understanding and seasoned coach/trainer. Looking forward to swimming like a dolphin someday with Coach Nancy Bailey.
We have had 6 lessons with Alex S and she is amazing!!!! We can’t believe how far along our 5 year old is now.
Ashley was so awesome, we made an error in booking, she understood our mistake and made our experience a happy one. Both our girls got to swim and had a great instructor Maddy. Thank You.
Great first lesson, my daughter was nervous but Alexander her feel very comfortable....thank you!
Breast stroke already is looking stronger after two sessions with Nate. Some really talented and thorough coaches here.
Coach alex has encouraged my son to swim. He now asks that we bring him for extra swim time during the week. She has taken a kid who dreaded swimming and made him look forward to it
We had our second lesson with Nate, and he is fantastic with my 4 year olds son. The facility is unbelievably gorgeous and state of the art.
Coach McKina was kind and encouraging. She offered our swimmer so very practical tips and feedback to improve his stroke and race techniques. He was very happy!!! We’ll be booking more private instruction.
The swim lessons were great and my son will be signing up for the Stroke Academy. The instructor was caught in traffic but another instructor jumped in a facilitated until he got here. Both coaches were very positive and I could see my son improving instantly. The overall experience from the time we signed up has been first class and professional.
My daughter thought Alex was a great teacher. She was patient, while helping her to improve her swimming strokes.She can't wait until her next lesson.
Nancy was amazing definitely recommend her for beginners swimming lessons. Will definitely come back for another.
Very good instruction. I learned much in just one day. Ms. Bailey's simple and direct instructions made it so easy and fun! Booking my next lesson today! !
Coach Alex is amazing!!
MCkina is great with my son , she has the patience to teach. She is so sweet with my son. And he really enjoys going to the lessons.
This was my daughter’s second lesson with Coach Chris and she loves him. “He explains things really well mom, and he’s really nice.” Thank you!
Coach Carter is helping my daughter to improve her strokes and her coaching has given her confidence.
Coach alex was able to accomplish in lesson 1 what we have never accomplished before. My son put his head under water and said he loved it. I don’t know what she did but it’s amazing.
Private swim lesson for my son was great. The instructor provided clear, constructive feedback and set realistic goals for my son to work towards in improving his swimming. Highly recommend!
The St. James facility is beautiful - very nice and clean. The staff, are very nice and welcoming. My first lesson with Nancy, was awesome. I felt very comfortable and safe around her. There was no judging and her tactics in teaching you how to breath, I already noticed a difference in me - great skills. I am looking forward to continuing my lessons with Nancy for as along as she will allow. I feel confident that I am in good hands. Thank you, Nancy!
My daughter reports that, during he lesson with Coach Chris, she had "fun" and "learned a ton." Thank you! Love this facility!
The private session here is definitely a HIT! We see great dynamic between Coach Nate and our son Jason with 100% of attention and detailed instruction! We spot an outstanding coach right away and this is the place to do it! Thanks
Mrs. Mckina did a great job with our son, very dedicated, patient, explain everything to us before class. Our son enjoy his class and soon we will see him swimming like fish!!!. Thank you Mrs. Mckina for your commitment.
Nancy is so patient and kind, as well as experienced! Love being back in the water! Thank you
I can see clear progress in my daughter’s technique after every lesson with Alex
Both my kids find McKina so helpful with their stroke development.
Great session to help prep for first 50 fly in meet this weekend! Learned a lot about small adjustments.
Coach Chris was terrific for my son Westen. He felt so confident with Chris's teaching and is excited to continue his lessons in the coming weeks.
Coach Alex is awesome! She did amazing with my Autistic son. Grateful we found a great swim coach who is patient and understanding.
Nancy was awesome. I am a beginner, but what a previous class had taken a whole semester to learn and I still did not get, Nancy was able to teach me in one short lesson and boost my confidence. I will definitely be back.
McKina is great with helping my 13 year old improve his strokes.
The best swimming lesson with Coach Marye . Sh is the best!
Chris is a great teacher. Emma is now diving! We appreciate him and all the extra things he does like take videos of her progress so she can refine her strokes. Thanks Chris!
Coach mckinna is great! She’s so patient with Camille. My kid actually looks forward to her lessons!!! :)
We love everything about the St.James Specially our private swimming lessons!
Coach Nancy is Great!
5 stars I loved my lesson. Coach was so positive. I felt instant improvement!
Nancy was great, I needed some technical corrections specifically for Triathlon and she did it right away. Francisco
Coach McKina is amazing with our 2 year old...over the past couple lesson our 2year olds confidence has grown tremendously in the water!
Excellent! My daughter Avonlea loves working with Ms. Mckina and is learning and improving with each lesson.
Our son learned a new way of freestyle - he now uses what he learned for shorter distances. Great observations and communication from Coach Chris!
Great lesson. My kid enjoyed it!
We’ve been with Jessie for 3 lessons now. She’s been great with my 9-year old daughter. Definitely does a good job adjusting to the personality of the kiddo and is helpful in getting them to set goals and work toward it.
Very helpful & knowledgeable!
Coach Jessie is amazing!
Coach Chris is very thorough and my eight year old daughter feels very comfortable with him and his style of teaching. Thanks Chris!
Coach Chris is great, he has a calm demeanor and established a great rapport with our five year old!
Coach Chris was awesome! Already signed up for more lessons!
So happy to be with Coach Chris today! The girls had a great time and we saw immediate improvements!
Another great lesson! The facility is great and our coach is wonderful. Our 7 y/o son looks forward to it every week.
Coach Carter is one of the best coaches I have ever worked with.
Coach McKeena is fantastic with my 8 year old!
Coach Elizabeth is just simply fantastic!
Coach Carter is terrific. She breaks down technique in a way kids can grasp.
Elizabeth is awesome!
Coach Elizabeth was fantastic. Welcoming and enthusiastic, my daughter enjoyed it so much that after the lesson, she wanted to stay in the pool to continue to practice.
Coach Suz is such a great coach kind. She was so patient and even went out of her way to teach my son to swim. My son had a great time for sure!
Marye is one of the best swim instructors/coaches I have come across. She worked proficiently to refine my daughter’s swim mechanics and made it fun too. Highly recommend Marye to any one looking for swimming instruction across all skill levels.
Elizabeth has a great way about her with my daughter. Love working with her. Thank you
Excellent first class provided by Maddy
Coach Elizabeth is awesome!
Coach Suz is amazing. My girls love her. She is very informative and positive with our kiddos.
Coach Elizabeth’s style and methods are so effective for my 10 year old son! He had two sessions with her recently to prepare for this weekend’s meet. They paid off - he dropped time and won his heat. Big milestone for him! She’s so supportive and positive. She makes sure my son knows what to do after the sessions to burn those strategies into his brain.
Coach Aleksandr is just wonderful!
I just wrote a review but did not mention that my coach is Sux. She is GREAT.
Feeling quite happy with my classes. My coach beside being very knowledgeable in swimming techniques have a great sense of humor and I DO look forward to my next class. She is GREAT
My youngest had a lesson with Coach McKina. My wife and I could not be happier. The Coach kept her in the water happy and having fun for the full 30 mins. Very pleased and can’t wait for more lessons!
Coach Suz is great teaching my 4 year old son to swim. He’s an energetic beginning swimmer with limited attention span. She’s patient, fun, and keeps him learning.
Great lesson! And super facility.
Coach Suz has helping me a lot with my swimming fears and her techniques/instructions are clear and simple. I do appreciated her praises and kindness. The best!!!
My child went for private lessons and the instructor Coach Suz was really great, top notch. And the Director Ashley was great answering all of my questions and setting us up for lessons. As for the swim area, it is a beautifully designed pool with above deck bleacher seating to see the entire pool. However, the shower area was not as nice: not enough hot water and not nearly enough toiletry supplies across the board.
Ben was wonderful with Charlie (Pre-K). Charlie looks forward to swim lessons every time!
Elise and Vincent really enjoyed the instructor! Thank you.
Coach Suz did an amazing job with my son.
My coach was great. Very patient,kind,and understood well my limitations.I really liked her.
My son has really gotten over his fear of water and he loves going to swim with Suz. So grateful for all she does. Amazing coach.
Great lesson! He is on his way to the Boy Scout Swimming test.
Coach Elizabeth is excellent!She not only made me trust the water but made me trust myself in water. I highly recommend here!
Suz was excellent! She’s so good with kids. My son was crying and scared to get in the pool, she was very patient and made learning fun. Can’t wait to bring him back. Also love the facility. Wonderful experience.
Thank you! Mark had a wonderful lesson with Elizabeth.
Coach Maddy is great with our 1st grade daughter.
Marye was wonderful! Really knows how to pack in a lot of teaching and work for my daughter in just 30 minutes!
Ms. Alissa was excellent with my daughter Skyler. We were very happy with the class :)
Very helpful. I feel encouraged that I'll finally be able to accomplish my goal of swimming with confidence!
Excellent coaching. Both kids had been out of the water for several months but this was a good workout.
My daughter has had three private lessons with coach Jessie and has improved a lot. Coach Jessie has been great with her, in teaching her how to improve her strokes so she can join the team. Highly recommend her!
Ben was great!
What a great experience. The coaching staff are all consummate professionalsl who quickly identify your or your child preferred learning method and leverage it to his fullest. All of the lessons with the staff have been rewarding experiences. Rewarding, in that I can see my daughters self confidence grow, and we can see her swimming improve. Their professionalism and care has in a way professionalized my daughter. It is a wonderful experience witnessing my child’s mere interest become a passion. I credit the coaching staff and my daughters hard work with the transformation. Coach Elizabeth, Coach Ben, McKinna, and Alexander you guys are amazing. I can’t imagine entrusting my child’s swim instruction to anyone else. Thank you!
I had a swim lesson with Coach Elizabeth. She was knowledgeable and patient and adapted quickly to meet my specific needs.
So lucky to have coach Elizabeth training me. Highly recommended :)
This was my daughter's first private swim lesson at St. James. Coach Jesse was great with her. Coach Jesse evaluated her swim strokes and worked with our daughter on where she needed the most improvement. We are looking forward to her next lesson.
It was a great session. Looking forward for more
Our two your old daughter had her first lesson with Alexsander and it was a wonderful experience. He was patient, relaxed, and inviting, which created the environment our child needed to feel comfortable.
Coach Aleksandr was just wonderful with our four year old!!
Elizabeth knows her stuff ! Very supportive professional coaching style!
Jessie was fantastic. Made my daughter feel really comfortable. She was super scared for her first lesson, but is stoked for the next one!!
Coach Jessie is great and I love that she is an actual competitive swimmer and can give my child special tips and tricks to improve her techniques for meets.
Very knowledgeable and easy to understand
My son had his first lesson with coach Jessie and loved her! She is kind and patient but determined and an excellent coach! I just signed him up with her the rest of the month and January!
Excellent experience for our 2 year old!
Coach Elizabeth is an amazing coach! She has great intuition about what each of my kids (8 and 11 years old) need to work on and does an awesome job of explaining what she wants each of them to do. Very encouraging, enthusiastic and experienced coach.
Sam is an amazing swim coach. I am a beginner and he has helped me become comfortable in the water and gain confidence so far. I look forward to the rest of our sessions
Thanks Coach Elizabeth!
After slow progress in group learn to swim classes, we brought our son here. He was afraid to let go of the side and held his nose when he went under water. Two months of private lessons twice a week and he has mastered two strokes and learned the basics of the other two. He can swim lengths, dive from the side, and is completely comfortable in the water. Can’t recommend Coach Elizabeth more highly. She is great with kids and knows her stuff.
Other Vincent and Elise had excellent classes!
Marye is a wonderful swim instructor. Thanks to the St. James for recruiting her. We will be back.
Elizabeth is a great swim instructor.
The teacher was caring and wonderful.
Our first experience we had with Miss Elizabeth was great! She made my daughter feel comfortable immediately and actually convinced her to do more than she’d ever done in the water. We look forward to working with her more.
Coach Nitza is awesome! Girls had great lessons and enjoyed very much!
Our seven year old son has been taking swimming lessons from coach Elizabeth, who is definitely a shining star in the St. James facility. She's skilled, kind, fun and encouraging!
