Get of the swim of things when we reach a “new normal”

Until further notice, Making Waves Milwaukee is suspending its swim lessons.
We are concerned about the health and welfare of our swimmers and volunteer instructors. Given the nature of our program, we cannot guarantee maintaining a 1-2 meter “social distance” between individuals. Additionally, due to the health status of many of our swimmers, we are concerned about their immune system’s ability to fight off this new virus.
We will plan to resume our lessons once the concern over the transmission of COVID-19 has resolved and we reach a new normal.

From 0 to 25 in 6 lessons!

Learn to swim with experience

Using a proven method, we teach adults how to swim. If you are completely unfamiliar with how to swim, we will teach you. If you have some swimming skills, but want to progress to swimming effectively, we will teach you.

Our founders have over 60 years of experience teaching adults how to swim competently, progressing from not being able to make 5 yards down the pool to swimming a mile in an hour workout. All this can be done in 7 active sessions.

We recognize swimming can be scary. We have learned to help you manage that fear and focus your attention on building skills. We believe in meeting our swimmers where they are and building their skills to be able to master important swimming skills.
