Swimming is a valuable skill to learn, especially in the northwest where water is abundant. Swimmers Lane is a family run business in Renton, off Lake Youngs Road, one block off Petrovitsky, off Jones Road, by Route 18 and 169/Maple Valley Highway.
The water is warmer than most pools, 92 degrees as opposed to 85. Classes for level 1/2 are 3 kids max. It costs $15 for a 30 minute class. At Swimmers Lane, the students are taught the proper technique of swimming. The teachers are patient. Visit them at ( http://www.swimmerslane.com/index.html )
Rev (12/06): I have spoken to the other parents and here is a negative about this school: There really isn't a formal end of the classes, so, there realy isn't a formal way to move your child to the next level, unless you press them. As such, I don't think they are really results-oriented as another competing school in the area. Unlike what they say on their web site, a child can be stuck on one level, say level 2, for a whole year!
In addition, they took away the make-up class option. So if your child missed two classes, for a flu for example, on a four week month, the remaining 2 1/2 hour class session are now $30 a piece. Do the math...
