Angelenos with a passion for water safety 

As quintessential new parents, we [Karan & Shannon] were inspired and gobsmacked by the birth of our daughter.

We dreamed of how we'd share the love of water with her before she came along. 

As with all things parenting, our expectations were completely different from reality. Her safety and comfort quickly surfaced as our most important values.

With 15+ years of teaching kids and adults how to swim, surf, rock climb, and compete in triathlons, our greatest strength in teaching lied in becoming parents ourselves. We created an approach that helped us meet her where she was at developmentally, while taking into account the needs that our lifestyle presented.

She conveyed her needs to us, and we listened; your kids have their own unique needs; your style of parenting is your own. We honor that, and are excited to learn from you as you learn from us.


On land or in water, we live out our values.


Learning to swim is one of the first big milestones of achievement in a child's life. With this in mind, we aim to prepare them for a lifetime of seeing challenges as opportunities. Swimmers take the positive experience gained from learning in the water and apply it to endless new adventures and environments. 


A child's developing brain is proven to respond best to play. Our curriculum is designed to help swimmers develop social and cognitive skills by having fun!


We're right in your backyard. Sign up for the elevated experience of a professional swim school without leaving the comfort of your home.
