The H.E.S. Learn To Swim Program is Canarsie’s largest provider of year round swimming lessons for students of all ages and skill levels. Our experienced American Red Cross certified instructors are dedicated to teach all students to be safe and proficient in the water. After students progress and develop through our introductory swim school, they then have the opportunity to try out for our Jr. & Sr. Swim Teams.

All students are arranged by age and skill level and placed into small groups to maximize individual, one-on-one attention. Classes are held in our newly renovated, heated Olympic sized pool. If you are a beginner or a swimmer who would like to improve their abilities, then the H.E.S. Swimming School is the place for you.


The H.E.S. Swim School offers one to one and small group instruction for all ages and levels. Learn swim basics or refine your technique with one of our certified instructors. Drowning prevention and water safety are essential elements of our private lessons curriculum, with elements of water safety knowledge and skills integrated into every level. The H.E.S. Swim School‘s professional Water Safety Instructors are highly motivated to work with you on your specific needs at any level in your journey to become a proficient swimmer.
