SwimJim: Happy, Healthy, Safer Swimmers. For maximum safety, enjoyment, confidence, and peace of mind, swimming and water safety skills should start as young as possible. SwimJim offers programs starting at 2 months through adult. The parent-child programs help children learn to socialize and introduce water safety, gross motor skills, breath control, and peer motivation—all wonderful for children's self esteem. SwimJim’s learn-to-swim programs develop effective safety habits and techniques in the water, such as back floating and gross motor locomotion.
