TigerSharks Swim Academy

Learn-to-Swim at the Dwares JCC with TigerSharks Swim Academy! Our swim program utilizes an exceptional education system designed around swimming fundamentals and an emphasis on water safety. As young as 4 months, children learn to swim at their own pace. After a free evaluation, swimmers are assigned to a swim level based on the child’s personal needs.

Student lessons, which focus on correct body positioning and alignment, are taught by trained instructors. We monitor improvement and use positive reinforcement and fun exercises. As swimmers advance, they participate in safety tests to demonstrate their proficiency in their ability and technique. TigerSharks Swim Academy is year-round, and students may join at any time. Every swimmer must register for a free initial level evaluation.

Please contact Emily O’Connor at 401.421.4111 ext. 162 to schedule your free 10-minute swim evaluation before registering .


Group lessons are 30 minutes long and we strongly suggest students take at least one class per week, year-round. Consistency is a key factor leading to proficiency and gaining confidence in the water.
• Parent/Tot lessons (maximum: 4 per class)
• Group (maximum: 4 per class)
• Stroke advancement (maximum: 6 per class, upper two levels in program)
• Private lessons
