Lenny Krayzelburg Swim Academy – Chicago

Your exclusive swim school at JCC Chicago!

The Lenny Krayzelburg Swim Academy (LKSA) teaches and inspires children to be water safe. Since its inception, LKSA has held thousands of swimming lessons for kids who’ve learned water safety and the importance of knowing how to swim. As they learn skills, they build knowledge, gain confidence and feel safe in and around water.

Using the SwimRight™ Method and the swim-float-swim technique as the foundation, children progress to the ultimate safety competency. Step-by-step, students build proficiency through levels that teach kid to swim through all four important strokes; freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.

Lenny Krayzelburg, 4-time Olympic gold medal swim medalist, developed this program based on best practices and the most advanced thinking in the field.

JCC Chicago’s low teacher to child ratio gives each child the personal attention they need to be successful.

How to get started

The evaluation process

Each child’s swimming skills are evaluated prior to level placement in the program. Evaluations are a great opportunity to meet swim instructors and ask questions about the program.

Upon completion of your child’s evaluation, contact the LKSA office to register your child for the lesson time and day that best meets your needs. Your child will be registered for one class per week unless other arrangements are made to swim more often. Teacher student ratios are maintained at 1:4 for group lessons, 1:8 for Parent/Tot lessons, and 1:6 for advanced group and Parent/Tot, for maximum safety and teaching excellence.

Upon mastery of each level and skills, your child will move up to the next level. Contact the LKSA office to confirm your ongoing lesson schedule as you move through the levels.
