Welcome!

Located in Valley Village, California, The Jim Herrick Swim School is the longest-standing, established swim school in the area.

Swim lessons are the single most important precaution a parent can take in mitigating the chance of drowning. Fatal drowning remains the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for children ages 1 to 14 years. At The Jim Herrick Swim School, our mission is to minimize the number of drownings that occur in our community with outstanding water safety instruction, flexible and convenient scheduling, and a friendly, family-oriented atmosphere that delivers a truly valuable experience. While many swim schools focus on survival-swimming techniques in the water, at Jim Herrick’s, we teach meaningful water skills that transcend and will stick with our students after they move on from our school.

We offer the following types of lessons on a year-round basis:

  • Learn-to-Swim
  • Water-Safety Maintenance
  • Beginning & Advanced Competitive Strokes
  • Infant
  • Adult
  • Special Needs
