From the right start to a strong finish, we teach children and adults to swim correctly so they are safe, strong and confident in the water.



For more than 36 years, Saf-T-Swim has been teaching Long Island children lifesaving swimming skills. We’re proud to be Long Island’s most established and respected swim school. We’ve taught generations of Long Island families to swim and will continue to be committed to that mission for years to come.

Our Philosophy

Our swim lessons are based on a fun loving, child centered, learning environment. We pride ourselves in working with your child at their own pace, while building a lasting relationship based on trust. Saf-T-Swim is focused on creating a loving relationship with your child, as well as you, and your family so a life-long , life-saving relationship with water can be attained.

Kids Learn Best When They Are Comfortable

We take your child’s emotional, physical, cognitive, and psychological development into account. We want your child to become comfortable with the water so they can instinctively react to a water emergency or situation in a positive way. Our focus is to create an environment where children can learn to love and respect the water.

Nearly 4 Decades of Success

Hundreds of thousands of families have come through our schools and learned the life skill of swimming. This track record speaks volumes about our curriculum and our approach to learning.

Our Team

Our Teachers are deeply committed to our mission. We hire and train only the brightest and friendliest teachers on the Island. The long-term retention of our instructors is something many other swim schools marvel at. It all is based on our collective belief that swimming is a life skill and children must learn to love and respect the water.
