Swim Method

Our Learn-to-Swim program features eight levels in the SwimRight® Method that was developed by Lenny Krayzelburg and his staff. SwimRight® is a sophisticated, result driven approach that has evolved from other methods over a period of 40 years, and is a synthesis of the best philosophies and most advanced thinking in the field. This method is based on progressive learning techniques, so that within their first set of lessons, children greatly improve their chances to save themselves if they purposely or accidentally enter into any body of water.

The SwimRight® curriculum uses the swim-float-swim technique as its foundation. All students are taught first to have an instinct to roll over onto their backs to breathe, which provides them with the ultimate tool for saving themselves in a time of need. Additionally, this approach provides the proper body positioning for learning the strokes. Step by step, building upon these core mechanics, students develop impeccable form in the four competitive strokes.

Award System

The SwimRight® Method has eight levels of learning. Each level has a fun name incorporated so that each child belongs to their very own level in the academy. Whether a Splasher, a Floater, a Kicker, a Roller, a Streamliner, a Freestyler, a Glider, or a Flyer each child in the program will collect along the way a color coded swim cap to help inspire them to move up to the next level.

Additionally, each child in the program will receive their very own student progress book to help them keep track of all the skills they learn, their achievements, their accomplishments, and their goals that they have achieved throughout the program. As they venture through each level, they will also collect a sticker for each skill that they learn.

Survival Test

Besides learning various skills in each level, our students experience something very unique to our program, the survival tests. In the survival tests we provide both the parents and the children with the confidence of knowing that their child can survive in a real-life situation. This is a very unique and valued part of the SwimRight® Method and our program. We are proud to say that we truly put our teachings to the test!

Our core purpose is to teach and inspire children to be water safe!

LKSA is an impressive institution. It's an understatement to say it's a well-oiled machine. They focus on safety with their swimmers, and our 5-month-old loves her classes. This is one of the only places in LA that will teach infants, and they do a great job. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. We love it here!  Stephanie W

 We are very pleased with the clean and modern facilities, well-designed program of instruction, and emphasis on safety.  The progressive program of advancement (as signified by swim cap color) really works for my kids, who are very goal-oriented.  My children each take private lessons once a week.  Our instructors are very dedicated, conscientious and caring.  They make sure that the child has truly mastered a particular swim skill before earning their achievement sticker.  Andrew B

OMG!!!! LOVE this place :)) My baby and I go to the infant swim class and it's so much fun. The instructors are all super cool, the place is clean, reasonably priced, the water is uber warm (90 degrees) and best of all saline (not chlorine). The highlight of our week!!!  Ed F

I personally love LK Swim Academy! They have wonderful and friendly staff working there, plus a clean, large pool. I enjoy going there with my daughter and son. My kids love their coaches, they are sweet, kind, and very professional! Lusya S

Lenny K academy offers extremely talented and amazing instructors who work well with children at all ages and skill levels. We highly recommend this swim school. It has boosted our daughter's self esteem and confidence to excel at this sport. We have really enjoyed our lessons and have been going for 5 years now. My daughters (ages 5 and 7) now swim better than me!!!  Melissa M
