Goldfish Swim School


Goldfish Swim School is proud to provide state-of-the-art aquatic facilities that are dedicated to indoor swim classes and programs for children, ages 4 months and up. From Jump Start Clinics to our competitive team known as Swim Force, we’re committed to helping your child develop important life skills so he or she can make waves in life.

Goldfish has implemented enhanced health and safety protocols.

We understand that, as a parent, your child’s safety is of utmost importance. At Goldfish Swim School, we believe that your swimmers deserve to be in the best hands at all times, which is why our instructors undergo an extensive hiring process and comprehensive training period. In addition, we always keep our classes small and ensure a max student-to-teacher ratio of 3:1 with social distancing between swimmers and are offering a variety of private and semi-private lessons as well.

At Aqua Duks Swim School our mission is to enrich life – we strive for much more than teaching your child to swim. Our curriculum is designed to increase safety, confidence, and independence, all of which will continue to aid your child as they grow.

To ensure your child’s success, our lessons are taught in a private setting – one instructor to one student and our students typically attend lessons at the same day and time with the same instructor each week. The private lesson allows our instructors to cater to each child’s unique skill and comfort level and the consistency of our lessons leads to expedited relationship building and ultimately faster progress.

Our curriculum develops the fundamental skills of breath control and buoyancy first which allows children to self-rescue and creates a foundation upon which our students learn to become completely independent swimmers. In addition, we teach the proper technique for all four strokes and prepare our students for swim teams or other water sports. Our instructors go through rigorous training programs to learn to work with all students—infants, toddlers, school aged children, those who have special abilities, and those who are anxious around the water. All of our staff are also CPR certified and consistently continuing their teaching education. 

Aqua Duks is located in Anaheim Hills and has been serving the community and surrounding communities since 1983. We have recently completed construction of a new, state of the art facility with an indoor heated pool located at 160 S. Fairmont Blvd and we look forward to continuing to serve our community of swimmers for many years to come.

Knowing how to swim is such an important part of living in Orange County!  Swim lessons also come in handy when being invited to a birthday party or visiting the beach.
