About Us

Why Water Safety?

Welcome to Mountain Wave Swimming! We are bringing a unique method of swim instruction to Southeastern Idaho because we believe that it is never too early to start preparing for safe, fun interactions with water. Babies, from the moment they are born, love the feeling of being held in warm water and most adults continue to find time in the pool relaxing. Water has the ability to melt away stress, heal injuries, and provide physical exercise at any age. Our approach is one that puts safety first every step of the way. We teach every swimmer that comes through our program how to float independently and get to safety before moving on to acclimation, strokes, and diving.

“We want to give kids the chance to practice getting through difficult situations.”

“My daughter is difficult when it comes to water, but the instructor at mountain wave swimming is AMAZING and works so well with her. They use every minute of her lesson to teach her and help her. They don’t waste any time on crying, they just teach. My daughter has improved SO much in just 5 lessons. So impressed. Highly recommend.”
