Our Philosophy

Fear Free Learn to Swim

The Tallahassee Swim School is a member of the National Swim School Association and has been in existence since 1994 under the direction of Terry Maul and his wife Dr. Jodi Yambor. As professionals in the fields of education and aquatics for over 30 years, Terry and Jodi saw a need to improve the offering for swimming instruction in the Tallahassee area. With that in mind, they organized a swim school, which specializes in private and semi-private lessons.

This allows each student to maximize contact time with his or her instructor. In addition to this individualized approach, the Tallahassee Swim School is committed to instruction at the students pace.

A “success oriented” and “fear free” environment is essential to an effective learn-to-swim experience and is the cornerstone of the philosophy of the Tallahassee Swim School.

Private and semi-private swim lessons are offered for ages 2 years old and up (this includes adults!). Group swim lessons offered at Killarney Way also includes a Water Babies class for ages 6 months to 4 years old.
