For more than 35 years, Martha Burns Swimming School has successfully taught and trained thousands of confident swimmers of all ages. Children not only learn how to swim, but also learn how to be comfortable in the water - a skill essential for all Minnesotans. With our small class sizes, experienced instructors, and supportive atmosphere, your child will thrive, building confidence, gaining strength and improving stroke technique. Martha Burns Swimming School stands above other programs as the premier swimming school in Minnesota. There are no levels and no testing - only swim progression. Martha Burns Swimming School also specializes in teaching children who have had trouble learning. All of our instructors share in Martha's passion for swimming and teaching, and are eager to use her unique training techniques to encourage your child to enjoy the water and become a swimmer or perfect their current skills.
