Make a splash year-round with Cooper. For more than 20 years, Cooper Fitness Center has taught children the lifelong and lifesaving sport of swimming. Our goal is to make strong and secure swimmers by teaching swim skills and water safety.

Swim Pro Marni Kerner provides private and semi-private lessons in a positive and nurturing environment. Lessons focus on helping each swimmer:

  • Develop stroke mechanics and efficiency
  • Learn proper breathing mechanics
  • Build stamina and confidence in the water
  • Overcome fear of the water

 



CHILDREN & TEEN SWIMMING LESSONS
Our Swim Pro, Marni Kerner, works with children of all ages, infants to teens. She has more than 15 years of experience teaching swimming, including coaching The Hockaday School swim team since 2009.

We offer:

  • Private and semi-private lessons
  • Triathlon swim training
  • Swim team preparation training

Cooper Swim Academy is built on the core structure of consistency, class size, class time and repetition. Read more about how our lessons are structured.

For beginner to intermediate swimmers, 30-minute private lessons are recommended. For intermediate to advanced swimmers, 60-minute lessons are ideal.
