Our experienced staff run one-hour* classes to allow kids to have more practice and quality time in a fun, safe environment. With our small class sizes, our awesome instructors can get to know the children well, identify areas for improvement, and cater to individual needs. Many of our swimmers take lessons into their teens and in many cases even become swim instructors themselves!

* Note: To facilitate COVID protocols, our 1-hour lessons have been temporarily reduced to 50 minutes.

Our incredible swim instructors know the strokes

We developed a training program based on over 30 years of experience that provides our instructors with terrific tools to teach your kids to be safe in and around water.

"Being a swim instructor is undoubtedly the best job I've ever had! It's rewarding teaching kids how to swim. But most importantly, it's seeing the kids find their passion for swimming that makes it so worth it. There's an incredible support staff of passionate and experienced swim instructors! Working at Pedalheads Swim rocks!!!"

Combo Camp

Two camps mean double the fun. Build on your child's skills with our Bike+Swim combo camp!

  • Bike + Swim

    Only offered in Vancouver, this combo combines a half-day bike camp with a two-hour swim camp
    ― a combination that is a must-do for any kid's summer.


Rebranding Atlantis programs

Many people have known about our swim classes for kids as "Atlantis programs" since the 1980s! But as we added programs in more locations, it was hard for people to keep track of all the fun things we were doing. That's why in 2018, Atlantis programs changed to Pedalheads Swim.

FAQ about our swimming lessons for kids

Do you have updates around the Covid-19 situation?
Please visit our Covid-19 updates page for the latest information as it pertains to Pedalheads.
1) What do I need to bring?
2) What age can I register and how long are your swimming lessons?
3) What if I put my child in the wrong swim level?

We run our programs with split classes, so we’re often able to accommodate one level change. To ensure the best experience for all children, we don’t overbook classes. That said, we’ll do our best to switch your child accordingly. Or if that isn’t possible, we’ll challenge your child within the group you registered them for.

4) Where are you located?

Pedalheads Swim runs classes in British Columbia (Vancouver, Richmond and Burnaby). In 2021 we will have our own brand new pool at Park Royal Mall in West Vancouver.

5) What if I miss a class?

You may schedule up to one make-up lesson. Due to the busy nature of our pools, make-up classes are not guaranteed and are based on availability. Please note, the make-up class must be completed within the session as they do not transfer to new sessions. Private students who would like to make up a missed class will do so in regular group classes.

To try to book a make-up class, please give our office a call at 604.874.6464 (toll free: 1.888.886.6464) during the week you're interested in booking in. We schedule make-up classes on a weekly basis to ensure all families have a fair chance of completing the make-up class.
