Dolphins of the Desert Swimming Academy

Academia de Natación “Delfines del Desierto"

The academy was founded on one simple principle: no matter what your age or level or ability in swimming, the best learning results from the best teaching. And the finest instruction comes from those who have the most extensive swimming experience and expertise.

Proficient swimmers in Tucson and Phoenix progress naturally because they study correct techniques and practice under the watchful eye of a certified Dolphins of the Desert Coach or Teacher. For every swimmer, it involves identifying poor technique and learning how to feel the right way to swim. For the specialized swimmer, the tri-athlete, the long-distance or open-water swimmer, it means developing customized training programs through the Swimming Academy’s experts for successful goal achievement.
