Swim with Donna Swim School has Closed
Sadly, we have closed our swim school.  We were unable to find a new location with an indoor pool.
I want you to know how much that I have loved each student and have enjoyed watching each one progress in swimming. Teaching swimming is not just a job for me.  It was, and is, my passion.  I feel totally at peace with the world when I am in the water teaching.  Each child and adult that I taught brought joy to me.  I have been blessed to have each of you in my life.   I will be forever grateful for the wonderful families that have been a part of Swim With Donna Swim School.

I have visited many of the area swim schools, so that I could make recommendations for our families.  I am recommending SafeSplash Swim School, www.safesplash.com.  Please visit their website for locations and schedules.  I was so impressed that I will be teaching there a few days a week.
If you have any issues with registration or scheduling, please email  Justin Hart, owner, Jhart@safesplash.com

Meet Donna McIntosh, Our Head Swim Instructor

Donna started Swim With Donna Swim School in 2009 after many years as director of Dynamo Swim School.  She is passionate about children of all ages learning to swim.  Good swimming requires good technique, and that is the hallmark of the lesson program she has designed for Swim With Donna Swim School.  Read Donna's biography here.

Instructor Training 

Teacher training is essential for good instruction. It's the teacher that makes the child comfortable in the water, understands their needs, and adjusts the program so that the student can learn most effectively while having a good time. Donna has trained hundreds of teachers for Dynamo, as well as teachers for other schools.  All instructors for Swim With Donna have been through training with Donna.

Program Development Consulting 

The swim lesson curriculum used by Swim With Donna was written and developed by Donna.  The curriculum was developed over many years with the assistance and advice of fellow teachers and coaches.  A program is built around those learning to swim, and a curriculum is at its center. While at Dynamo, Donna directed the growth of the Chamblee and Alpharetta lesson sites, and opened new sites in Dunwoody, Buckhead, and Agnes Scott College.  Donna is available for consultation.

All Instructors are CPR and First Aid Certified
