The Skudin Swim curriculum was written by Beth Skudin and her late brother William “Uncle Bill” Bolton.  All swim programs are based on the ability of each individual swimmer, not age.

The Skudin Swim School offers group swim lessons for all skill levels ages 2-17. We use an ability based multi-level group system to teach our swimmers the skills needed to reach their full potential in and around all bodies of water. Please read below to learn which level your swimmer qualifies for. If you are unsure, please call the office at 516-978-7946 and we would be happy to help you!
