Swim Lessons for All Ages


Arkansas Swim Academy provides swim lessons year-round for all ages and abilities to families in the Northwest Arkansas area. Infants, toddlers, school-aged kids, teens, and adults all have a safe place to learn at our state-of-the-art dedicated learn-to-swim facility. We offer swim lessons and private classes with a goal-oriented program. Each swimmer is constantly evaluated and once they have mastered their current level they are recognized, rewarded and progress to the next class level.

The Arkansas Swim Academy Difference

Our Instructors


Small Student to
Teacher Ratio

With our small student to teacher ratio, each swimmer receives attention, guidance and supervision in all of our classes.


40+ Hours of Teacher

Our instructors have more than 40 hours of intensive classroom and in-water swim and safety training. Our water safety instructors are required to pass an online exam prior to teaching their first swim lesson at Arkansas Swim Academy. In addition, they receive continual training throughout the year.


CPR and
Lifeguard certified

All of our instructors are CPR and lifeguard certified. There will always be a lifeguard on pool deck.

Founded by Two moms with a passion

The owners, two local moms, Whitney Lloyd and Jennifer Sutherlin, are passionate that all children should learn to swim. Swimming is a fundamental life skill. Swimming lessons not only save lives but provide social, physical, cognitive and emotional benefits. Our philosophy is to take a fun, loving approach to teaching. At Arkansas Swim Academy we will earn your child’s trust, bond with them and build their confidence while practicing the skills they need to become safer swimmers, thus giving parents’ peace of mind.
