Where Learning to Swim is Fun!
Arkansas Swim Academy is a state-of-the-art dedicated learn-to-swim facility providing year-round swim instruction for all ages and abilities from infants to adults. We offer perpetual lessons 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
Small Student to
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.
All of our instructors are CPR and lifeguard certified. There will always be a lifeguard on pool deck.
Together, Arkansas Swim Academy and Hope Floats Foundation are committed to providing scholarships and tuition assistance for high-quality swim lessons for low-income children and their families in Northwest Arkansas.

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.
