Teach Fun and Safety

Competitive Swimmer


Custom* and fun

It’s so much easier to teach the numbers of children who need to learn when you have great Teaching Platforms.

Kids love them. You can dress them up, place two or more together. You get exactly what

you need.

Center Umbrella Platform

$778 Summer Special

.Capacity: 5+

......LWH: 4'x3'x2.8'

Or any custom size you need


Our Teaching Platforms can also be custom designed for any pool. For outdoor pools ours is the only one which can include an umbrella to protect swimmers from the glaring and damaging sun as they learn to float and swim. Our platforms are fun too! You’re teaching a lifelong skill and supported by a real swim company. Have ideas? Call us today. 800.999.0824

We can also make adjustable

teaching platforms, and make

custom acrylic mirrors so kids can see their strokes looking down, etc. As a technical swim company, we are a great partner in helping you help swimmers start out the right way. Need anything else? Just ask. We can get it or invent it -- it’s who we are and what we do. Thanks to all of you who teach lessons and save lives every day!
