"The best coach, hard but really enjoyable lessons, gets great results, will get you into the best swim team if you want to become a competitive swimmer." - Julian, age 9

“James is a great instructor. I'm 18 years old and before I started the lessons I was really hesitant about his ability to teach an adult, but he has made tremendous progress with me. His teaching methods are simple but can get difficult as they go on. I'm glad I took lessons from him and not somebody else.” - Forhad Sattar, Swimmer

Imagine School Of Swimming, New York
Courses / Programs
Imagine Swimming, for children ages 12-months to 12-years, was founded in 2002 by former world-class swimmers Casey Barrett and Lars Merseburg. Originally operated out of the Hunter College pool on 69th Street and Park Avenue, the school has grown to nine New York locations - extending from TriBeCa to the Upper East Side, Brooklyn Heights to Chelsea. Imagine is now the most popular swimming program in lower Manhattan, with the BMCC pool in TriBeCa its flagship facility. Currently, the school welcomes over 1200 students each week to its pools.

Widely recognized in the swimming community as one of the world's top aquatic educations, Imagine has become a destination for international swimmers eager to pass along their skills as elite instructors. Like many of the city’s top preschools, Imagine has absorbed the teachings of Reggio Emilia, the Italian educational philosophy that places great respect on children’s imaginations and their interaction with the natural world. We feel this philosophy may be best expressed in the water – where every sense is engaged and the opportunities for exploration are endless.
