Welcome to Honu [pronounced
'ho-new'] Swim School!
Welcome to our website! We are thrilled to share information about our swim school with you. We've been anchored in Gilroy for over 14 years, teaching hundreds of babies, kids and adults to swim. We are located in Gilroy. We strive to provide just the right instruction to help our students become safer in the water and to achieve their swimming goals.
We are the only United States Swim School certified swim program in the south county area. We concentrate on providing high quality instruction through very small classes sizes, something you won't find at other swim programs. We differ from the YMCA, Morgan Hill Aquatics Center, and the Gilroy Parks and Recreation department because our group classes have a maximum of 4 students, with only our "baby & parent" class having a maximum of 6 students. Our school is unique because of our proven curriculum, our wonderful and caring staff, and our sincere commitment to help kids and adults become safer in the water.
Because we have an indoor pool, we enclose our outdoor swimming pool during the fall and winter, and with our water temperature at a constant 90 degrees plus, we are able to comfortably teach all year round. So any time of year is a good time to learn, or to improve on this life saving, confidence building art - swimming!
