Our Happy Customers

I am soooo happy that Back To Basics is finally got a facebook page!  This allows me the opportunity to thank you for everything you taught my daughter in her early swimming days.  My daughter is now swimming competitively and I put her swimming success completely down to you guys!  Your attention to stroke detail and great instruction made her the fabulous, confident swimmer she is today!  Thank you!!!!

Awesome school. When my daughter was little she was terrified of going into the water. We tried three other local clubs and I was almost ready to give up. Thank goodness someone recommended Back To Basics to me.  Five minutes with Elmira and not only was she in the pool but also putting her head under the water!


This is the place to be if you want your kids to develop exceptional technical skills. 2 of my boys have gone through the program and 1 currently swimming for his school team and earned Most Improved Rookie of the Year is because of the foundation that he developed through Back to Basics and he’s currently a swim instructor at the academy. My other son also went through the program and currently swimming competitively and he will be back for 1 season for fine tuning. Now my 3rd son (3 yrs old) is currently going through the program. If you want to give your children the best, it’s Back to Basics Academy!
