Our Swim School has been a dream of Coach Danielle’s Since she started coaching back in 2006. Her dream is becoming a reality Spring 2023! Her swim school is Candy Land and Beach theme just like her books. There will be giant images of the books on the walls and fun filled sweets everywhere. It will be a place where kids are excited to start their swimming adventure.

Coach Danielle Bakic

A professional swim instructor for fifteen years, has taught thousands of children to swim. She is passionate about teaching survival, as well as proper technique and strokes. Danielle is firm, yet fun, and specializes in helping children who are terrified of the water. By boosting their confidence and building their trust in her, she helps them overcome their fears. Danielle provides private lessons, so children receive the attention they need. Ninety-nine percent of her students learn to swim across the pool in nine lessons. 

Coach Danielle’s book “My Swim Adventure” has changed the way parent’s help teach their children how to swim.  In her adventurous, how-to-swim book, Coach Danielle teaches children and parents the best techniques to use in the water. In the story, two fun characters MIllie the Mermaid and Sammy the Shark, teach the siblings, Emma and Noah, to conquer their fear of the water so they can learn to swim. Who wouldn’t want to learn how to swim, by a talking Mermaid and Shark?


Have fun with your children when you follow Emma and Noah’s swimming adventures. Practice the fun applicable words, like ice cream scoops, windmill arms, and dolphin hands, to help your children swim properly. Encourage them to say “I am brave and strong” and “I can do it,” so your children can use these words to face any of life’s challenges.
