Welcome to Harriet Plummer Aquatics.
The East Bay’s Premier Swim School since 1972
The award-winning Harriet Plummer Method has taught thousands of children to be safe and confident swimmers who learn to swim with outstanding technique. We are passionate about swimming as a fun and healthy lifetime activity.
It is our pleasure to share our enthusiasm and knowledge with students while teaching them to love the water.
Our instructors conduct lessons in a mature, positive, engaging, and structured manner with a commitment to water safety.
All scheduling is done via email only.
Our availability is updated daily.
We specialize in teaching children between 3 and 8 years of age. From non-swimming to competitive stroke coaching.
All Lessons Are Private
Each child is taught one on one (instructor and student only) in a non-parent participation program. Each 20-minute lesson is customized to meet our students’ abilities and maturity. Our progression-based curriculum improves motor skills and confidence.
We Are a Year Round Program
Year-round swim lessons help kids retain and improve their water safety skills throughout the year. With more opportunities in the water, they can continuously increase their water safety skill set.
Over 50 Years of Experience
We have taught thousands of students to swim. Our expertise in child development allows us to meet every child’s needs in the water. Our pool is staffed with knowledgeable instructors that are kind, mature and professional. We welcome students with special needs.
Safety Is Our Priority
Our emphasis on swimming fundamentals makes safety a priority. Learning to swim takes time. We anticipate most students will proficiency demonstrate our swim process in 1 to 2 years of year-round learning.
