Steve Wallen Swim School dives into expansion
How do you get a reluctant child to put her face in the water to learn to swim?
For 30 years Steve Wallen has studied and practiced the best methods for teaching his students, whether they’re 6 months or 82, new swimmers or triathletes wanting to perfect their strokes. Today Wallen is one of the area’s most sought after swim instructors and due to customer demand he’s expanding Steve Wallen Swim School yet again.
More than two decades ago Wallen began teaching swim lessons in his private backyard pool. When word of his students’ successes spread, far beyond the confines of his own neighborhood, Wallen established a year-round, 4,500-square-foot indoor facility in the El Dorado Hills Business Park in 2008. Today, with 200 students on average daily and 25 swim instructors, a 900-square-foot addition is under way and will be completed later this spring. The expansion includes more dressing rooms, bathrooms and parent viewing areas.
