Swim with Sam was born when our Founder Samantha Caballero saw the need for access to swim lessons to people of color in her community in 2018. After working for several swim lesson programs, she saw there were large groups of people who were not receiving this life saving service- predominantly people of color. She began Swim with Sam to provide more opportunities to the people who needed it most.
As a mobile service, people were not burdened with driving across rush hour traffic to bring their child to a swim school outside of their area. Private lessons ensured clients were receiving the highest quality, personalized lessons. Providing lessons in public and community pools provided access to those who don’t have a pool. The goal was to reach everyone. No matter their situation, they deserved to learn how to swim.
With instructors who travel across both Miami-Dade and Broward County
