Welcome to Wisconsin Swim Academy
Hi… I’m Susie Van Ekeren, Wisconsin Swim Academy owner, lifelong swim enthusiast, and most importantly proud mom to a family of over 1,000 WSA kiddos and staff.
In 2008 I began teaching swim lessons from my backyard to earn money to pay for our pool heater. As a mother of 4 boys, safety was always a concern for my husband and me. And much like today, we started with small class sizes for 30-minute lessons and I served fresh-baked bread and coffee or tea to my moms every day as a treat! (Thanks Happy Bellies for your yummy treats too).
My passion for teaching and kids exploded with each lesson and 20 years later I still love seeing their excitement as they accomplish each new skill. We now have 60+ swim instructors, over 1,000 kiddos, splashy new digs we call home and we would be so happy to welcome you.
What makes Wisconsin Swim Academy special?
