Our Mission

Our Mission

South Sound Swim and Safety was founded in 2008 by Erica Woodcock. Erica grew up with swimming as regular part of her daily life. Her passion and dedication to water safety grew stronger after having her own children in swim lessons. The mission of South Sound Swim and Safety was founded on the belief that everyone should learn to be safe in and around water.

Our swim programs are taught in small groups for both children and adults in Auburn and the surrounding area (Maple Valley, Covington and Kent). We are trained and equipped to work with ages 6 months through adults. We offer affordable private and a small program size (with a ratio of 3 children to 1 instructor). Prices start at only $30 per lesson, with a yearly registration fee of $35 for one child or $50 per family.

Individualized Swim Program Relaxing Atmosphere

With a maximum of 3 children per instructor, we can give each child our fullest attention and tailor the skills to each child’s unique needs. Confident swimmers are challenged, while timid swimmers get the time and attention they need to thrive. There is a variety of swim instructors at South Sound Swim School, so we are able to meet each individual swimmers needs

Our full-size pool is located inside the Black Diamond Camp in Auburn Washington. The pool is in the Granite Mountain Adventure Building.
The water is kept at a temperature of 88 degrees. The pool starts at a depth of 3-4 feet and has a deep end that is 9.5 feet deep.
We have a variety of teaching tools and aids to help each swimmer gain confidence and progress in their swim skills. With a ratio of 3 children to 1 teacher, our pool provides a calm learning environment for swimmers of all ages and abilities.
