Get to know our instructor:
“Hi! My name is Denise Waggoner. I own NeNe’s Swim Babies, Inc. I teach babies and children survival swimming here in Maryville, TN. I have been teaching survival swimming for over 25 years, Knoxville for 1 year and in Florida for 27 years. I am excited to bring my master skills here to Blount County. My passion is drowning prevention. I love teaching children vital skills to save themselves if they should find themselves in a water accident. These skills also teach respect for the water, how to have fun in the water with families and give peace of mind to parents. Survival swimming gives kids confidence to be safe around the water. I teach children 6 months old to 9 years old. Children 6 months old to walkers learn to float and roll to a float for a breath and wait for rescue. This takes about 4-8 weeks. Swimmers learn to swim float breathe and swim to rescue. This takes about 6-12 weeks. All children learn at their own pace. I swim children until they are safe! Lessons are Monday-Thursday, 15 minutes per day. Current hours are: 8-11 am and 3-7 pm. Summer Schedule to begin July 4th, 2022. $150.00 per week. Annual Registration Fee is $100 per child.
