Established in 1958, the Jan Thomas Swim School is the oldest and largest seasonal swim school in the United States.

The Jan Thomas Swim School has been located in Clovis, California for over 50 years. Prior to relocating to Clovis, Jan Thomas was a diver at the Los Angeles Athletic Club and taught swimming and diving in Hollywood and Beverly Hills at the famous Jen Loven and Crystal Scarborough Swim Schools, respectively.  Jan pioneered infant swimming in the San Joaquin Valley in 1956.

Jan Thomas and her staff have subsequently taught over 60,000 children to swim in a positive and loving environment.  They believe there is nothing more rewarding and fulfilling than teaching your children these life saving skills.

Jan Thomas is a past president of the United States Swim School Association and a USSSA Hall of Fame inductee. She served on the USSSA Task Force for Infant Swim Teacher Certification and is a charter member of the World Congress of Aquatic Babies Education.

Becky Thomas is not only Jan’s daughter, but is an active partner in the swim school.  She graduated from BYU with her BA in Family Science.  Becky works as our teacher/trainer, pool supervisor and instructor.

"Our goal is not only to teach your child to swim, but to be a HAPPY swimmer as well. We believe that love and understanding within a structured lesson will produce a safe and happy swimmer.  Our teachers love children, are well trained and our pools are heated to 90 degrees-a combination which produces a quality learning environment."
