Welcome to Making Waves!
Making Waves Swim School has been producing confident swimmers and providing award-winning water safety programs for children and adults since 1994. Between our four locations in Brampton, Milton, Mississauga and Vaughan, we currently teach over 6,000 students per week in learn-to-swim programs.
Our Facility Features:
Custom designed teaching pools with warm water
Large comfortable viewing areas
Family change rooms with hair dryers
Highly trained staff and trusted Small Steps Teaching Method
Parent & Tot (2-23 months)
Our specially designed Parent and Tot program is a fun way to build your child’s confidence in the water!
This 10-level program for children ages six and older is both fun and challenging and will help swimmers develop the five main swimming strokes that support aquatic safety in, on, and around the water.
"Best swim school in Vaughan!!! Both my kids have attended for over a year. My oldest went from a struggling level 1 swimmer to confident level 7 swimmer in a year. The facility is clean and well maintained and the staff are fantastic!"
“Making Waves Swim School at the Vaughan location has been truly amazing thus far. The staff are enthusiastic, very positive and encouraging. The classes are 30 minutes long with a student ratio of 3:1, who are closely at the same swimming level. The instructor equally splits the time developing specific skills for each individual. My son loves learning here! Also the facility is nice and clean."
"We have been with Making Waves since they opened here in Vaughan. Their instructors are so dedicated, kind and approachable. They tailor their lessons to each child's needs and personality that even my 2 year old daughter eagerly waits for the next lesson. They provide continuous updates on each child's progress. Both my 5 yr old son and 2 yr old daughter have advanced so much in such a short time. Their facility is very clean and spacious. Bonus is the kids play space in the viewing area which keeps little ones pre-occupied while waiting."
Over the past 20+ years, Aquatics has taken me around North America where I have had the opportunity to share my knowledge, expertise and passion with others and love that I’m able to share that with Making Waves every day! One thing I’m proud of is developing our new Making Waves learn-to-swim program! When I am away from the pool you can find me running or out on the water, travelling the world, playing board games or just spending quality time with my wife.
Our Commitment to Safety:
We are committed to health and safety for our employees and families. Our plan promotes and adheres to strict hygiene, sanitation standards, and physical distancing to the extent possible. These will be our guiding principles in determining key factors to resume our swimming lessons safely.
