Meet the owner:


My name is Kyra Gilbert. I became a lifeguard in 2016 and certified to teach swimming lessons in 2018. I created Different Strokes Swim School to teach water safety and swimming skills while pools were closed due to covid-19. I started as a swim coach in a public pool, and quickly discovered the need for private lessons to help swimmers truly meet their aquatic goals. 

Swimming lessons are an important part of having fun and being safe around the water. Through Different Strokes, we aim to offer engaging and professional private lessons to ensure that swimmers and caregivers feel confident around the water. 

Our Team.
