About Us

Our highly trained, caring swim instructors use practiced and proven water safety techniques to provide swim instruction to young children to the best of our ability.

Desert Swim School (formerly Waterworks On Wheels) was founded in 1985 by Janice Jaicks, owner and president. Janice began offering backyard swim lessons around the city of Mesa, AZ and was the sole instructor. Now Desert Swim School employs approximately 12 part-time summer instructors for backyard swim lessons serving the entire East Valley, as well as a staff for year-round indoor lessons at four health club facilities in Arizona.

In addition, Desert Swim School provides adult swim lessons in Chandler, Arizona. Adult swim lessons are available for all levels, from beginners to triathletes!
