Message From Vicki about Back Yard Swimming Lessons

35 years ago I started teaching private, backyard swimming lessons in the Hamptons on the eastern end of Long Island. My daughter joined me 14 years ago as business expanded. Now, what began as a way to supplement my family‚Äôs income grew into an internationally acclaimed swim school catering to celebrities, CEOs, politicians, and other exclusive clients in the Hamptons. 

I started EZ Swim Aquatics to make backyard swimming lessons in your own pool a reality to everyone. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined doing what I love to do every day and make back yard swimming lessons available to everyone on Long Island. 

I have been teaching for 40 years. I have learned what works and what does not work. That’s why my instructors are not only Red Cross Certified but I also give them additional training.

I treat each of my customers and instructors as if they are family. My instructors are all awesome! If they are not, let me know. We want all the families we teach to be part of our EZ Swim/Art of Swimming family. We love the kids! We love what we do and it shows!

-Vicki Bonaguro, Owner and founder of Art of Swimming and EZ Swim Aquatics
