Patti Skelly, Founder of Pattican Academy is a local to South Florida where she learned how to swim at a young age. Growing up she enjoyed many water activities including competing on the swim team, snorkeling, wake boarding, and more! While swimming for her high school swim team, Patti became friendly with the swim instructors at the local pool and soon began her teaching career.

14 years later, Patti is still teaching swimming, and has developed a Private Swim Lesson Program that is tailored to fit each of her student's and parent's needs.

"I love seeing my students progress throughout my swim program. Teaching private swimming lessons gives me the ability to attend to each of my students needs, and allows me to customize a program that works best for them. Knowing that I have saved THOUSANDS of lives by teaching children AND adults to swim, is what made me so passionate about starting this business and sharing my knowledge with others."  

She believes that teaching in a fun, and positive learning environment will instill confidence in her students in order to develop a life long passion for all activities associated with swimming.

In Pattican Academy's swim program, students will learn the importance of safety, fundamental skills, and rules that apply in a fun and positive learning environment. Our goal is to develop our student's passion for an active lifestyle for a lifetime, through a structured lesson program.
