About Kona

Fort Worth and North Richland Hills Swim Lessons

At Flipkick Swim Academy we empower children and families through survival swimming as well as develop your swimmer beyond survival. We teach the most crucial component to swimming, the ability to independently obtain air while swimming. Most swim lessons teach children how to "destination" swim, instructor to wall or wall to wall. We specialize in teaching babies, children, and adults how to obtain air by flipping to their backs and floating. When a person knows they can breath whenever necessary their confidence is priceless.
