The Little Vikes Swim Academy is Moving

The Little Vikes Swim Academy must report with great sadness that the COVID-19 pandemic has proven too much of a financial burden for our little business to handle. In the summer of 2020, Valparaiso Swimming Inc. had to file for the dissolution of our company. We want to extend great love and thanks to all the hundreds of families who have joined us to teach your exceptional children to swim over the years. This business venture was started back in 2012 when Valpo Community Schools could not fund our learn to swim program any longer, and the VHS swim coaches decided to carry forward.

We are happy to announce that Valpo Schools has once again stepped in to continue to provide swim lessons to the community. The good news is that very little will change with this new relationship at the Valparaiso Aquatic Center since the staff remains virtually the same. The new aquatics director, Adam Nellessen, will become the primary director of the Little Vikes Swim Academy. Pete Sattler, the old Executive Director of Valpo Swimming Inc, has been working with Adam to transfer the program over to the VAC into the future. Pete and Adam have worked closely together for years as the two head swim coaches at VHS and look forward to continuing to bring this vital program to our community. If you have come here to look for swim lessons, please follow the link below to go to the new location for the Little Vikes Swim Academy:

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside awakens.

To the person who does not know where he wants to go there is no favorable wind.


If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.
