Steve Wallen Swim School

For over 40 years, Steve Wallen Swim School has been teaching swim lessons and water safety for infants, kids, and adults of all skill levels.  Our family-owned and operated swim school started modestly in Steve Wallen’s backyard pool in Folsom where we ran our program for 20 years. In 2008 we opened our facility in the El Dorado Hills Business Park #3 at 1230 Glenhaven Court and in 2018 we opened our facility in Roseville at 10608 Industrial Avenue to meet demands and offer year-round swim instruction to our students. Our program has quickly grown into one of the most popular and respected swim schools in our area.  We have a staff of highly trained and skilled swimming lesson instructors that are personally trained and supervised by Steve Wallen and his son Kaleb to meet their demanding standards while employing one of the most successful swim instruction models in the country.

Since working with the SBDC we have overcome some of our greatest obstacles in continuing to grow our business such as creating a more efficient business model, updating our marketing, and enhancing our online presence. We were able to secure a SBA loan of 550,000.00 and our business has grown tremendously over the past 15-20 years from a small backyard business to now operating two facilities. We can’t thank the SBDC and their staff enough for their experience and expertise in helping us to grow our business and we plan to continue working with them in the future!
