Premier Swim Academy in Rancho Cucamonga was developed as a ground up, purpose built facility, specifically designed to teach children and adults how to swim in the most effective way possible. The facility boasts a large indoor teaching pool, locker rooms and a guest viewing area. The entire facility is temperature controlled to provide swimmers a 90 degree warm learning environment, while guest can watch lessons in our air conditioning viewing room.
Before and after lessons, clients are welcome to utilize our open grass area inside the facility, for kids to run around and be kids.
Wally works as the General Manager for Premier Swim Academy. He has previously worked at Indiana University and Seattle University in their aquatic recreation programs and has been teaching swim lessons since 2012. While finishing his M.S in Kinesiology at Indiana University, Wally was able to focus on Aquatic Recreation and Underwater Physiology and has a passion to stay involved in the field!
Originally from Indiana, Wally’s first job was as a lifeguard on Lake Michigan and his involvement in aquatic recreation only grew from there. He continued to be a competitive swimmer for 6 years, only to switch sports and begin playing ultimate frisbee. He is certified through the American Red Cross as a Water Safety Instructor and Lifeguard Instructor, the Pool and Hot Tub Alliance as a Certified Pool Operator, through PADI as a divemaster and through AIDA as a 1-star Freediver.
Wally loves working with Swim Instructors on “soft skills” and continued education. If you can’t find him at Premier Swim Academy he’s likely with his dog, Naga and there is probably a disc nearby for at least one of them.
Hello! My name is Melissa and I am the Administrative Director here at Premier Swim Academy in Rancho Cucamonga. Swimming and working with the community has been a huge part of my life from a young age. My very first job in high school was lifeguarding and teaching swim lessons at my local pool in the city of Covina. From there I went on to gain my degree in Teacher Education, where my love of working with children and their families continued to grow.
I started with Premier in April 2021 as a front desk admin and have had the wonderful opportunity to advance into my current role. During my time here I have enjoyed getting to know the families and students that come through our doors, as well as working with a great team! Being able to help families register for our programs, answer your questions, and take care of your scheduling needs has been a great experience so far. When I’m not spending my day at Premier, I’m probably taking care of my 3 cats, 2 pups, turtle, and plants!

Hi, I’m Abby and I have been working at Premier since we opened in 2020! I have had the opportunity to experience the fun of Premier as a swim instructor, an admin, a deck manager, and now as a facility manager. I have always had a passion for the water, growing up I took every chance to spend time in the pool, and I was on the water polo and swim teams for 5 years.
My favorite things to do when I am not working is thrifting or changing the design on my head. If you’ve seen me around Premier then you know I love seeing others reactions when I’ve done another bright and crazy design! My eventual goal is to own a swim school of my own in the Midwest. Another goal of mine is to go back to school to get my cosmetology license and bring my fun hair designs to those who will enjoy them!
