THE FISH POOL
The fish pool was uniquely designed to teach swimming lessons in. It was built in 2009 and was designed with specific details from Mrs. Debbie, so that she could teach lessons in and accommodate her students needs. The mouth of the fish pool is where the Toddlers and Pre-schoolers are taught. The middle of the fish pool is where the School Age Children are taught. The deep end of the pool is where the advanced students are taught. Come to learn how to Swim in the "Fish Pool."
We go over these rules everyday before class:
1. Never swim alone always swim with a buddy (someone older that knows how to swim).
2. Always ask permission before getting in the pool.
3. Walk and don't run around the pool.
4. Never swim in lightning and thunder.
5. Don't jump or dive in shallow water.
6. Don't eat or chew gum in the swimming pool.
7. Don't bring glass around the swimming pool.
8. Never potty in the pool.
9. Reach or throw don't go.
Joann Delhomme started teaching swimming Lessons out of her home on Myrtle Place in 1963. Then the Delhomme Family moved on Mary view Farm Road in 1972 and continued teaching swimming lessons. Joann then opened the Get Wet Shop in 1978. She started the Get Wet Shop in her back yard and then moved it to Jefferson Street in downtown Lafayette. Then she opened the Current location on Ambassador Caffery. Now the Swim School has moved to Veterinarian Road at the home of Debbie Delhomme-Greene. Debbie has designed a special fish shaped pool to teach the children in. The Delhomme Family has over 50 years of teaching experience. We enjoy teaching children how to swim.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
What makes us different is the love and passion that we put into teaching children how to swim. It all started with Joann Delhomme and the lesson plans that she spent so much time developing. She has many different levels that you go through to bring yourself to an Advanced swimmer. She also has a program that brings teaching, learning and having fun all together. Joann's favorite saying was, "Swimming is Fun!!"
