About Us

We Teach “Why”

Jonny Rocket has always believed it’s important to not just tell someone what to do, but also teach them why we do it. When you know why you’re doing something, you’re more inclined to do it really well! Understanding the concept motivates you to do your best. This philosophy leads to faster, more permanent progress as students embrace the subject matter.




Winter Training

January marks a tradition in competitive swimming where athletes train their hardest all year. With championship season right around the corner, it’s important for every swimmer to have a firm technique as they tackle longer sets with higher intensity! Get lots of rest and eat plenty of fruits & veggies during this time.


Back At It

Happiest of New Years to all! We hope everyone remained safe and healthy through the holidays. We’re back to training in the pool and preparing for championship meet season! Let’s rock it.


New Year

2021 brought with it many new firsts for Rocket Swimming. Our online lessons became evermore popular while our YouTube channel views soared! Many of our swimmers finished their hardest training of the year in preparation for “championship season.” We’re expecting big things this year as we welcome all the new swimmers we’ve already had the pleasure of meeting!


Our Birth

Jonny had this crazy idea to bring private swimming instruction to people’s homes all over the world. Leaving his former YouTube channel of 131,000 subscribers and his coaching position with one of the most successful clubs in the world, he decided to get back to his roots – private lessons.

All on his own again, Jonny realized he was more equipped than before thanks to the experience he gained from coaching five different teams in the last seven years, all of which were champions in their respective leagues.
