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.
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.
Westover Hills Club
Jonny has taken on another pool! If you’re a member at Westover Hills Club, you can now enjoy lessons at 10% off. Everyone else is still welcome to take their lessons in this 84ºF water too – it’ll just be full price. The majority of Jonny’s clients will need to switch to this pool instead of Rob Roy.
Last clinic before summer begins at Westover Hills Club from 4:00-8:30 PM, Monday-Thursday. Get ready to prevent the same DQ’s from last year!
Good Luck Rocket Swimmers
Summer league season is upon us and we want to wish everyone preparing through Rocket Swimming good luck this year! Keep us posted on your progress and sign up for a few “Technique Correction” lessons with the footage of their races at meets.
As many summer leagues come to a close, be sure to schedule a technique tune-up! It’s helpful to have a race strategy and rehearsal lesson before the big day.
Summer Stroke Clinic
We’re running a stroke clinic at Westover Hills Club & River Place Country Club over the next 4 weeks! Limited availability at each location so reserve your spot now. If your swimmer DQ’d more than once for the same thing, you will not want to miss this!
For the first time ever, Westover Hills Club is starting a year-round swim team. Practices will be hosted by Jonny Rocket, Coach Grammer, and Max Star! There are flexible frequency options to fit every schedule. Tap here or on the image to register your swimmer today!
It’s here! Through Coach Max Star, Rocket Swimming proudly introduces water polo lessons. Max was a varsity player and NCAA champion for UCLA where he also coached the club team for 3x years. Before that, Max was awarded “Mr. Water Polo” for the state of Pennsylvania where he’s also a 2x state champion! Get ready for the most elite water polo coaching and resources in Austin.

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!
With freezing temps across America, our swimmers had to find creative ways to swim. Once the water thawed out, everyone got back to work in preparation for championship season! Good luck to all our swimmers competing at their respective meets – you ARE ready.

Ready for Lessons
Welcome to the team our three newest instructors, Joel Songer, Aaron Kalivas, and Patton Taylor! We’re so excited to have these professionals teaching for our brand. Joel will be teaching in the Westlake and River Place communities; Aaron will service Lakeway, River Place, and Cedar Park; and Patton has her own pool to teach from in Johnson City. Let’s rock it!
We have a new team member on the Rocket Swimming squad! Sarah Devaney has been teaching and coaching alongside Jonny Rocket at the River Place Country Club for the last three summers. She’s ready to go professional and we couldn’t be more confident in her ability to connect with her students. Welcome to the team, Sarah!
Bringing the Heat
The instructors for Rocket Swimming had a record-setting month! With 141 lessons taught, we continue to improve the way swimming is learned. Many learned how to swim for the first time, while the majority of our clients improved their times and technique. Whichever group you find yourself in, our method has accelerated the learning process through realtime video feedback above and below the water! Come see for yourself just how effective it can be.
Jonny Rocket had the pleasure of coaching four of the swimmers who made it to the olympic trials this year. The Rocket Swimming method continues to push the sport of swimming forward with the “why” method. When a swimmer understands why a technique or correction will help them, they’re more inclined to do it well! Come see for yourself the results we can guarantee.
Jonny Rocket traveled east to host the first ever Rocket Swimming clinic outside of Texas. An exciting week for the swimmers and Jonny led to plans for another trip in March. If you missed out this time, mark your calendars!
We’re offering 40% off an extra lesson every week during the month of November to show our gratitude for all those swimming with us this year! Our pool is heated to 84ºF all year round; so yes, we’re open 🙂
Jonny Rocket & Rocket Swimming believe the holidays should be spent with undivided attention on family. Therefore, you’re going to get a media blackout from us on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day – enjoy your break!
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.
Jonny’s following in Austin and all over the world was so large that he couldn’t handle the demand on his own. So he brought in friends and family.
Vlad, a Russian national team member, olympic trials qualifier, and NCAA assistant coach, was his first phone call. Eager to join the team, he moved here from Tennessee just before launch day.
Grant, a collegiate national swimmer, moved from Indiana to join the team and change the world.
Nick, a previous coworker with Jonny at Nitro Swimming, also answered the call to join the others in teaching the most elite private swim lessons in the world.
Abigail, Jonny’s twin sister and previous business partner in Pittsburgh, also joined forces with Rocket Swimming to start her own practice in Los Angeles where she currently resides.
Following Jonny’s lead, these first five instructors embarked on a new challenge. How will they legitimately achieve the status of “most elite” private swim lessons. They took Jonny’s reputation in online swimming plus his experience in digital marketing, Vlad’s talent in videography, Grant’s knowledge of techniques, Nick’s positive teaching methods, and Abigail’s business savvy, to make a product the likes of which the world has never known.
Our beautiful two-pool setup is perfect for private lessons! If you don’t have your own pool or struggle to heat it during the winter, come on over to ours! It’s kept at 82ºF at all times which is warm enough even for the littlest of swimmers.
Bring the whole family and enjoy the lower pool (pictured here) with a slide, diving board, and shade while your private lesson transpires.
With referrals flowing in left and right, we introduced a new incentive to our clients. For every swimmer who registers upon your recommendation, you’ll receive a free lesson! Oh and there’s no limit to how many free lessons you can receive. Some have already accrued more than 7 free lessons! So sign up today and tell your friends!
Our new starting block is in and ready to go! If you’re a competitive swimmer looking to improve starts and turns, look no further than Rocket Swimming! We have underwater cameras for the turns, and slo-mo cameras for the starts. Come on out and swim to your heart’s content!
To show how grateful we were this year, we offered our clients 50% off an extra lesson each week! As we reflected on the many blessings we received this year, none stood out more than you. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts!
Lessons will pause briefly between December 20th through the remainder of the month. We hope everyone has a blessed time with their families and friends! Stay safe and see you next year!
