Dana Van Horrick

Hi! My name is Dana Van Horrick and I am a certified survival swim instructor for infants, toddlers, and children of all ages. As a mom of 3 young children, I understand the need for quality swim lessons for children and this is why I am so happy to be apart of the Survival Swim Development Network.

I graduated from Texas A&M in 2010 with a degree in Kinesiology. After graduation, I taught Elementary PE for 7 years and coached youth triathlon for 8 years as well. Once my first child was born in 2017, I took a break from public teaching and started my swim business a few months later. I feel so blessed to be a swim instructor, which gives me the ability to share my love of water and continue my passion of helping and teaching children.

In my spare time, I love working out at my local CrossFit gym, spending time with my 3 kids and husband, and watching my two teams (Aggies and Astros). A few my other favorite activities are swimming, running, and beach or lake days with the family.

I look forward to meeting you and your family and teaching your child life saving swim skills!

Swim Spot Pearland

“Swim Spot Pearland started in 2018 and has grown every year since. We are a backyard swim school that provides infant and child survival swim lessons and beginner swim/stroke development lessons as well.

When enrolling your child with Swim Spot Pearland, your family becomes apart of my swim family. I love getting to know your child’s personality, what motivates them, and what makes them smile. Building trust and rapport in each lesson is very important to me. Not only does that bring me joy, but I believe it helps the child be more comfortable when learning these important life saving skills.

My business prides in providing quality lessons specific to your child’s needs. My mission is for all of my students to learn these life saving techniques in a gentle, fun, and positive way. “

Coach Dana was amazing with our girls – they learned SO MUCH in just one summer. Highly highly recommend Swim Spot Pearland for teaching your littles all swim skills!

Jenny K.

My youngest daughter who HATED swim lessons is now asking to go back everyday. Thank you!

Alicia V.

Dana is so awesome with the kids! She is super patient and the kids learn so much every single year. We went from being scared of being in the water to loving pool time. Thanks Coach!

Allison B.

I absolutely love Coach Dana! She has taught all 3 of my kids. She is so patient with them. My son by the age of 4.5 could easily swim 25 yards and knows to flip to his back if he gets tired, and dive down over 6 ft. All of my kids love when we get to go to Swim Spot Pearland.
