The Houston Swim Club, formerly known as Phill Hansel Swimming Academy, was started in 1953. University of Houston head coach and U.S. Olympic coach Phill Hansel developed the successful teaching method that is still used by us today. This method combines a safe and positive environment with over fifty years of professionalism to offer students a proven method to achieve personal swimming goals.

After managing HSC for eight years, Bonnie Howe purchased the facility from Phill Hansel in 1994 and has carefully maintained the quality teaching standards. In June of 2001, we opened our second location in Sugar Land. Our third location opened in July of 2006 in Katy.

In May of 2009, daughter, Tammy Schoen, and son-in-law, Dan Schoen, of Bonnie Howe continued the growth and opened Houston Swim Club Pearland!

During the past fifty five years, we have taught over a quarter of a million students. We are professionally confident in our teaching methods and abilities and our policy is to teach with love and joy in a happy, positive, and structured atmosphere.
