about us

Sun Oaks Swim School offers many options for your child to learn to swim. We are a year-round swim school, offering both group and private swim lessons for ages 6 months and up. We encourage students to start in the Parent & Tot setting, where young children learn to enjoy the water in the comfort of their parents arms. At age 2, we transition kids from swimming with their parents to swimming with an instructor in our Toddler Classes. Once kids are able to participate safely and calmly (usually at age 3) they can be part of Level 1 class. We have 3 Levels within our swim school. Our classes are small and offer plenty of attention for each child to progress. In Level 1, kids learn aquatic comfort and beginner skills – such as breath control, floating, kicking and pulling. In Level 2, kids learn independence in the deep water and are introduced to strokes. In level 3 – kids refine stokes, master side-breathing and build endurance. After passing Level 3, kids can move on to our Pre-Team class, which prepares kids for any competitive swim team in Redding. If kids are looking to swim for fitness, we offer a Lap Swim class, where kids learn to swim sets and sharpen stroke techniques. Email angie@sunoaks.comEncoded with questions regarding lessons

Testimonials

As a former competitive swimmer and father of small children I am very happy to endorse Angie Baker and the Sun Oaks swim program. I have seen dozens of coaches over the years and experienced many different coaching styles. Angie is the perfect fit for children learning to swim or trying to turn the corner to the next level. She understands the fundamentals of swimming, stroke technique and the critical aspect of interacting with young kids undertaking this sport/activity. We have the utmost confidence in her coaching and the care of our children.

Ms. Angie is a phenomenal swim teacher.  Our 4 year old, Willow, looks forward to each swim lesson and is acquiring skills quickly.  She is currently in level 2 and they are working with basic strokes and breathing techniques.  Ms. Angie is fun, enthusiastic and very talented with the children.  Her love of her job is evident every week.  I think Ms. Angie can take our Willow to the Olympic level within the next 5 years if she keeps up this pace.

Jill F.

My kids have taken a wide variety of classes throughout the years at the Sun Oaks Swim School. I love the flexibility and the wide variety of classes offered to meet the needs of my children and our schedule. We have done the parent and tot classes, the toddler classes, and other group level classes. We are always greeted with a smile. The instructors are highly skilled but most importantly, they are friendly, kind, and nurturing. I feel at ease knowing that my children are in great trusting hands learning swimming skills, in addition to learning about water safety, which is a top priority as a parent. My kids are confident swimmers thanks to the skills learned at the Sun Oaks Swim School. I am very grateful for Miss Angie, and the whole swim school program.”

Angie Baker

Sun Oaks Swim School Director

Angie Baker was born and raised on the pool decks of Redding and swam competitively since the age of 6. She has always had a love for aquatics and is excited to share that passion with her Redding community. In 2003, Angie moved to Arcata for college; where she earned a B.S. in Kinesiology at Humboldt State University and met her husband, Joe (at the pool of course!).

While attending school, she worked as the Head Age Group Coach for the Humboldt Swim Club and a Swim Lessons Supervisor for the Arcata Community Pool.  From there, Angie interned as a P.E. Teacher at The International School Villa Amalienhof in Berlin, Germany. She and her husband then moved to San Diego in 2010; where Angie was the Head Coach for Coronado Navy Swim Association and taught private lessons for 2 years.

She and her husband have slowly been making their way back north, from the Bay Area to Chico; where Angie continued coaching and teaching swimming. Angie and her husband moved to Redding in September of 2015 to settle down and raise a family. They have 2 sons, Che & Cam. Angie is looking forward to being a part of the Sun Oaks team and thrilled to bring her swimming expertise and enthusiasm to our Redding community.

Angie’s personal motto is, “Attitude is Everything.” She believes that with a positive attitude and a strong work ethic, you can accomplish your goals. Stop by and say hi to Angie on the pool deck!
