A Message From Our Founder
Welcome to Swim Warriors!
My name is Brooke Landi Rapson. I am 28 years old, and I am the owner and operator of Swim Warriors Incorporated. I have been married for four years and we have two Great Pyrenees (Watson and Holmes) and a Bernese Mountain Dog (Hazel). I am the oldest of eleven kids: four biological sisters, three step-brothers, and three adopted siblings. They have influenced my life significantly and have had a great impact on how I run this company.
We are proud to announce we had a little Swim Warrior join us this November, a baby girl, Hadassah Rose.
It has been a blessing to watch our swim family grow over the past eight summers from 140 swimmers to currently over 3,000 per week. We have now been named the Best of Forsyth for 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023. What an honor!
I have ten years of expertise in swim instruction and coaching. During this time I have instructed children between the ages of 6 months up to adults. I have been involved in year-round competitive swimming for 17 years. In the past, I was a head coach of Otwell Middle School's competitive swim team for four consecutive seasons. I have been trained through the Red Cross in lifeguarding, first aid, pediatric and adult CPR, and WSI. Fun fact--I am also open water scuba certified!
I specialize in survival swimming, stroke technique, adult swim lessons, parent-child classes, and working with swimmers that have special needs. I have experienced and have had great joy working with children that have autism, ADHD, children that are hearing impaired, visually impaired, Down Syndrome, CHARGE Syndrome, Mitochondrial Disease, Spina Bifida, and children with dwarfism. In addition I have had the honor of teaching one student with PURA Syndrome, and one student with Pitt-Hopkins. Both of which are extremely rare. It has been an honor to watch these students exceed in their desire to learn to swim. I have learned from my students, over and over, to never underestimate someone on what they can achieve.
Here at Swim Warriors, we teach ALL students. In addition to my experience, I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education Interdisciplinary Studies.
I have dedicated this season to not only improving our training in our staff but adding substantial help in our office. We expect our scheduling process to be improved this season due to our office finally having a home at our new indoor swim location. We are so very blessed to now have a year round facility to accommodate our growing team.
We look forward to giving your family peace and confidence around the water by instilling a life-saving skill, specifically love and respect for the water, in your swimmer.

"Miss Brooke was so great for our kids! We were new to the area and looking for a way to teach our children how to swim and were recommended Swim Warriors. So thankful for this company and their amazing work! Miss Brooke was compassionate but also no nonsense, which was exactly what my kids needed to get over their fears of the water. We look forward to next season with Miss Brooke and the Swim Warriors!!"
