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 continued to grow the business and opened Houston Swim Club Pearland! The husband and wife team then opened Houston Swim Club Cypress in 2013 bringing the HSC total to 5 locations covering Houston’s Northwest, West, Southwest, Central and South areas.
