Kids build confidence every moment they can proudly say (and sometimes shout) “I did it”!
We're here to help create these breakthrough Pedalheads moments through our fun, adventure-filled swim, bike and trail riding programs for kids across North America.
All grown up
Starting in 1986, our Founder & CEO, Claudia Sjoberg, taught kids how to swim at one location in Vancouver using skills and concepts that put their enjoyment and growth at the centre of our programs.
Since then, Claudia has seen Pedalheads evolve from one program, a handful of kids and a kitchen full of her homemade rice krispie squares, to a multinational company that teaches tens of thousands of kids across more than 250 locations each year.
From comfortable warm water to small classes to engaging teaching methods and games, her success is built upon treating our littlest customers like the biggest deal.
To create breakthrough,
through the best instructional programs for kids in North America and beyond.
PEDALHEADS IS FOR EVERYONE
Happiness is contagious. We're on a mission to inspire as many kids as possible to believe in themselves and live confidently by bringing our programs to underserved communities through Pedalheads+ Plus.
