What Our Families are Saying

I went from crying toddlers in the bathtub, to girls that absolutely refuse to get out of any body of water. I think they will now grow gills and fins, for they will spend hours swimming confidently in a pool, ocean, river, lake, or hot spring.

Both kids soared in their swimming skills and passed all levels beautifully! … Now, my daughter is going out for the high school swim team…all because she’s got confidence in her swimming abilities!

My boys now, would live in a pool if they could, and are fantastic swimmers!
