“I’m so glad I decided to learn to swim and conquer my fear.” Patricia Vaz has been taking private lessons with Andrew for 2 months now. She has made significant progress. She can now float independently and does not fear putting her face in the water. Swimming lessons is the highlight of her week!

My son Samuel has been a participant in swim lessons for about 4 weeks and his favorite stroke is freestyle. Since starting swim lessons he is doing better with the mobility of his arms during backstroke. His favorite swim instructor is Joshua because of how excitable and engaging he is. Samuel's favorite part of swim lessons is when he gets to play on the surfboard at the end of the lesson.
