What Parents are saying about Swimming's Cool!
"I really appreciated when Lindsey explained to me how she was supporting and encourging my kids in the water."
"Tyler was awesome! He encouraged my son to push his comfort zone and my son loved every minute while learning a lot and having fun. He felt both safe and fun."
"My son has taken previous lessons but has remained very resistant to swimming. Now he says he loves swimming and wants to take more classes with Alex. HUGE PROGRESS!"
"Taylor was great. My child loved coming to lessons to see her and she made swimming fun despite his fear."
"Sarah has taught my son twice and I love her enthusiasm and excitement when interacting with the kids (and parents too). She is a super star!"
