Kaitlyn, Paul and Sally!
Today was an amazing day for me! I am a 36-year-old mom of three who
has never put her head under the water and has always felt nervous
and awkward in pools, etc. I finally made the plunge (pardon the pun)
to begin swimming lessons for beginner adults at your pool. I was
completely ecstatic when after just 30 minutes in the water I was
learning to float!!! It was simply incredible to me that as I was
blowing bubbles and immersing my face, my body just naturally began
rising up and I was suddenly floating! The feeling was beyond description,
and the applause from you teachers was the icing on the cake! What
a supportive and encouraging team you are!
I’ve thought for my entire life that swimming was an unattainable
goal, but after receiving guidance from you, Kaitlyn and Paul, I am
so excited to realize that I am going to learn to swim at long last.
I can’t thank you enough! Can’t wait for class tomorrow!
son Ben who is currently in your preschool swim program would love
to continue with another lesson. I understand that there is a waiting
list already started and if possible can we please be on it as well.
He loves your swimming school!! You guys are great! Thanks!
Adult Fitness Swim Program
great year of swimming!!! Thanks so much for your encouragement, support,
and challenge throughout this year. You guys are awesome – and
ridiculously cheerful before 6:00a.m.! ?
It has been so great to see an influx of new swimmers this year. How
fantastic to see the pool FULL this year. Yay! It’s always so
encouraging to see the development of fellow swimmers. Some who start
as completely non swimmers at the beginning grow thru the year to
be able to swim lengths and lengths by the end! That is exciting.
I love that your program allows everyone to come and swim –
not just the hard-core athletes!
goal this year was to really incorporate some improvements to my freestyle
stroke, which I think I have (besides the high elbows – I’m
still working on that). I can definitely tell a huge difference if
I get tired and sloppy. I try to concentrate on all the little things
(head/chest down, stretching, rolling, etc.) and notice that it is
easier to swim that way even though I’m tired.
You know I’m not very competitive, so there are plenty enough
individual and group timed swims for me...
I love having “surprise” workouts. It may be easier to
skip if I was feeling sluggish and knew ahead of time that it was
going to be a sprint day ?
I enjoy the variety that you create for us. There’s always some
new twist to keep us paying attention....
Paul and Sally,
Have to say I have thoroughly enjoyed my year of swimming!! I was
very nervous about starting the program with such experienced swimmers
but have to admit that now I feel like one of the "team".
Even though I am having to get up so early in the morning it always
seems so worth it and I'm disappointed on the few occasions that I
was unable to attend.
Bruce can't get over how much he has enjoyed it as well. For someone
who started out barely being able to swim the width of the pool he
is doing amazing. Quite a testament your fantastic coaching!!
did I like? The whole thing! This was the first time that I’ve
been involved in any kind of organized swimming for over 15 years
and the quality of instruction/ coaching has been superior to anything
I’ve ever experienced.
- I liked the time of day for the workout…a time when nobody
else needs me nor when other things are likely to crop up and crowd
out practice time.
- I liked the length of workout - long enough to feel like you’ve
done something and it’s been worth it to get up!
- I liked the diversity of the workouts - it was always a “surprise”
to see what we’d be in for on any given day….longer distances,
intervals, sprints, etc.
- I liked the fact that you pushed me to my limit…and sometimes
beyond what I thought I could do – yet you seemed to know when
enough was enough! Seeing my “personal best” times come
down gradually throughout the year has been exciting!
It has actually been very enjoyable to see the level of ability in
everyone grow. As I watched around the pool I could see how you tailored
the workouts to fit the abilities and “dis”-abilities
of each of us. Your enthusiasm and love for swimming came through
- I liked that you occasionally took us back to the very basics (breaking
down the stroke) to get us thinking about a particular part of the
- I liked that there was a diversity of size/shape, age and ability
involved in the pool.
- I liked that there was always positive encouragement for and from
other swimmers and more of a focus on personal bests than competition.
