This was a fantastic experience! Thank you so much for your through approach to teaching swimming, going at my pace and positive encouragement. Your dedication and understanding made a big difference in my ability to trust you and the process. I look forward to future success in the pool and hope to take classes from you in the future.

During the first class, I practiced putting my head under water and blowing bubbles over and over and over again. Finally, I practiced suspending one leg, then two legs. Coach Jamee, who is so calm and friendly, held onto me gradually letting go until I floated by myself for a few minutes. This was Major Progress.
