Spring 2016 Week 2

After all the excitement from starting back up that surrounded Week 1, Week 2 was great for both the instructors and kids to get back into their lessons and focus on achieving the goals they have set this semester! The kids worked on skills like learning freestyle kick, floating on their back, and starting new strokes like breaststroke!

We ended the lessons with a game time, where different lesson times played pool games like Red Light/Green Light, Sharks & Minnows, and Basketball!

We have also uploaded all of the pictures we have so far from this semester on our Facebook Page which you can access by clicking on the Facebook button below. We will also be posting pictures from past lessons that we have not yet uploaded, so be on the look out for those as well! We had a great week 2 and can't wait for our third lesson this Sunday! We hope you have a fantastic week!


The Swim 4 Success Team

Spring 2016 Week 1

We are so excited to be back with you all after a long winter and Mardi Gras break! Our instructors were eagerly waiting to get back in the pool and get back to swimming! Each lesson started by meeting everyone in our lesson times, and going over the safety rules again. The kids were ready to jump back in and show what they remembered from last semester!

We also want to recognize and welcome our new instructors and new families who have joined us this semester, and we can't wait to share this experience with you all. We are so excited to start another semester and we are counting down the days until our next lesson! See you all next Sunday!

Thank You!
