John is most proud of helping so many children and adults overcome a fear of the water and learn to swim and enjoy the water. “The swimming instructor’s challenge is to help each child develop his/her swimming skills. This requires creative planning that incorporates toys, games, and FUN activities. Effective swimming instruction — regardless of the age of the learner — always focuses on adapting swimming skills to the age and physical strengths of the learner. One of the most important gifts a parent can give to protect his/her child is swimming instruction. Knowing how to swim safely and with confidence saves lives. Swimming is a life skill, one that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. Whether the swimmer wants to focus on distance swimming, competitive swimming, or swimming for pleasure, swimming is great exercise and low-impact. Swimming also opens the door to many other sports ranging from boating and kayaking to surfing and scuba diving.”
