We had my daughters birthday pool party yesterday, Saturday, May 15, 2010 in pool 1. Our family and our guests had a fabulous time. Joey was our lifeguard and he was wonderful. We had 14 five and six year old kids in the pool, playing and splashing around. Watching all those kids made me tired, but he did it with ease and watched everyone of them. It was truly amazing to me. I was grateful he was there because there was no way I could have watched every one of them. He was also very courteous and helped me with my questions.
While I am on the subject of your wonderful staff, I would also like to say we have a great swim teacher. I have both my children, Jordan (6) and Taylor (3), in swim lessons with Meg on Sundays. She is a great instructor and teaches the kids on the level they understand. She uses submarines sounds to get them to go under water, characters to help them jump in, and cute songs for the water drills.They both attended the spring break swim camp and in 2 months of lessons and one week of swim camp, Jordan (6) who had to use floats and unsure of herself, is now swimming underwater and is on a swim team in our neighborhood. Taylor (3) was afraid of the water and now gets in (with her float) and plays in deep water without fear. She loves her swim lessons and can swim across the pool with floats.Both children had 6 weeks of lessons at the YMCA and did not progress in the swimming ability. Every time I speak with anyone about swimming lessons, I highly recommend you. I cannot say enough on how much my children have learned in such a short amount of time. Thank you and your great staff!
