Customer Testimonials

My son Jace had been going to Richelle for over a year now. He was 10 months old when he started his survival swimming lessons and we haven’t stopped yet. Richelle is fantastic with my son and teaching him the skills he needs to survive. I really couldn’t have asked for a better teacher. Thank you so much!

Miss Richelle was amazing with my son. Before we started lessons, he didn’t even want to go under water, but he really took to her quickly. She always explained to him what to do and why they were doing it. I appreciate all the time she put into teaching our boy an invaluable skill! Thank you!!!
