Abrams Aquatic Academy was founded by Richelle Abrams, a married mother to three amazing children ranging in age from 5 to 21 years old and two fur babies. Richelle and her husband have devoted their lives to raising three self-sufficient and productive kids. Richelle and her family live a busy and active lifestyle living in a place that most people vacation in. Part of the responsibility of taking advantage of their lifestyle is making sure that water safety is first and foremost in their lives. Richelle is a certified PEDIASWIM infant swim instructor and is looking forward to providing your family with the best quality swim instruction in Port St Lucie and the Treasure Coast.


Years ago, my husband and I wanted to sign up, at that time our 3-year-old up for “swimming” lessons.  We had never heard of Survival Swim our older two went through “normal” swim lessons at the YMCA. After several attempts to contact local schools and finally getting a call back we ended up enrolling our little one in survival swim lessons. At that time, we still were not educated on survival swim lessons. It was not until watching the process unfold in a 6-8-week time span that we understood the difference.  For me personally, it was a total game changer. Watching my struggling then 3-year-old learn breath control, roll-over to float and swim-float-swim techniques developed a passion in me to share these life saving skills with other families.
