A MESSAGE FROM RICHELLE
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.
trained and ready!

Lead Stroke Instructor
Hello! I am Amber Maddens, the Lead Stroke Instructor at Abrams Aquatics Academy. I specialize in advanced swim lessons, beginner stroke lessons and advanced stroke lessons. I was a swimmer for most of my life. I swam at IRSC for 10 years on their travel competition team, starting in elementary school and completing my last year as a senior in high school. My events were the 50-yard freestyle, and the 100-yard breaststroke! My goal with Abrams Aquatic Academy is to teach your child(ren) skills that help prepare them to join a swim team and to grow their love of swimming along with enjoying the competitive sport. Every lesson is designed to support your individual child in the advancement of swim personally suited to them. One on one individual lessons to meet the guidelines set forth for swim team development. In addition, I am a mom of a one little boy, and one big 80-pound fur baby. I look forward to meeting you and your family!
