Thank you, Baby Otter Swim School, for teaching my granddaughter to swim. When we arrived at the Marriott in July, she had just finished three lessons with a very reputable coach in our local area. She was so terrified of the pool that she hadn’t progressed beyond very quickly dipping her mouth and nose in the water. She is 11 years old and lives in Florida. Swimming is a life skill she desperately needs.
When I saw the Baby Otter Swim School sign that promised “Learn to swim in 5 lessons,” I was skeptical…but desperate. It was at least worth a try.
Coach Abby met us at the hotel pool and spent a few minutes getting to know my granddaughter. In a very short period of time she was able to gain her trust. Within an hour my granddaughter was diving down to retrieve rings from the bottom of the shallow end of the pool. By the next day, she was jumping from the swimout at the deep end. Her technique needs work; however, as promised, she learned to swim. Her mother, father, and I are so grateful for Abby and the Baby Otter program.
I am pleased to report that my granddaughter attended a pool party yesterday. She stayed in the water for hours and had fun playing games with the other children.
You have our deepest gratitude for teaching our precious girl to swim. The experience was wonderful. The outcome was a life skill that’s priceless.
Thank you for all you do.
