Lori’s Aquatics has been a part of our family since 1996, when our daughter began taking swimming lessons at age 3. The programs developed by Lori’s Aquatics have made both of my children appreciate swimming and learn the different strokes with great proficiency. We highly recommend her programs as an excellent way to begin or continue teaching the principles of swimming, sportsmanship and confidence.
Lori’s Aquatics does an excellent job teaching all different levels of swimmers from their beginning “Learn To Swim” Program, their “Stroke and Development” Program and the advanced programs allowing for successful participation on a swim team. My daughter had completed all three phases of the program and due to Lori’s Aquatics is still swimming twice a week with a goal to become a member of the high school swim team and possibly later in life, to coach new swimmers in the way she was taught at Lori’s Aquatics. My son will be joining his first swim team this year, due to the patience, confidence and well rounded program that Lori’s Aquatics has taught him.
I have watched Lori and her staff work with kids at all stages other swimming programs from the kid who is afraid of water to the kid trying to shave a few seconds off his time to be the best swimmer he can. During all those times, I have*noticed that Lori and her staff have enforced the basics to the kids of being patient, working hard as an individual and as a team member, respecting others, good sportsmanship and enforcing the basics of swimming.
I will never forget when my daughter qualified for the NVSA Regionals for her swim team and another girl was not. The other girl’s mother badgered Lori to remove my daughter from the team, but Lori told the mother, my daughter would make the decision about the Regionals. My daughter went to Lori and was told she was on the team, but if she felt the other girl should go, she could remove herself for the benefit of the team. My daughter spent two days looking at swim times and meet records. She finally told Lori that the other girl should go, since her times were a little bit better and the other girl might help the team win. Lori would have supported my daughter’s decision either way, but gave her the chance to show her maturity and sportsmanship.
A person who can teach swimming, sportsmanship and values is someone I can highly recommend!
