I am writing this letter as a recommendation for Ocean City Aquatics Swim Programs. My children are currently participating in and have been part of this companies’ programs for over 5 years. It has been a very successful, fun and educational endeavor for them each and every time. At different times over this period, at least one, sometimes all, of my three children have been a part of Ocean City Aquatics swim lessons, stroke mechanics or swim team. The skills they were taught were provided with professionalism, confidence and competence. The staff and director were consistently outstanding in their teaching and approach. Ocean City Aquatics has offered us a wide variety of choices suited for children of all ages, including programs designed for children with special needs, which one of my children participated in. I feel my children have always had a good time, mastered many skills and benefited from a very personal approach lessons often fine tuned specifically for their particular need.
Ocean City Aquatics credentials are impressive. It has been partnered with many of our regional recreation programs; the staff and Director are well trained and well versed at what they do. Although the programs are often full, the Director, Lori Ciminelli, is always willing to place that one last child in the session they need. I have personally seen Lori work morning to night, because she has so many families enrolled. She truly cares for her students and will work non stop if needed to provide for her customers.
Over the time I have been with Ocean City Aquatics, I have seen it grow tremendously, mostly by word of mouth and it has become well known in our area. I feel this is a direct result of the commitment of the staff and the personal touch it has always had. The director of the program has a very unique and warm teaching system and style that sets her programs far above the rest, and this is the reason I continue to enroll my children. Lori Ciminelli is a real “people person”, respecting each individual while being able to bring out their personal best. My children leave their lessons with a positive and successful feeling about themselves and meeting their potential. Lori also sponsors lots of “community building” programs in addition to her sessions. Fun activities, field trips, overnights, etc. in order to give back and build lasting relationships between her students/families. Lori does not have to do these extra projects; it is “above and beyond” what her clients pay her to do. I feel she does this because she truly cares about each and every family and wants them to have a myriad of positive opportunities. I feel my children will have a lot of positive accomplishments to look back on as they grow because they were part of Ocean City Aquatics. It’s just all good?
I highly recommend all of Ocean City Aquatics Swim Programs because they provide such professional, organized, developmentally appropriate and in-depth swim systems in a positive learning environment. I will continue to enroll my children with Ocean City Aquatics.
