“When I turned 50 I felt it was time to begin crossing off some of the things on my very long bucket list. #1 – learn how to swim.

After many years of trying, I lacked the confidence needed to take the leap and let go. I learned about the Baby Otter Swim School–obviously through a friend that had children. I met Marlene and Mindy at a class and they told me about their adult program where they offered private and group lessons. I went for the private lessons.

I started on Monday. The first day I floated holding on. The second day I let go By Wednesday I was doing the breathing techniques and by Friday, I was swimming across the pool. I haven’t stopped since. I love it and I owe it all to the Baby Otter Swim School. Thank you ladies, for your patience and for giving me the confidence to learn such a great water activity. Our encounter was brief, but the experience is everlasting.”
