When Frank’s* son, Jeff*, started Waterproofing , he didn’t know how to swim. Initially, Jeff was shy near water. He stayed in the shallow end of the pool and was scared. Slowly, his swimming improved and he gained confidence in his skills. Jeff started looking forward to going to the pool, and the class was a motivator for good behavior—poor behavior resulted in sitting out of Waterproofing.  


Frank has noticed a difference in his son’s academic performance and physical fitness. Most importantly, his mind is at ease knowing his child is equipped to swim.  


“Now, my son knows how to swim, so the ocean feels accessible to him,” Frank says. “He’s comfortable in the pool and looks forward to water activities more than he ever has.”
