Perspective: Mom & Daughter Bond Through Swim Lessons

Ann Trask always wanted to know how to swim. She took swim lessons as a child, but never progressed into a competent swimmer.

“I also wanted to learn so as my daughter’s swimming skills progressed, I could keep up with skill level and ensure that she is safe in the water,” said Ann.

The two bond over conversations about swimming, watching swimming videos and swapping stories about what each learned in the week’s class. “I also think learning as an adult shows her that you are never too old to learn something new and, sometimes, it takes time and practice to progress,” said Ann.

Learning to swim has given Ann confidence. It’s inspired her to try other new experiences too.

“I would recommend learning to swim at any age. My instructor Brandi has been fabulous and is patient with adult learners.”
