Ashleigh and Tristian started swimming with us September of 2010 at which time they did not swim at all. It was very evident that our model of keeping the class small and the consistency of the same teacher helped these two kids flourish! Their first teacher was Amber Sucharov-Benarroch. Ashleigh and Tristain were so trusting of Amber that they didn’t want a helper. Week after week you could see their trust in Amber build and their comfort in the water build. Their comfort level became so great that this fall they started with Piper Riley Thompson.

Here is what Piper had to say about this duo…

Every week Tristian and Ashleigh come to class ready to learn and willing to try new things. Tristian worked very hard on keeping his eyes open under water. Now, Tristian flies through the water with his eyes wide open! Ashleigh is working really hard on her arm circles on her back. She comes to class so excited to polish up her technique and her energy is contagious. They are both incredibly safe while swimming and are very polite while waiting for their turn. Tristian and Ashleigh have come so far in their swimming and really deserve this wonderful recognition!
