Julia is 5 years old and has been swimming with Aqua Essence for just over two years.  Julia’s first teacher was Lexi van Dyck who helped cement Julia’s love for the water and this past year Julia was taught by Yael Berkowitz on Saturday mornings at St. James Civic Centre.

Here is what Yael had to say about Julia…

Julia has come so far this month, she has gained a new confidence in swimming and is trying so hard to do all her swims and floats independently! She is swimming independently from the rope to the wall and loving it! She got her Salamander badge this month and is still working hard! Julia is no longer scared to try new swims, or to swim in the deep end. She is working hard on learning new skills, and practicing the ones she already knows!

Well done Julia!  We are all very proud of your hard work and love of the water!
