Alex joined Aqua Essence in Fall 2009, when he was two years old. Alex has always enjoyed being in the water, even from a young age. He enjoys swimming with his friend Luke. Alex has taken lessons at Boni Vital and Pan Am Pool.

Here’s what Stephen had to say:

I would like to nominate Alex Yaschyshyn for the swimmer of the month for February. Alex has been swimming with me for several months, and has progressed greatly in that time. We started out with basic front crawl, but as we have grown together, on whip kick and  standing dives. Alex’s attitude to pushing foward and trying new things is very impressive. He has one of the kindest and most polite personalities. We can get into conversations about a whole manner of things during treading water and Alex always manages to give me more energy and drive to be a better instructor. Keep up the hard work Alex. I’m so glad I had the privilege of teaching you!
