Kassy Clifford has been teaching infants and children (ages 9 months – 99 years) to swim for over 20 years.
Her method is very serious with no frills. She does not play with the kids in the water, nor does she use props. This may seem harsh, but Swim To Live’s method works.
You may be thinking that 15 minutes does not seem like enough time. But, it is actually ideal length of time for a young child’s attention span. Anything beyond 15 minutes has proven to be non-productive.
Kassy is a very patient and gentle instructor, focusing on teaching basic swimming survival skills. She teaches private 15 min lessons with a 95% success rate in first 4 – 6 days.
Swim To Live lessons take place in a heated salt-water pool. This makes it more comfortable for your child, and gentler on their eyes.
Attention parents!!! Swim to Live is a life saving, intensive swim program. If you are wanting a pleasant introduction to water, this program is NOT for you. In the first few sessions, you can expect your child to appear as if they are drowning. They will gag, scream, cry, plead and sometimes even vomit. We promise you that this is very normal AND strongly suggest that you take a walk for the first few lessons. Encourage your child in between lessons and help them to practice what they are learning. This will reinforce what they are learning and build their confidence. Parents, be strong and brave and watch your children emerge into safe and confident, water lovers.
