about kassy

Kassy Clifford/Swim To Live, has been teaching private swim lessons to children ages 9 months – 8 yrs., for over 20 years.


She has lived in the Sierra Foothills for over 20 years, with her husband, Doug and their six children. They have recently relocated to Georgia and she is now serving the Greater Chattanooga, TN area. Kassy has taught hundreds of children water survival and swimming skills. Her burden to teach swimming began when her best friend’s son drowned at 3 years old. After that tragedy, she began teaching all of her friends and family’s children, as a favor. Thus, her business has blossomed into Swim To Live.


Kassy holds the view that every 3 year old should know how to swim, regardless of whether or not they “like” the water. It is common for children to fear the process of learning to swim, but this is NOT something children OUTGROW. The younger they are, the easier it is to teach them. She also has extensive experience with special needs children.
