I am so grateful to have found Swim with the Tide. Kelly, an amazing teacher, was so kind and gentle with our son whom has special needs. She was able to take him from literally just sinking to the bottom of the pool to being able to swim and climb out the side of the pool or get safely to the steps. What a gift that is for any child in Florida! Thanks to this team there is another safe child!

Coach Nicholas is awesome. He immediately connected with our son. Our 5 year old son showed great improvement after his first lesson. He couldn’t wait to practice the things he learned later in the day and can’t wait for his next lesson. We’re really happy we made the decision to have Coach Nicholas work with him!

I am so glad I chose Swim With The Tide for my 5 year old grandson. He immediately felt comfortable with Coach Nicholas & is quickly learning from him. My grandson looks forward to each lesson which is such a relief for our family. I highly recommend Coach Nicholas & Swim With the Tide.

Working with Nicholas was a delight. I was looking to improve my swim stroke in advance of a triathlon. Nicholas was super helpful and helped correct my form. His ability to simplify things is impressive and makes it easier to learn. I’ve already noticed some improvements!
