Nicholas is fantastic with my kids. Has my Autistic 15 year old actually swimming after 2/3 lessons. When we’ve tried so many other instructors and haven’t seen these results. Nicholas is also not letting my 8 year old feel left out by giving him tips to improve his swimming technique. Me and Husband have seen amazing results in the 1 year old also. The best part is the baby isn’t crying and enjoys the lesson. The best! Money well spent! 💜😍

Details: Young child (18 months - 5 years old) • No experience • Comfortable in water • Learn basic strokes • Yes, a pool at my home • 30 minutes • My home, venue, etc.

Nicholas was incredibly patient with my 3.5 year old. He made the lessons very fun while still teaching him a lot. After 3 lessons he is able to glide into the wall and more comfortable in the water!

Can’t thank Nicholas enough for all he does! I have never felt better working with an instructor that truly cared about his students! As an adult learning he truly gives all his effort and time to make sure you feel comfortable after the first session if I could give 10 stars I would!!

Coach Nick is incredible! I immediately connected with his coaching style and booked a package with him. It’s been about 7 lessons and I don’t recognize myself in the water anymore. He’s been able to spark an interest in swimming that I didn’t know I had. I’ve improved so much and it’s just fun to have Nick around. I will definitely continue to have him as a coach year round. 🙏🏻🧜🏻‍♂️
