Group swim lesson from summer 2021:
This was our 4th lesson where I tested each student's confidence in the water on their own to do unsupported float.
Group swim lesson from summer 2021:
In this picture, I have my arms extended forward to provide support to the student to come forward on her own. Each student has a turn to try and see other sisters go before them.

Whose pool is this?
-This is a rented pool! It belongs to someone who I am renting through Swimply.com
How can I make sure this is a safe pool?
-Yes, safety is the number one concern which I also take very heavily. I have rented this pool in the past and the pictures you see on this page are all ladies who joined us at this pool
Will I be able to shower after pool time?
-Unfortunately no. Since this is not my pool and because it's limited-time rent, showering will need to be done at home.
Below is the pool information:
