Learning to Swim as a Teen

November 04, 2019

Luke Harris, a student at the SafeSplash Swim School in Bellevue, WA, tells his story about learning to swim at the age of fourteen years old.

Being a teen who can’t swim is tough.  It’s extremely embarrassing to have to make up excuses to avoid hanging out with friends at the community pool just to avoid having to explain you can’t swim. Before I finally learned to swim, I was anxious about bringing up topics that might trigger the dreaded question “Can you swim?” Of course, whenever this question did come around, I would always just say yes, as I didn’t want to make the situation awkward or feel that embarrassment. Who would? Eventually, I was tired of feeling inferior to my friends. I mustered up the courage and decided I was going to learn to swim!

Lisa, My Mom, Learning to Swim

May 17, 2019

Lisa Adams, mom of Houston SafeSplash franchisee and two time Olympian Cammile Adams, has lived the majority of her life around the pool. “As the girls grew up, we spent countless hours at swim meets around the county” Lisa remembers. Lisa followed Cammile and her twin sister, Ashley, to swim practices and meets year after year after year.

However, Lisa never truly learned the skill part of swimming. “The girls would always joke around with me and tell their friends I didn’t know how to swim. I never really thought much of it. Even after Cammile made the Olympic team, I never thought that I should take lessons and learn the proper skills.”
