Have a child who is nervous to swim? Here are the top five books our little swimmers recommend to overcome their fears.
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.”

When parents are evaluating swim schools for their children it is important to consider what your swim goals are for your child.
