Setting Goals for Your Little Swimmer

February 24, 2017

My name is Emily Rehfeld better known as “Miss Emily”. I was born and raised in Denver. I started swimming at an early age and started swimming competitively at the age of nine through the first years of high school. After getting my water safety instructor certification I found out my passion was to teach kiddos to swim. I have been in aquatics and have taught for fifteen years, now going on my seventh year with SafeSplash.

Keaton certainly didn’t come into this earth a swimmer, like all kids or adults, depending on when you start, swimming is a life skill like any other sport.  It takes time, dedication, great instruction and repetition to get good at it.
