My daughter had a near drowning incident at age 3 and would not go near the water for a year. Leslie not only had her in the water on day one, but in under 6 weeks, she had her confidence up and she graduated loving the water again and now had the tools to prevent and protect herself from another incident. She is now on a swim team and is thriving in the pool. We absolutely LOVE KidSwimUSA and Ms. Leslie- she is patient, kind and passionate about this program and the kids participating. We recommend her to everyone we meet!
