Team Lessons!

Each Fall and Spring the Bates Swimming and Diving team offers a lesson program for kids in the community. This Spring we saw over 60 local kids get one on one lessons from a member of the team. Each lesson lasted 1/2 hour and each student met with the same swimmer 8 times. As you can imagine, the learning that took place was phenomenal. Even better though was watching my swimmers interact with kids from the community. The smiles were shared by all - and everyone had a blast! 

and of course, I had to show off my little guy!
