Allison and Jake have been taking swim lessons with Cooksey's Lifeguard and Swim for three years now. Jake was terrified in the water and now knows the fundamentals of all the strokes and is swimming laps! Allison went from splashing around the pool during pool parties to being a pro at all of the strokes. During her swimlessons her instructors really dig deep into her techniques. This winter she has joined in a club team that swims year round. Next summer she will continue swim lessons with Cookseys to continue to perfect her stokes.

“My son, a four year old, was absolutely terrified to get his head wet. The first few swim lessons he cried and cried. But the swim instructor was so patient with him, and really created this trust. Within three swim lessons with Cooksey's Lifeguard he was proudly showing me how he could blow bubbles and hold his breath under the water. I was really impressed and look forward to more swim lessons!”

"Owen and Johanna started swim lessons with Cooksey's Lifeguard and Swim two summers ago and are now both very comfortable in the water. When Owen was born they had to put tubes in his ears, which made it impossible for him to be under the water, creating a fear in him and for us (his parents). I honestly never thought we would be able to get him to swim. After one summer of swim lessons we were able to get Owen over his most terrifying fear! He is now completely water safe and starting to learn the different strokes when in swim lessons. Johanna, his younger sister, was a little more fearless, she was easy to get inside the water, but I Didn't trust that she would be safe around it. Cooksey's Lifeguard taught her how to be safe around the water, and now she is learning to go further and further in the water without help from her swim instructor."

Emily joins us every summer in between her sports at Palmdale High School to cross train. Cross training in the water enables her to improve greatly in her sports during the school year, such as track (pole vaulting), and cross country. We have an extremely intense cross training program with Emily. We really focus on defining the muscles she uses for her other sports, and improve her endurance drastically. Emily is a senior this year, and looking into UCLA as her top choice, where she has applied for a pole vaulting scholarship.
