What I love most about swimming is the sheer joy seen on a child’s face when they learn how to swim. They have overcome their fear of the water and can now enjoy it with their friends and family.

My favorite thing about being on a swim team is passing on my love of the water and joy it brings a person’s life.

The best thing about being a swim coach is that swimming changes people’s lives and gives them a sense of accomplishment when they have mastered the skill.
