Hi! I am Coach Kathy. I am the owner and head instructor at ABC Aquatics. I have been swimming for 26 years, and have been teaching children and adults to swim for the past 15 years. I have completed several specialized training's and have been certified through Red Cross as a Lifeguard and a Water Safety Instructor.
I have taught at several different schools in the Inland Empire and Orange County areas. I learned, mastered, and analyzed several different teaching methods and developed a curriculum and teaching style that ensures fast results.
What makes ABC Aquatics different from the other swim schools is that we individualize our curriculum to each student. We keep the instruction simple, having our students accomplish one goal at a time. This helps our students build confidence, as a result our students tend to learn much faster.
Unlike most programs, we first make sure each child is water safe first, completing a survival float (an example in the video below), before teaching stroke technique. We teach everything step by step, and we are PERFECTIONIST, your child will have a beautiful stroke when they are done with our program. Many of our students have walked onto the Brea Aquatics Swim team, which is the hardest team to get onto in our area.
Most importantly, my instructors and I love what we do. We are passionate about teaching and saving lives. This is why ABC Aquatics was created. ABC Aquatics is a swim school that is centered around the student. We want our students to feel comfortable and love coming to swim lessons.
