We Love Safety First!

"My son already had basic swimming skills but now he is an expert swimmer - at four years old! 'Mr. T' really sharpened his skills, but more importantly, gave him confidence. When we go swimming now, people always comment on what a great swimmer he is. I have to agree it's pretty cool to see such a young kid swim across the pool underwater and emerge with a perfect breaststroke!” Many thanks, Karen G. Isaac's mom
