“I was introduced to Judy in November 2014 when she visited South Africa following my son in-law and swim school owner Brendan Varrie, attending her Infant Aquatics℠ Survival Instructor Training program in April 2014.

In his search to bring a unique swimming technique that could add a new dimension to to his already successful swim school, Brendan identified Judy and the Infant Aquatics℠ as the program that could grow his business in South Africa.

To support this growth in the family business, I attended the 6-week Infant Aquatics℠ Survival training programme in June/July 2015 at Judy’s SWIM•Float•SWIM!℠ facility in Longmont, Colorado.

I found this to be a life-changing experience which left me in awe of Judy – her wealth of knowledge in Infant Aquatics℠ Survival training, her teaching methodology and her world-class facility, have shown me what I would like to aspire to as a trained Instructor.

Judy is a master of her trade – displaying absolute passion and expertise, always acting in the best interest of the child, gaining the support of the parent and delivering results time after time – which serves to endorse her credibility as a Lead Instructor and the high standards of her training program. Watching her in action and how her hands gently control and shape the behavior of the child to achieve the ultimate success of SWIM•Float•SWIM!℠ is inspiring. Seeing the children gain confidence in the water as they grasp this critical survival skill is exhilarating.

Judy’s training methodology, professional guidance, willingness to share her wisdom both in the pool and in terms of running a business and support throughout the 6-week training has equipped me with all the knowledge, techniques, tips, tools and confidence required to bring these newly acquired skills back to South Africa.

Judy’s support extends beyond the pool to the extent that once you have completed the programme you know that you have not only gained the skills to be an Instructor but you have also gained a trusted friend whose support and interest in your progress, will follow you in the months and years to come.

To be trained by Judy has left me in no doubt that I was fortunate to be trained by a true professional in every sense of the word and for that I am grateful.”
