Lessons will resume May 1st Book now!
A New Wave Aquatics offers mobile swim instructors, lifeguard services and training as well as water aerobic classes. We have well educated, experienced and certified staff, who love what they do and will help our students fall in love with the water.
Our main goal is to provide water safety knowledge and lessons to areas and families with limited to no access to these services. It is no secret that people of color and low income families have a stigma of not knowing how to swim and/or being fearful of the water. We want to change that!
As soon as I got over my initial shyness of the water I instantly fell in love with swimming. I began swimming competitively at the young age of six and continued for about 10 years. Swimming was a huge part of my childhood. Growing up in Inglewood and south central LA there was a lot of trouble I could have gotten into but swimming kept me busy happy and in shape. I decided to start teaching lessons five years ago, and Fell in love with it just as fast as I did when I was learning to swim myself. It is truly a joy to see children of all ages and adults become comfortable in the water and improve their skills. I believe swimming is an Essential skill to have not only for safety but for health and fitness. As a black swimmer and surfer I did not see a lot of representation in the aquatic world and I started this company to change that.
Along with swimming I also have a background in physical therapy assisting, fitness and sports training (NASM Certified).
