I am writing to give a huge Mahalo to the coaches and board of the new swim team, Swim Kauai Aquatics. Our children have started swimming again and are enjoying every minute of it. Swim practices are fun and educational.
The coaches are very attentive to the swimmers during practice, encourage the swimmers, help them improve their strokes, and have even offered extra help to learn starts and turns.
The variety of practices, number of coaches on deck, and the ratio of coaches to swimmers allow for individual attention and good workouts for all swimmers. We look forward to traveling to meets more often to give our daughters racing experience and frequent measures of how much they are improving.
Thank you to these dedicated, well trained and very experienced coaches, Ro Davis, Mary Davis, Greg Davis, Melissa Hall and Dick Oliver, and board members Mike and Joanne Woltmon and David and Coco Baldwin who have decided to offer a much-needed opportunity to the youth of this island. I know that it has not been easy to start such an endeavor, but it is certainly worthwhile.
