“My son had a 30 minute session with the instructor tonight and I was so impressed with Foss. In just 30 minutes they helped with breathing differently and worked on techniques in a stroke and placements of the hands. My son has been going to another location in town and has gotten all the way through Level 7 but they haven’t taught him techniques in the strokes. My 8 year old says that he wants to be an Olympic Swimmer and I believe that Foss with help him learn a lot better!”  – Nadine

“We put our 17 month old their back float baby 1 program and could not be happier! At 19 months old we have already seen a huge improvement in his confidence and comfort in the water! Making sure our son was a confident and strong swimmer was extremely important to us and we could not be happier with the Foss facility, the atmosphere and the teachers! We’ve enjoyed our experience so much and value what has been taught that we’ve already signed up for back float baby 2 and plan on continuing his swimming lessons with Foss beyond that!” – Allison
