Dedicated to Teaching Babies and Children Survival skills and to Swim Confidently
Hello! Thank you for visiting my website!
My name is Kristina Hathcock, I am a Mom to 4 beautiful children here and one sweet angel baby girl in heaven. Being a mom and spending time with my family is my most favorite thing!
I became interested in becoming an instructor after 2 of my youngest children went through a similar survival swim/float/swim method and learned so quickly how to save themselves should they ever fall in water, that I knew I had to get certified to teach this amazing method and help other children to be water safe! My two older girls went through traditional swim lessons for 6 years and still could not swim independently, and I did not feel comfortable having them in water with out floaties. When we built our pool I knew my youngest at the time needed to learn to swim quickly and that I didn't have years for him to hopefully learn, I knew he needed to learn NOW. It was worth every penny and in the long run it saved me time and money having him learn so quickly!
In 2016 I became certified with AquaChild, one of the leading swim schools in the state of Florida, per utilizing this specific technique. I completed 200 hours of intensive, hands on, in water training to teach this proven method.
In 2020 I decided to take my training up a notch by traveling to Colorado to train with Infant Aquatics and gained an additional certification with over 100 additional hours of hands on in water training as well as academic study & testing in the areas of child development, behavioral psychology, anatomy, and infant physiology. I also hold a current adult/child/infant CPR/AED (Automated external defibrillator) & First Aid Certification.
My mission is to reduce the number of pediatric drownings and to develop a love for swimming with a focus on competency. Helping babies and children learn to save their own lives, and enjoy the water safely is such a rewarding feeling! I Love what I do!
