Marlin Swim School
Given that roughly two-thirds of the planet's surface is covered with water, Jeff and Kristy Pearson firmly believe that knowing how to swim is a necessary life skill. The Pearsons and their staff of handpicked instructors impart this essential talent in lessons for students of all ages, from adults to children as young as six months. Although Marlin Swim School can help attendees develop the form and technique, but still not the gills, that they need to compete on a team, its main emphasis is on teaching people how to safely stay afloat and swim with fundamental stroke mechanics. Regular practice is the best way to become comfortable with swimming, so the school hosts year-round lessons in its indoor pool, which remains heated to a comfortable 89 degrees regardless of the season.
