July and August brought three new trainees to Swim Float Swim!
Danai Cole (Oklahoma), Terry Brown (California) and Tonya Earle (Indiana) spent 6 weeks with Judy Heumann learning to teach life-saving aquatic skills and enjoying Colorado in the summer.
Danai Cole has always loved the water and began assisting Infant Aquatics instructor Brandie Russell with maintenance lessons several years ago. She knew early on that she wanted to be part of Infant Aquatics and this decision was confirmed after visiting Swim Float Swim! in 2020. She returned to Ready Set Float! in August, fully certified to teach aquatic survival.
