MAKING A SPLASH
Testimonials from our parents...
May 03, 2017
My 5 year old son had a HUGE fear of the water. After not making any progress in group lessons, it was recommended that we try private with the company owner, Noelle. Dealing with children with fears of the water is her specialty. 6 months later, even Noelle is amazed at how well he is doing! He has no more fear, is swimming short distances on his own and has even started treading on his own! We couldn't be happier with the investment we've made with Super Splashers. We're super excited to start group lessons and summer camps at Snowden Bridge this summer!

I've had my three-year-old son in lessons since he was 11 months old. Overall, the teachers he has had have been wonderful and he has learned to be comfortable in the water. He really looks forward to going to swim lessons. He's learned important survival skills in the water and is now starting to learn how to swim on his own.

We started our children in swimming lessons with SSA when my oldest was a little over a year old. After taking other mommy/baby swim classes I was so thankful to find a program that took a structured (yet still fun!) approach with this age group. Pool safety and swim basics are established in that very first water experience. Those basics have consistently expanded as she has gained more confidence and skills in the water. She is now 3 and is taking classes on her own. I love to see her trying new things that she was terrified of at the beginning of a session, and then proudly showing off those new skills. Noelle and her team are truly wonderful with their students.

I highly recommend SSA to anyone interested in having their child learn to swim! My daughter has had great success in the private and group lessons. All of the instructors are very nice, very attentive to each of the children. They also teach the children and go over at each session, water safety rules. My daughter wants to do swimming year around with SSA! Thanks SSA!!!

What could be better than watching your children gain skill and confidence in an area that will benefit their fitness, leisure, and safety throughout their lives?
As far as I'm concerned, Super Splasher is THE resource for swimming instruction in our area. Noelle is a true expert at what she does, with the advantage of being a mother herself. She works with parents to create the ideal learning situation for each child, and the smiles on their faces show that it's a perfect approach.

Our family has experienced Super Splasher Aquatics in many capacities: from Mommy & Me classes to group lessons and with a vast variety of instructors and we can't help but keep coming back! Every instructor we have had has been nurturing while appropriately challenging, instilling confidence without being too pushy. The variety of classes, schedules, and locations shows how much they care about providing the right fit for your child. My son has blossomed under their patient tutelage, going from afraid to let go to jumping in full throttle. We will encourage him to continue to grow and thrive as a swimmer within their program and I would recommend Super Splasher Aquatics to anyone else who wants that for their child.

Noelle has an amazing way of working with young children around and in the water. Most importantly, Noelle and her team put their primary emphasis on safety around and inside of the pool. My 5 year-old recites water safety rules as easily as she recites her ABC's! As a parent, water safety is my primary concern and I looked for a long time to find a swim instructor that had this same primary concern. I was fortunate enough to find Super Splasher Aquatics. Both of my children adore Noelle and love going to swim lessons. Noelle has formed strong connections with both of my children and it is evident that they not only enjoy swimming, but they also enjoy having Noelle as their swim instructor. One of Noelle's best characteristics is her ability to stretch children outside of their comfort zone in a safe and positive environment. She is very encouraging and uses various methods to help kids learn new skills. Noelle is also the kids' biggest cheerleader when they succeed. I truly believe my children would not be swimming at the level they currently are without Super Splasher Aquatics.

I would recommend Super Splasher Aquatics to any parent looking for swim lessons for their children. It is a great program with good instructors and an amazing owner! Super Splasher Aquatics is by far the best swim instruction in this area. The low student/teacher ratio allows for individualized attention and more rapid progression than in a typical large class. All of the instructors are top-notch, and seem to really be able to gently push children past the inevitable swim hurdles they all face. I would highly recommend Super Splasher Aquatics for any level or ability!

I am very pleased to write this letter of recommendation for Noelle Callas. Noelle has my been my sons swimming instructor for three months. During this time, I have had the great pleasure to come to know Noelle. It is often difficult to introduce a young child to a new authority figure, much less one that asks them to enter the watery depths. Noelles patience, caring approach and firm control earned my sons trust immediately. My four year old continues to show great improvement under her instruction and she stands out among his many teachers with her ability to interact with children and ease their reservations in a pleasant manner.
Danielle Lissak, Mom to Nate
Noelle has an incredible amount of patience and love for teaching children. Each week she comes prepared with new and exciting games, songs, and toys to keep children interested in the water while at the same time teaching them how to swim. She has a gift for fostering a childs ability in the water no matter what their skill level or personality is. Noelle has become engrained in our community and is highly recommended among families with young children. We will continue to follow her as our swimming instructor for many years to come.

In the Fall of 2009 we had 3 of our children go through swimming lessons with Noelle Callas. All three thoroughly enjoyed Noelle and her teaching methods. Noelle is pleasant, approachable and has the interests of the children center stage as she teaches them swimming. Furthermore, her approach is much like that of a school teacher and she actively engages in the approach from theory to practice. We would highly recommend Notelle to any parent seeking the very best swimming lessons for their children.
The Stephenson Family
I would like to recommend Super Splasher Aquatics to any parent looking for a swim program for his/her child. The swim program is individualized to fit your childs needs and changes as your child develops as a swimmer. Water safety is an important part of each lesson and the children are asked to share a water safety rule before entering the water. Once in the water, old skills are reviewed and new skills are introduced. Each lesson usually ends with a fun activity for the child that involves some of the different skills presented in the lesson. When Samantha began taking lessons in the summer of 2009, she loved being in the water; however, she was afraid to put her face in the water. By the end of the summer, she was swimming to the bottom of the pool for diving sticks. At the age of four, she continues to take swim lessons and is beginning to learn the different swim strokes. She has made so much progress over the course of the year. While she has made much growth as a swimmer, I believe the greatest gage of success is in Samanthas attitude towards swimming. She cant wait to get into the water and swim. She enjoys learning how to swim and is willing to practice her swimming at home. If you asked her what her favorite things are, swimming would be one of the first things she mentions to you.
