Last year, I wrote a review of Pegasus Swimming, which – at the time – had masterfully taken my cautious little boy and turned him into a very competent, confident swimmer. Miss Q was 2.5 years old when we decided to put in a swimming pool last summer and I asked Lucas, the owner of Pegasus, if he thought she could also benefit from lessons. Within six weeks, she could keep her head above water and travel about a metre. But then winter fell and we went back to group swimming lessons through the city, and she didn’t progress. After a scary moment when we re-opened our pool this year and discovered that she could no longer do that metre-long swim, it was (thankfully) time to head back to Pegasus. Within 20 minutes, her instructor had her jumping off the side of the pool and swimming back to the ledge to safety. Two lessons later, she was swimming a few metres. And one lesson after that, she was instinctively putting her face into the water and could swim the entire width of the pool – often on just one breath. At home, she can now swim the length of our pool and is progressing at a shocking rate. The credit goes entirely to the amazing staff at Pegasus Swimming in Courtice. Thank you!
