Yesterday in Youth Adaptive we had a big progress day, not just for Trevor but for all 4 of the participants.
At the beginning of last session, we had set goals for each participant in the program. Trevor had started the class with 2 bubbles (PFD) in the pool. One of the goals we had set for him was to remove the bubbles as he made progress in the pool with the long-term goal of complete removal of all PFD’s. Last night in the warm pool, we decided he was ready to try and swim without any form of PFD. He took the challenge head on and swam by himself with the close watch of Morgan just in case he needed her. Alisha, the mother of Trevor, was initially nervous and hesitant to remove the bubble. After she saw how well he did on his own, we are moving toward setting new goals for Trevor moving forward. We hope that soon he will be swimming laps with the older participants! It was very rewarding to see the results after putting the work in. However, it can’t stop now. We will keep working to achieve the maximum skill level possible to help each and every participant in the Youth Adaptive Program!
