“Miller Swim School has been an important part of our families’ life for two generations. We started with Larry and Rita Miller as instructors back in about 1972 when our son , Brad, was 3 years old. When our daughter, Angie, was in diapers, she started swim lessons. Now Brad and Angie are both married and have two children each (our four grandchildren, Nathan and Corina; and Max and Joey). Both Nathan and Corina completed through Level 8 at Miller. Max and Joey, who are both 10 years old now, are in Level 6 at Miller currently. Joey is a member of the Jenks Swim Team and has been competing for over a year.
What started with us as parents wanting to provide swimming safety for our children has developed into an activity for both our two children and our four grandchildren that they have enjoyed, they have done very well with and have come to love this “sport”, thanks to Miller Swim School. The personal growth these kids have gained at Miller Swim School is phenomenal. Swimming has been a valuable skill for them to learn confidence in their abilities and apply those skills in individual and different ways.
The instruction they have received has been professional and fun for our kids and grandkids. The time and money has been well spent throughout these many years. The instructors at Miller are kind and gentle as they teach the “right” methods so kids learn the strokes correctly and can become strong swimmers, whether for safety, for pleasure, for competition, or for learning to save another person’s life through Life Guarding. The ribbons they receive are based on achievement of skill levels passed with proficiency and are well earned by the swimmers that receive them. When the child receives a ribbon, it is something to be very proud that they have worked hard to achieve.
Kudos to Miller Swim School after 50+ years and going strong today helping our babies be safe in and around the water.”
