Robert learned to swim with Tami when he was 4 years old. He loved swimming to mermaid rock on his barbell. Every year he was so sad when the lessons ended for the summer. When he was in Kindergarten he started swimming year-round on a swim team and is now swimming for the University of Wyoming, a top 40 Division 1 swim team. He loves swimming backstroke and long distances.  2/3/18 Napa Register article

“We are honored to have Makai Swim School of Napa Valley join the ranks of the great schools that make up the membership of US Swim School Association,” said Sue Mackie, Executive Director of USSSA. “Our goal is to continue to provide our members with benefits that support them in their quest to deliver the best swimming and water safety instruction possible for their students. The more children we are able to reach and provide proper swim lessons for through our members, the more lives we will be able to save from drowning.”
