Splash From the Past!

It’s happened to most of us – you’re looking back at old pictures and find one of yourself with a hairdo or style of clothing that makes you laugh and/or cringe! A similar sense of bewilderment comes from looking at photographs of swim lessons from the not too distant past. Don’t worry; we have no plans of incorporating these techniques.

Check out this spooky shot! Did you know that Little Kickers offers swim lessons to adults, too?

Young Yaya image
We’ll leave you with this throwback picture of one of Little Kickers’ owners and lead instructors, Yaya! Her style has changed but her love of swimming remains.

Do you have any outrageous pictures of your former self at the pool? Send them our way! If you use them in a #splashbacksaturday Facebook post you could win a free swim lesson!
