Learning to swim for the first time can be an uphill battle. Although with the help of a great instructor and knowledgable lifeguards, it can turn that battle into a victory. This past fall we had a great time hanging out at the local C.W. Avery Family YMCA in Plainfield, Illinois, on another challenging water assignment for the YUSA. There we met swim instructors Rachel and Sammie who were an inspiration to our talent in the water. The kids were ecstatic to show off their swim moves and learn a few new ones. Of course we wanted to break out the underwater camera housing for some dynamic angles at and below the surface. Check out some of our favorite shots below.
