The Outer Banks Swimming Source- Learn to Swim, Safely!

Summer Swim Lesson Bookings-The Time Has Come!

March 1, 2017


I’m loving these warmer days.  As we enjoy this weather, many of you are starting to contact me about scheduling swim lessons and grabbing lesson time slots.  Please contact me early for the best availability.  If all goes as planned, I will be in ISR’s Master Instructor training program from mid-April through May.  I look forward to hearing from you and to seeing your little ones in the water this summer.  Feel free to email me


From 6 months to 6 years…

July 16, 2016

When is the right time to enroll your child in ISR self-rescue lessons?  As soon as your little swimmer is 6 months old, it’s time to give her the skills she will need to live safely around water.  Email for lesson availability now and year round. You may want to visit the ‘ISR Lessons’ tab of this site to read more about what you can expect for each age, or the ‘Testimonials’ section to hear what other parents are saying about The Swim Lady.


Hope Floats-Swim Safe Forever & Food for Thought Benefit is a Success!

April 26, 2016

We wanted to give a great big shout out to the many vendors who provided delicious food for our event, along with the musicians, volunteers, people who kindly donated to our silent auction and to our fabulous community who came out to support the Hope Floats event and also the Swim Safe Forever and Food for Thought programs.  Thank you all so much for your support.

Hope Floats benefits Swim Safe Forever and Food For Thought in memory of Maddie Hall, a local toddler who drowned in a backyard pool in 2009.

It is in her honor that Hope Floats aims to educate children in our community about water safety and provide nutritious meals for school children in need through Food For Thought.
