What did attendees from previous SLU Conferences have to say?

Today I have been blessed. I am here at Jim's Orlando Conference. I have already learned so much. Anyone who follows Jim on his website and through facebook gets to see great clips and I have always appreciated that, but to meet with him in a class you get to see that the love for kids and swim he speaks about is very sincere. Thanks Jim for the inspiration and confidence to be the "BEST" instructors. You have made me a better instructor and for that I will forever be greatful. What an awesome day at the conference! Thank you so much Jim for offering a "wealth" of information.”Michelle SmithInstructor Swim School Owner

Thanks for the great workshop. You are a terrific teacher. You are very thorough and insightful. You clearly have a desire and an ability to connect with everyone, regardless of or perhaps with an extra appreciation for our respective backgrounds. We are all teachers and our time (my time for sure) with you added to our tool box so we can be better, more effective teachers. Thanks Jim. Keep sharing your insights and passion for safety, teaching and aquatics. Allan KopelUSA-Swimming Coach

Once again thanks for holding a great conference. Your materials and resources are excellent for instructors who want to gain more ability with teaching techniques and perspective on teaching the new and budding swimmer. Also have the greatest respect for your attitude of being willing to share info with others and respect for others opinions and views. Keep up the great work!Victoria CampbellMiddle Georgia LIttle Swimmers

"Jim...thanks for consultation on Friday afternoon and for the conference on Saturday. I am really looking forward to adding what we learned to our program."Matt SprangSwim School & Team Owner
Greater Philadelphia Aquatic Club

"Thank you for the conference! We have enjoyed your DVDs for some time, but it was well worth the trip to hear you in person and be able to ask you questions. I have already begun to implement the things I learned and am seeing an immediate change in my students. "Sterling SmallwoodSwim Instructor & Coach
Louisville, KY

As a participant in the workshop yesterday, I concur that the information beautifully delivered was bountiful. Albeit I have taught swimming since 1967, I shall be delighted to incorporate these novel ideas concerning delivery to my young students!Jane Garvey-ReillyLearn-to-Swim Professional

"I found Jim's presentations very informative. Not only did he provide me with several great ideas to make my lessons better, he also reinforced ideas and concepts that I already had. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about teaching children how to swim and it shows. I really enjoyed the conference and look forward to attending again in the future. Thanks!"Ryan MaynardSwim Instructor & Coach

"As an instructor and instructor-trainer for 25 years I thought I knew it all! It was very refreshing to sit among other professionals and share ideas and techniques. Your topics were right on, your videos were well done and I loved that you put "Father Forgets" in your presentation. It put into perspective the humanness needed in our lesson plans. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your conference!"Sue MuellerAquatics Director
Kokomo Family YMCA
Kokomo, Indiana

I honestly learned A LOT at today's conference. Thank you so much for your time and I do hope we may keep in touch. I do plan to share with my swim instructors everything that I learned from today's conference. God bless you and your family and I pray that Swim Lessons University continues to grow and keeps the main goal that all of us instructors have in mind: to teach others how to swim so that they may decrease any chances of danger or harm towards themselves. God bless.Greg HarrisGreg Harris, Jr.

"Coach Reiser's conference provided valuable information on a variety of topics from coaching techniques to customer service, with an approachable and upbeat presentation style. At Safety Before Skill Swim School we use his DVDs as part of our coach training and I recommend them to swim schools as well as independent instructors. Sharing information with each other makes each of us a better coach and business manager."Coach Karen Lamoreaux, Swim School OwnerSafety Before Skill Co

"Thank you, Jim, for the seminar. I learned some new ways to teach and I also loved that you reinforced how I teach swim lessons to my five year old and under swimmers. I share your passion on helping young children learning to swim and becoming safer swimmers."Aileen DonnellySwim School Director
