Story

In Scott Carrier’s family, learning to swim means spending a few weeks at Al and Betty Switzer's Aquatic School in Center Sandwich, New Hampshire.

Al works with youths ranging from sobbing, hysterical four-year-olds to confident young teenagers, and seven years ago he helped Alyce Carrier earn her official Beginner 1 Level card.
