Ava Landi

Third Year Instructor

Hi! My name is Ava Grace Landi.

I graduated online through a program called Acellus last August. I’m starting classes at Free Chapel in the fall to get my discipleship degree. My favorite subjects are reading, and writing. This will be my 3rd year being a full-time instructor, this job has given me such a sense of purpose and fulfillment.

I have been a part of many swim teams from the time I was four years old. I enjoy running, swimming, babysitting, and spending time with my friends and family. I have had the pleasure of aiding hundreds of swimmers, in concurring their fears of the water as young as 5 months old. In addition, I am certified in CPR/AED/First Aid in adult and pediatrics through the American Heart Association.

Before teaching as a full-time instructor, I was a part of the junior instructing program for four years! Brooke is my oldest sister and watching her help so many kids learn to love the water has inspired me to do the same. I am one of eleven children, giving me a plethora of experience working with children of all ages, and abilities. We have three adopted kids in our house, all with special needs; this has helped me grow in my ability to teach swim.

I feel it is extremely important to instill a love of swim and knowledge of safety around the water at a young age. No matter how "rough" lessons start out for a swimmer {tears and fears}, I continuously see each student gain respect and love of the water in no time. I am so excited to once be a part of that process. Let's get started!

"My advice to swim parents is to keep a positive attitude no matter how “rough” the first few lessons are. Children are watching for their parent's reactions to lessons to see how they will react in the future, if you are excited they will be too! Hype them up, practice skills in the bath, and talk about swimming all the time!"
