I am Lynne Zavrski, Owner of Children of the Sea. Let me share a little with you about my swim teaching credentials. I moved to Hawaii in 1975, where I was the first female lifeguard on the beach of Waikiki. I was proud to have broken ground for females to join the ranks. I made several life threatening rescues and received a citation from the major of Fasi.
I participated in triathlons, Century bike rides, and the Waikiki Rough Water Swim. I volunteered at Sea Life Park for eight years, where I helped train dolphins and sea lions. I also conducted the Education Department in lectures for school age children. I taught swimming at city and county pools from 1978 to 1981. In 1982, I started Keiki Kai (which means Children of the Sea in Hawaiian) where I taught private lessons from my home. It was there that I began to develop the individual-paced teaching philosophy of what is today's Children of the Sea Water Safe Program. I opened Children of the Sea in July 1996 in Portland, Oregon. I am an active member of the United States Swim Association. My staff and I would love to introduce your child to the joys of swimming and the security of water safety.
