Prince Aly's Swimming Lessons
My name is Aly and I am very excited to help you reach your swimming goals. I have been swimming in a year round swim team ever since I was 5 years old. From there is where I got the inspiration to be a lifeguard during my senior year of high school. I started working at the YMCA in 2009 and saw an opportunity to start teaching swim lessons. In 2013 I moved to the Virginia Beach area and got certified as an American Red Cross Swim Instructor. I have taught people of all different ages, abilities and disabilities, and I am looking forward to help you as well.

I currently hold both my Water Safety Instructor certification from the American Red Cross as well as the YMCA Swim Lessons Instructor Certification.
