What is the best part about working at the Aquatic Center?

“No one day here at the Aquatic Center is ever the same.  I love the challenges and variety that comes up.  When I get the chance to get out and teach, nothing beats the joy on a child’s face the first time they get up skiing, it’s remarkable”
