About Sarah

Sarah Dodge

My name is Sarah Dodge and I am a Certified Infant Swimming Self rescuing Instructor. I have over 200 hours of hands-on in water training with babies 6 months and up. On top of that schooling I have personally taught 1000's of children in Citrus county how to swim, self rescuing skills, snorkel, and stroke development. This is my 15th year owning and operating PediAquatics. I have obtained the skills and confidence needed to teach your child how to independently swim face down in the water and then independently roll to their back to rest and float, then flip back over to swim. The sequence is known as 'swim float swim'. When the child is ready they will also learn to swim above the water, dive, and snorkel.

I  have over  200 hours of  hands on in water training with babies 6  months and up. I feel blessed to  have the privilege  of dedicating my life to  the safety and wellbeing of children in and around the  water.
