About Me

Hi, it’s nice to meet you!

I began my journey as a swim coach in 2005 and fell in love with it! Coaching swimming brings me pure joy, and I am truly passionate about teaching this life-saving skill. In addition to being a coach, I am a mom of two, a former behavior therapist, and school teacher. Over the years, I have seen the limited progress of students in oversized classes with little individual attention coupled with short lesson lengths. As a coach, I was frustrated with this model of teaching and believed that swimming could be both a more effective and an enjoyable experience!

What customers say about Christine Stokes

We love working with you. You have a unique skill set and ability to work with children that is highly valued and critical to teaching the importance of water safety and swimming.I loved the use of positive reinforcement; you have a great balance of positive and neutral feedback. The use of motivation through positive praise and encouragement supported both kids soooo very well. The positive relationship you created with both kids made you reinforcing for them which helped them push themselves harder

Crystal G

Our youngest struggles with Sensory Processing Disorder and anxiety and you were more than patient and understanding in meeting her with where she was at and balancing her needs with the expectations of the lesson. Our girls are also at different levels of abilities and you do a great job working with them individually on what they need for the next step of growth.
