The Swim Girl

3bbb3-swim3It’s getting hot out herrre, to borrow a phrase from Nelly, and that means people are taking advantage of their pools. But that can be quite the problem if you don’t know how to swim.

Today, swim classes are offered for both children and adults, and Jackson resident Laura Uecker has created a unique part-time business that specializes in teaching adults to swim. It’s the age of the Internet, and Uecker has gone high-tech. At her website clients can look at her schedule and register online to take classes.

Uecker, 35, also has access to an underwater camera and films clients for an additional fee so they can perfect their technique by watching themselves swim. She also edits the video on her home computer. Check out our story in The Clarion-Ledger.
