OLYMPIAN MICHAEL PHELPS

Michael Phelps has won more medals than any other Olympian. We caught up with him at the Michael Phelps Skill Center in Saco, ME.

The core of the Michael Phelps Skill Center lies within its industry-leading curriculum - Michael Phelps Swimming - that has been developed and enhanced over the course of 30 years. Michael Phelps Swimming (MPS) is a world-class curriculum of swim classes and clinics that includes stroke development & refinement, elite coaching, personal safety, learn-to-swim, water sports & games. The top priority of the Michael Phelps Swimming program is to insure that each participant has an opportunity to achieve his or her goals, whether a novice, accomplished swimmer, or elite.

Michael Phelps Swimming was originally launched under North Baltimore Swim School (NBSS) in the early 1980's led by Cathy Bennett (formerly Lears). Bennett, who holds a Masters in early childhood development and education, developed a learn-to-swim program that focused on building comfort, confidence and a feeling for the water in each child. One of her first students was Michael Phelps, who at a young age did not like to get his face wet so she first built his comfort and confidence in the water while on his back.

Over the years, the program has evolved to provide world-class instruction to swimmers of all ages and abilities.
