I come from a long line of fish....
My Dad learned to swim in Atlantic Beach, New York and was a seasonal ocean lifeguard in Far Rockaway, New York before attending seminary and joining the U.S. Air Force during the Korean war. He swam into his 80's. My Mom has always been an active swimmer and continues to work out in the pool.
Our parents insisted that all 3 of their kids learned to swim, join the swim team and follow the American Red Cross swimming program from Beginner through Water Safety Instructor. My sisters and I all served as lifeguards and watersports instructors at pools, lakes and summer camps. My nieces and nephews thoroughly enjoy water time!
My wife Nancy and I share a love for the water...swimming, waterskiing, sailing and paddling. We were probably the first couple to bring their own slalom skis to the Club Med in Moorea on our Honeymoon. She has been a Board member of the Coggan Family Aquatic Center and Swim with Mike San Diego.
Our 15 year-old daughter Shayna is the strongest swimmer of us all. In the water beginning as an infant, she has participated in the San Diego Junior Lifeguard program since age 9, competes for the Wind n' Sea Swim Team and races in the anual La Jolla Rough Water Swim. Shayna's strong ocean swimming is a tremendous source of pride for our family.
We help support Swim with Mike - a foundation that organizes swimming events to raise money for college scholarships for physically challenged athletes, with $20 million raised since 1985.
To say we love the swimming community is an understatement...the San Diego Junior Lifeguard Foundation ensures that children have an opportunity to learn to swim, providing life skills and confidence to help change their lives.
Please help us support this noble cause!
David, Nancy and Shayna Kobrinetz
