Our Staff

The single most important factor in your child’s swimming success is his/her teacher. We pride ourselves in our carefully chosen, trained, and directed teaching staff.

Directors Ed and Virginia Fedosky, both graduates of Indiana University with degrees in heath, physical education, & recreation. Each has over 50 years experience in teaching at all age levels.

Ed is professor emeritus of HPER at the University of Arkansas and is the former Razorback swim coach.

Virginia has taught kindergarten through junior high, and her Water Baby program has evolved from a perspective of teacher, mother, and grandmother.


Our daughters Susan Gabbard and Kim Brinson join us as teachers and supervisors. Both have many years of experience working with children of all ages.

Susan is a U of A graduate having attended Arkansas on a swimming scholarship.

Kim is a graduate of Southwest Texas State and also was a scholarship competitive swimmer.

We have an experienced teacher and a teacher’s aide in each of our four teaching lanes. Your child will have the individual attention that is very important for his/her success!
