The comparison from Day 1 to Day 12 displays how many water-safety swim skills participants were able to independently perform, to a predetermined degree of mastery, after being taught by the JAAR Team for 1 lesson versus after being taught by the JAAR Team for 12 lessons.
It is important to note that aside from one participant, no one arrived with the ability to independently perform any skills within JAAR Program's curriculum.
