Brooke continued her success at the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, winning TWO gold medals.  Now Brooke is pursuing her passion to teach children how to swim and be water safe. The BBSA course is designed to allow the student, parent and instructor to be involved in the learn-to-swim progress. It is a progression based program using the BBSA swim book for every child in the program.
