Fall of 2015, Vince was given a great opportunity to join the Gerry Clubhouse Tiburones swimming team. As a beginner, Vince was not comfortable swimming in deep water, He was not as confident because he was not as fast as the other kids. Vince started to reconsider his decision, not sure if joining the team was a good idea. Over time, As Vince started to learn the techniques of becoming a great swimmer.
