Tait says this time of the year, it's not as busy, but the Olympics are getting kids excited about the sport.

"There's a lot of buzz out there right now," he said. "Just this week our phones have been ringing off the hooks."

Tait said a lot of kids between the ages of 9 and 13 have expressed interest in swimming, many of
