Andi

I have been been a youth sports teacher since I was a teenager and a swim instructor for more than three decades. My two daughters were varsity swimmers, with one playing collegiate water polo, and now that they’re grown I enjoy passing on water skills to new generations.
 
I enjoy teaching all ages and skill levels and my biggest joys in teaching are seeing those who are afraid of the water or can’t swim overcome their fears and feel safe while swimming. I also take great enjoyment in fine tuning swimming skills for those who want to compete. Flip turns and starts are so much fun!

Laurie

As a seasoned high school science teacher and coach, I have taught swimmers of all ages (2 months to 92 years) for decades, coached 5-8 year olds for Worthington USA Swim Team, and also worked with every level of triathlete. Having passions in education and the science of athletics has guided me to earn an undergrad degree in Biology and Chemistry and a Masters degree in Education. Not only do I love teaching swimming, I understand the physics, psychology, and physiology involved in learning how to swim and swimming well!

 

I’m happy to work with every level – I believe I’m best with level 4,5,on up.
But I have plenty of experience and success with total beginners (young and old), babies and toddlers, fearful swimmers, children with disabilities (experiences with Down’s Syndrome and autism) and adults – and I’m happy to teach all level & age swimmers!

Racheal

I am a true mermaid and would spend all day in the pool if I could! I have found my true passion in life by teaching others how to swim. Nothing makes me happier! I am good with all ages and abilities as I feel there is nothing more important than knowing how to swim. I genuinely enjoy teaching the little ones and the true beginners! I look forward to seeing you on the pool deck!
