Our instructors and coaches come from a variety of different backgrounds and each have their own specialty. They are constantly learning and refining their teaching strategies to be able to adapt to each swimmer they work with. 

They create a customized plan that is designed to achieve the goals set out in the swim evaluation. Each instructor gets to know every swimmer and builds a relationship that works best for the teaching environment.
