In addition to strong swimming skills, qualified applicants will have:
- teaching experience (preferably, but not necessarily swimming-related)- either experience working with children or experience working with persons with disabilities
Because S.W.A.M. is a non-certificate program, possession of valid certifications (such as NLS or WSI) is not a formal requirement to becoming an instructor (although it is a strong asset).
A fully certified lifeguard is always on duty during lessons.
Please provide your email address below if you are interested in becoming a volunteer starting Fall 2019. We will contact you when informal interviews will be held (likely August).
