Finally on the other side.
After taking a swim instructor job at a swim club last summer, I was finally promoted to Assistant Swim Coach. Almost a surreal step for me as I’m now coaching kids who have been swimming longer than I have.
I swam year round at a swim club that kept their pool temp around 73-76. Go to coach a new swim team at another club and their swimming in a 90 degree pool. I get them into the other pool they have at the club (80F) and have them do practice their. Next day get emails from a chunk of the parents complaining that I made the swim team swim in the cold pool.
New swimmers in need of some motivation? Consider this, I started taking swim lessons at 16, now 4 years later I am still in swim lessons, but this time i’m teaching them.
Swimmers’ face when they get out for taper and everyone else has to stay in.
Got to swim with little kids over thanksgiving
