Swim Instructor


Thank you for your interest in becoming a Swim Instructor with Academy Swim Club! 

This is most definitely not like your average job.  Here you will be working with kids hands-on, in a fun, playful setting, teaching them a skill that they will be able to carry with them throughout their entire lives.  You will be DIRECTLY impacting your students lives in such a positive way. You will be their role-models, friends, teachers and swim buddies. But, most importantly, you will be teaching them a LIFE SAVING skill.  With drowning being the #1 cause of accidental death in children under the age of 5, you will most likely be saving a child’s life. So, come experience the joys and benefits of working with students of all ages at Academy Swim Club!
