This position supports the work of the Y, a leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Swim Instructors lead, instruct and motivate students in assigned swimming classes. S/He provides a safe, friendly and welcoming environment for participants.
Swimming is a basic life skill. We are looking for people who take the knowledge and safety of swimming seriously, but can also create a fun environment for the kids. At the YMCA we deliver high quality swim lessons to our members and nonmembers. That being said, we require a certification for teaching swim lessons. The YMCA will take care of all of your training and even pay you to get certified. The certification process is easy, however you are required to be able to preform at least 4 of the 6 swimming strokes.
Group lesson hours:
Thursday: 9-11am and 6-8pm
