Learn to Swim - Guide to Hire a Swimming Instructor

by Pool Builders on 01-28-2011 in Articles

Recently, I received a phone call from a potential student who enquired me on the swimming lessons which I conducted. They normally will ask the duration, fees of the lessons and time availability. However, this potential student asks me a question on why I have to choose you as my swim instructor. I am totally surprised by his question and it takes me a while to reply back. So what is the information you need to know before engaging a suitable swim coach?

Professional swim mentor will offer their students with knowledge and survival abilities required based on his vast experience. However, it does not mean the elderly the swim coach are, the more experienced he is. I do not believe in this theory. I believe that a swimming coach must always alter his ways of coaching methods to suit the needs of his students. The best way of looking for such a swimming coach is to go down to the swim pool to source for one or you may consult your friends who have any swim coach in mind. In my opinion, it is to your best interests to check the swimming instructor that suit you.

If you belong to those who have a hectic schedule, you may wish to source any swimming schools in the internet. You may check with the swimming coordinator for any recommendation of coach and also his experience of coaching. If it is visible, ask the swim coordinator of the swim instructor lessons' location. If you are confident of the recommendation, you may wish to take up the available session. You can also make a trip down to understand the swim coach teaching method and see if the teaching method suits you.

When you source for a suitable swim coach, ask them of the duration of each class. Different instructors have unique duration of lessons so it is beneficial for you to ask and ask for advice of the number of lessons necessary to master a swimming stroke. You do not wish to attend many lessons where you are unable to master the strokes. From the conversation, you can obtain an understanding how experienced the swim coach is and what will be the structure for your lessons.

Lastly, you need to take note of the course fees. Different swim school or coach has unique course fee. As a consumer, I do believe you may want to compare first before committing yourself to get yourself a good deal.

A good swim instructor will ensure that your swimming adventure is fun and enjoyable. It will be beneficial for you to source one that suit you. Most importantly, have fun while swimming.
