Some of the things you might be interested in helping with:

  • Demonstrate swimming skills and techniques to a lane of 3-5 swimmers with the assistance from the coaches.
  • Encourage and provide positive reinforcement to swimmers by providing corrections and feedback with regard to stroke development.
  • Help to keep swimmers organized and on task during practice by providing constant observation and feedback.Design new games and swimming exercises in order to keep swimmers engaged and motivated.
  • Supervise swimmers in the change room before and after practice by helping participants store their belongings, re-organize backpacks after swimming, and ensure swimmers get out of the change room in a timely fashion.​
