Swimsational continues to keep abreast of the latest changes and trains their instructors
with their methods through regular H20 meetings. "You can teach an instructor
how to teach our methods, but what we cannot teach them is the LOVE for children", " they
either have that special caring or they don't." We select and teach each and every
instructor our methods but whether they "make the grade" and become a Swimsational
Instructor depends much on attitude as ability. Swimsational Staff must pass a
comprehensive drug screen, a written test, minimum of 50 hours in-water training and
continued education through video and or classroom hours, and maintain current CPR and
First Aid certificates. They are the most highly trained swim instructors in the state. All
instructors are required to have 40 hours classroom, supervised in water evaluation and
The kids are smiling, learning, warm and rewarded every day upon finishing their class. You
will see high fives being passed from instructor to students, hear the laughter and bell
ringing, watch the Swim M&M's being handed out regularly throughout classes...the fun never
sets at Swimsational!
