Swimming coaches teach and train adults and children to swim. They can be employed by schools, swimming clubs, community centers, summer camps, or colleges. Swimming coaches help swimmers perfect their breathing techniques, swim speed, and may work with recreational swimmers or prepare professionals for meets. As a swim coach, your primary responsibilities are to teach swimming lessons to students of varying ages and skill levels. You may teach students how to swim as a team, oversee practice swim meets, provide specialized training for swimmers with disabilities, and demonstrate stroke techniques. In addition to teaching swim lessons, you may develop seasonal and yearly plans for various age groups, select appropriate drills, communicate each student’s progress, and identify talent for recruitment into swimming programs. Swim coaches typically work with youth programs, schools, and professional athletes. Some swim coaches also handle duties like processing payments and registrations.

To become a swim coach, you need at least a high school diploma or GED certificate, First Aid and CPR training, and a swimming coach certification. Some employers also request proof of citizenship and employment history as a lifeguard or other aquatic safety professional. However, an essential requirement is extensive experience in the swimming world. Organizations typically prefer coaches who have competitive experience and understand what it takes to succeed as a professional swimmer. Additional qualifications include strong interpersonal and communication skills, the ability to coach outdoors year-round, and familiarity with OSHA safety standards.

Our ideal candidate has prior experience as a lifeguard, experience with water sports and aquatics, and a personable, friendly demeanor.

A swim coach teaches people how to swim. Swim coaches may also be called swimming instructors. They have to stay up to date on first aid and pool safety training as well as meet qualifications set by government or other standards. The term coach is often used in describing a person who manages a swimming team rather than solely teaching lessons. For example, a high school swim coach works with a team in practices in the hopes of winning local and regional events against teams from other schools. The competitive races between different teams are typically called swim meets. Medals are usually awarded to winners, with a trophy often going to the school who wins the most swim meets in a season. A swim coach must ensure his or her team competes fairly in all meets and events. He or she also makes sure to handle required details, such as entering the meet and arranging transportation for students.

A college swim coach’s salary is typically much higher than his or her high school counterpart. For one thing, many college swim team coaches tend to be hired on a full-time basis, whereas a high school swimming coach may only work with students part-time after school, evenings and weekends. Both types of swim coaches usually appoint a team captain to help lead other members. While high school level coaches don’t often bring in professional swimmers to help the team improve its strokes and techniques, college swim coaches usually do. Since swim team members are also in school, many of whom are concerned with grades or other issues, trying to keep the swimming club together and organized is often a high pressure duty for coaches. Keeping the team competitive and able to win swim meets is another challenging part of a swim coach’s job.

Swimmers within the team may be at varied levels of competence and require different types of coaching. Using patience and tact is necessary for swim coaches, or they may find themselves face to face with angry parents. Leading swim team members by motivation and inspiration should be a main goal of swimming coaches. Coaches work on personal and team development. They plan practices, drills or swimming exercises and other team events. High school swim coaches select members through a series of tryouts by students hoping to make the team. College coaches choose talented recruits from senior high school swim teams.

Swimming coaches have the job of helping people to swim faster and better, and sometimes even teaching adults or children from scratch. Often clients will come to a coach with a range of objectives or requirements and the coach will help them to plan a programme of exercise, often including dietary and non-swimming fitness elements. The coach will then help the client to meet their objectives over a given period of time, providing motivation, encouragement and advice along the way.

Swimming coaches depend on having a wide enough and solid enough client base to provide a consistent income. They must also be able to take on new pupils as old ones drop out. Some coaches start as junior coaches or assistants and the first step beyond this is to become an independent coach with an independent coaching business. Beyond that it is possible to employ assistants or run or set up a swimming school or academy. After this, some coaches graduate to club coach level.
