Are you interested in a great summer job or challenging career as a professional swim instructor? Through videos, group discussion, and hands-on practice, you’ll develop an understanding of how to use the course materials, how to conduct training sessions and how to evaluate participant progress.

The purpose of the American Red Cross Swimming and Water Safety program is two-fold: to teach people how to be safe in, on and around water; and to teach people of all ages and varying abilities how to swim. Using a logical progression, the program covers the knowledge
and skills needed for aquatic skill development, which, in turn, leads to safer and better swimmers.

  • Front Crawl – 25 yards

  • Breaststroke – 25 yards
