The Program Director conducts ALL initial coach training.  Site Supervisors are not allowed to conduct initial coach training, though they may conduct on-going training.  This is to ensure that everyone who goes to work as a Swim America coach receives the same quality initial introduction to the program.  The Program Director is responsible for training and coaching the Swim America Coach by making sure that you have constant support and supervision.  The Program Director decides when a student has surpassed the station goals.


Swim America training takes 8 hours.  The initial 4 hours of training are done in a face to face setting with the Program Director.  The 4 additional hours are done by the student, on their own time with the materials in the Swim America Coaches Manual. 


When a Swim America coach has completed and passed (85%) the Swim America Coaches Test their Program Director will present them with a Swim America Red Teaching Card from the National Swim America Program certifying them as a Swim America Coach.  You are to report to work 15-20 minutes before the start of lessons, get your assignment from the Program Director.  The Program Director will open the lesson program, and open each class session.  At the end of the day the Program Director will close both the class session, and finally the day’s set of lessons.


A Swim America Coach is to be a role model for the student, knowledgeable, organized, flexible, and empathetic.  A Swim America Coach has a sense of humor, a sense of fairness, the understanding of discipline and its relationship to learning, enthusiasm and maturity.
