Instructor Training Program
We need our participants to help! This upcoming spring session we are incorporating a free hands-on training for our Learn to Swim Instructors. These training sessions will be formattedto teach specfic swim skills to age groups as well as further develop our swim instructors during real-life situations.
Our training is scheduled for March 17th-19th from 5:00pm-8:00pm. Participants will receive priority registration for our Spring 2 session. Limited training sessions are scheduled and will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Registration will be online through our shoprecwell.umn.edu website and we will not accept registration via phone or email. Participants only need to sign up for one training session to receive priority registration for the Spring 1 session. Once training participants are confirmed further information on priority registration will be sent out.
Participants in our training session will attend a 35-minute swim lesson. After the lesson, participants will have 15 minutes to discuss and review the given lesson and provide any feedback to the instructor. For further information please contact us at email@example.com.
