The Imagine staff boasts swim teachers with dynamic, international resumes filled with every level of aquatic expertise. With over 60 instructors representing 16 different nations, Team Imagine proudly resembles a United Nations of the swimming world. While backgrounds may vary, every instructor shares the same language of the water. In addition to our founders, the Imagine Swimming staff features Olympians, national champions, tri-athletes and surfers, artists and musicians, developmental psychologists and preschool teachers—In short, you will find no finer swimming instruction in NYC. Or anywhere at all…
Whether they are navigating a child's first experiences with the water or teaching them advanced stroke technique, Imagine instructors have the passion and patience to make each lesson a rewarding one. Each member of our staff undergoes extensive in-house training, each sharing in the Imagine vision and committing to the constant safety of each child. And of course, every instructor is certified as a Lifeguard and licensed in CPR.
Imagine Team FAQs:
What kind of training do your teachers have?
New additions to our staff go through extensive in-house training, both in and out of the water. This includes 40 hours of class assistance with current Imagine instructors; teacher clinics led by Imagine's senior staff; plus required comprehensive exam of the Imagine curriculum. Additionally, all staff are certified in First Aid/CPR and Lifeguarding through the American Red Cross. Of course, most of our staff has already devoted his or her life to swimming!
