People love working for SwimKids! Our employees are part of the family, and your children will consider them part of yours, too.
We take great pride in being a top workplace, attracting the best employees the world of swimming has to offer. Our turnover has remained low over two decades because we appreciate our people and have built a group of dedicated swim instructors that are teachers at heart. Helping children learn to swim with the SwimKids system and watching them succeed gives us immeasurable satisfaction.
SwimKids carefully selects instructors based on criteria proven important to the success of our company’s values. This includes not only their general interaction with children in the pool, but also a dedication to improving every child’s swimming technique, no matter their development level. We also continuously observe our instructors and offer ongoing training. Like the swimmers they teach, our instructors are always improving their technique.
Our diverse team comes from multiple backgrounds. Some were competitive swimmers, like our co-founder Dave Tonnesen. Others became SwimKids instructors after first being SwimKids students!
Our entire talented staff comes to work every day happy to help more children embrace the joy of swimming.
