The Future Of Swim
My name is Bob Timmer and I’m not just a YMCA Swim Lessons Instructor. I’m also an advocate for the updated YMCA swim lesson program which supports Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. This introduction will make sense when you go through the new YMCA Swim Lesson update that is being rolled out very soon.
This new program teaches basic swim skills and adds a water safety component that is the perfect recipe for a great swim lesson. The curriculum is laid out in a way that is easy to understand and makes it so that the instructor candidates will easily understand the material. It is also loaded with great resources for the instructor candidates. They will have no problem knowing what to teach in their daily lessons or how to keep their students engaged in swimming lessons.
I have never been a part of a pilot program before, but I am honored to be a part of this one. The Y has taught swimming lessons basically the same way for over 100 years. To know that I am part of the change is awesome. Thank you so much to all the people who worked so hard on this project. So many people will benefit from this program for years to come.
