Arthur Soybel; originally from Kiev, Ukraine, began taking swimming lessons at the age of six. A perfectionist by nature, Arthur felt very comfortable in the water and knew right away that swimming was a sport for him. Through hard work and dedication, Arthur rapidly became a top ranking swimmer and earned a spot on the specialized swim team 'SPARTAK', and later the Ukrainian national team. Arthur was a long distance swimmer and a record holder in 800m freestyle and 200m butterfly. In early 90s, Arthur and his family moved to the United States. He began teaching swimming to his family and friends, the process eventually expended into New York Swim School; a company Arthur started after college. Throughout the years Arthur coached many swimmers and professional athletes, and developed a unique and proven effective method of teaching swimming, which tailors to an individual swimmer and streamlines the learning process. Today Arthur enjoys coaching for STAC, which he finds to be a very rewarding and fulfilling experience.
