Heather Jefts

Hi swimmers and future swimmers! My name is Heather, and I live to swim. I swam competitively in high school and college, and I’ve competed in triathlons and splash-n-dash duathlons. Through the years, I’ve taught and coached working with kids looking to make a team or higher-level team, as well as with adults wanting to be more successful in their races. About 10 years ago, I worked for Nitro while going back to school. I taught all ages, and I swam and assisted with Masters and Tri Prep classes.

After my new career left something to be desired, I took some time off to reevaluate. I was approached to teach a few kids in my neighborhood in 2014, and it mushroomed into a full-fledged business before the end of that summer. I introduced Tempo Swimming for the 2015 swim season, and I’ve been teaching people from 3 and older ever since. In 2016, Chris Kjeldsen of CK Swimming/Sailfish approached me, and we began  a partnership. He has a phenomenal swim team and summer league, but wanted to expand into ground-floor development. We started working together in 2017. With CK Swimming/Sailfish and Tempo Swimming, you’re getting the best of both worlds. I love teaching, and I love helping you and your kids develop a lifelong love of swimming.
