Job Opportunity to teach Swim Lessons with Metro Aquatics

Emily Murray

Hello Metro Swimmers and Families,

I hope you are all having a great start to August! Metro Aquatics started a swim lessons program this summer and are expanding it in the fall, we are looking for instructors/coaches. Please pass this information along to anybody you think would be interested.

Swim Instructor/Coach Job
No swimming experience necessary. We are hiring to fill 12-18 positions. Priority will be given to those who apply by Thursday, August 5th.
Candidates of diverse identities and backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.   
 
The Program
We are different than traditional learn to swim programs because we incorporate games and play to teach swimmers skills that translate into swimming and self-rescue. Our program model is effective and responsive to the needs of less-traditional swim lesson participants because we address the barriers that have historically prevented BIPOC from generally participating in swimming. We love to hire coaches who resemble our participants—allowing participants to see themselves in their coaches and therefore are comfortable participating. We coach through fun and games and encourage swimmers to try the skills that are necessary to learn to swim because they are having fun.
 
Job Description
Metro Aquatics is searching for 12-18 new, enthusiastic swim lesson instructors and coaches who enjoy working with youth. We will host swim lessons at various locations around Tacoma. We will pay for and provide all successful applicants with lifeguarding certification and full training.

Compensation
Hourly Pay range of $17 to $20 dependent on experience.
