This program was developed to give participants the opportunity to learn the basic skills that will be required to be an instructor for the Normal Parks and Recreation Learn to Swim Program. Participants, ages 11-15, will learn the basic skills of the NPRD Learn to Swim Program, how they are taught, and how to be an effective Swim Instructor Assistant.
Everyone who completes the course will receive a T-shirt. Some students, who complete the class, will be selected to volunteer with the Normal Parks and Recreation Learn to Swim Program as an Instructor Assistant. The class and volunteer experiences help prepare participants for employment as a Swim Instructor.
