A Chat with Seaside SWIFT
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
SWIFT is an aquatics program that offers swim instruction, water safety training, and lifeguarding services. SWIFT teachers possess extensive aquatic backgrounds. SWIFT is a family-owned and operated business that provides a family-friendly, safe learning environment.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
A healthy respect for the water (both pool and open water) is understandable and advisable. Do not let fear prevent you from diving in. Everyone starts as a beginner, so simply take it one stroke at a time and allow yourself to embrace the joys the water can afford you.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Not every potential swimmer has the opportunity to enjoy individualized aquatic instruction. Quite frankly, many adolescents are never afforded the opportunity to learn to swim. Our instructors have reaped the benefits the aquatic world has to offer, and we view SWIFT as an opportunity to give back.
What do you love most about your job?
Nothing gives us greater pleasure than seeing the joy on our students’ faces when they become comfortable and confident in the water. We appreciate the moments when loved ones beam with pride as their little swimmers excel in the water!
