This blog will feature heartfelt quotes from several of our swim teachers across the nation as they share why they love their swim students as well as some of their favorite memories while teaching swim.

What is your favorite part about teaching your students how to swim?

“I love being able to push my swim team prep kids to try their absolute hardest and get faster each week.” – Mr. Owen, Springfield MO

“I enjoy seeing people improve, from not knowing something, to being able to see them accomplish their goals through learning!” – Mr. Peter, Omaha NE

“My favorite part of being a swim teacher is seeing people not only achieve but exceed their goals. Whether it’s overcoming fear or perfecting their stroke techniques, the pride and confidence they feel is truly life-changing; for them and me.” – Miss Lisa, Memphis TN

Why do you look forward to teaching swim lessons?

“I love the bonds that I create with the children and the memories that are made.” – Mr. Peyton, Springfield MO

“I look forward to that moment when I can physically see swim students surprise themselves when they become independent on a new swim skill. I love the pure joy and proudness on their faces!” – Miss Lauryn, Omaha NE

“I get to see all the children smile and develop a passion for the water.” – Mr. Colby, Springfield MO


What is your best memory from teaching kids to swim at Diventures?

“My best memory of teaching kids to swim was teaching two sisters, who started absolutely terrified of the water but grew into confident swimmers.” – Miss Shyanne, Springfield MO

“My favorite memory from teaching swim lessons is when I had a student who started lessons at age three. This student cried for the first two months of lessons but we stayed positive, and his mom trusted me. In month three, something kicked in and he started to enjoy the water! Fast forward five years later and he is now eight. At the end of this summer, his mom reached out to let me know he finished top five for his age group in every event he entered.” – Mr. Nathan, Sun Prairie WI
