USMS is offering an Adult Learn to Swim (ALTS) Instructor Certification Program in New Haven on Saturday, March 11, 2017. This program is great for anyone in interested in teaching adults how to swim, especially aquatics coordinators, instructors and staff that offer or would like to offer adult learn to swim programs. USMS membership is required along with the ability to perform American Red Cross’ Five Skills of Water Competency: step/jump into water over your head, return to the surface and float or tread water for one minute, turn in a full circle (to find an exit), swim 25 yards, and exit the pool. The program costs $300 and includes 5 hours of classroom instruction, materials, lunch, and 2 hours of in pool instruction.
The class is being taught by Bill Meier, a long time USMS swimmer and coach, who helped create the ALTS Instructor Program. Bill is as enthusiastic in his teaching (he may break out into song and dance) as he is knowledgeable.
