Instructor: Gus Warnholtz

I am passionate about teaching children and

adults how to swim, as I believe it is an

essential skill in life. Teaching kids (and adults)

to be safe in and around water is my priority.

Second is for them to master moving and

having fun in the water with confidence,

focusing on improving their water skills and

stamina. Third is to introduce them to

Mastering swimming strokes and swimming

competition. I am a retired aerospace engineer

who has coached swimmers and triathletes for

more than 20 years. I was also a PE teacher in

an elementary school, teaching swimming for two years. I swam competitively in High School and College and am still actively training for triathlon and open water competitions.

I enjoy working with kids enormously and base my instruction on fostering a strong trust link, mutual respect, and fun. I have been married for 37 years and I am currently teaching my grandkids how to swim!
