From Athlete to Coach

Swimming has always been a passion for me. I started swimming competitively when I was 5 years old. Growing up, I was raised by a single mom and she was the best mom she could be but did have to work a lot. Swimming became my sanctuary. Practice was every night and almost every weekend there was a swim meet. It became more than just my sport; it became my life. I was never the fastest swimmer on the team, nor did I go to state every year like most of my friends. But, I showed up and did what I could.

Passing it On: Learning Confidence in the Lap Lane

Ever since I was little, I have had two left feet. During middle school my legs grew faster than my brain knew what to do with them! I would trip over my own toes, lose my balance, and was all around a clumsy kid. While stumbling in tennis practice and never quite getting the footwork necessary for a lay-up in basketball, swimming became my refuge. The weightlessness of being in the water and the overall lack of ever having to try catching a ball made the pool my safe haven. My self-esteem increased and I felt more powerful and confident than ever before at the tender age of 12.

Excitement grows as we count down to our swim lesson. Suits, caps and goggles on, it’s almost go time! Now we’re ready, moving out to the pool area, trying hard not to run, putting towels down in the dry zone and moving fast to get to our smiling teacher and the warm water.

Swimtastic Instructor Stories: TWINS!?

Posted on Aug 26, 2017 7:20:00 AM by Jocelyne Gonzalez in Swimming lessons, in Twins, in What to Expect from Twins, in Swimtastic, in Teaching Swim Lessons, in children learning

I was about a year into working at Swimtastic when on my schedule “the twins” appeared. They were 4 years old and I knew right off the bat that they LOVED the water (especially staying underwater and just doing their own thing) and had a lot of energy! I was excited to take them under my wings and find a way to channel all their energy into learning the right techniques.

What My Students Have Taught Me

What My Students Have Taught Me

I grew up through Swimtastic Swim School. As a kid, I went there for swimming lessons. That’s right. I used to be the little girl on the steps splashing her teacher and thinking she could swim, when in reality, she would only sink. I used to be the kid who was so excited to go down the slide she could hardly contain herself. Now, years later, I’m still at Swimtastic, but I hold a different role. I’m no longer that little girl smiling on the steps. I still have the smile, I’m just no longer sitting on the steps. I’m the one teaching this time. Instead of being instructed, I’m the one doing the instructing. And, although I’m the teacher, I learn a lot from my students as well. Throughout my time at Swimtastic I’ve learned the value of patience, the power of perseverance and the importance of positivity among so many other things.
