I have been coaching youth sports for the past nine years. I have coached 13 girls soccer teams and 3 girls lacrosse teams (age range 5 to 14 years old). Coaching has been a great way for me to get to know many parents and children in my community and has been a great way to spend quality time with my three daughters. I have also developed some great friendships while coaching alongside other moms and dads in my town.
closest to swim instructor i love helping others learn to swim as it allows them to do new activities they wouldn't have been able to do before. teaching others to swim is a great opportunity because it allows you to see those you instruct grow and become more comfortable in the water... i'm sure this is similar for most other coaching/instructing positions.
