Being proficient in any sport requires dedicated practice and learning, but you also need top coaching. The Jewish Alliance’s Dwares JCC is blessed to have legacy swim instructors Doug Immel, Aquatics Director (pictured above), and Ian Muir, Master Coach, spearheading the TigerSharks Swim Academy. They both received world-class instruction and together have a combined 100 years of swim coaching experience (including future Olympic athletes) to offer to people right here on the East Side!
This unique program teaches kids and adults of all ages the fundamentals of swimming in a tiered level, and when you graduate, you are completely confident, proficient, and safe in the water. It’s a year-round program with multiple classes available six days a week. Doug explains, “There’s 22 hours a week dedicated to TigerSharks Swim Academy, so there’s a time slot for everybody.” Instruction can start as early as 3 months, and then children ages 5-18 who graduate to the top level are eligible to continue on to the TigerSharks Swim Team, which competes all over the state and beyond. The entire instruction system is based on working with people at their level, from beginner to expert. Doug, Ian, and their entire swim instructing crew are ready to help you or your child reach that next level of swimming ability. Contact the JCC today for more information. You don’t need to be Jewish or a JCC member to enroll.
