Life as a Pedalheads

“I chose to become a Pedalheads swim instructor because of how rewarding it is! It is such an inclusive environment and I've built strong connections with the staff and students by seeing them every week. Our team is so tight-knit and it makes me excited to come into work each week. Bonus: the pools are designed to make teaching lessons easy and fun.”

“I became a swim instructor because I had a really great instructor at some point. I motivate my students by figuring out their interests and sense of humour. Building connections and trust is an important part of being a leader when I'm teaching.”

Meet Olivia

Life as a Pedalheads
swim instructor

“The environment at the pools is electric! On a typical day, I am mentoring new instructors, helping new or tentative swimmers into the pool, and fine-tuning skills for our more experienced swimmers. I am constantly thinking about new ways to create fun, confidence—building, and skill—focused lessons.”
