Having been involved in the swimming world since the age of 12, my passion for the sport is endless. My main goal is to emphasize the importance of safety and to promote muscle memory, discipline, and the proper technique to prevent injury. I have been a swim team coach on the South Snohomish County Dolphins swim team for 3 years. I was also a competitive swimmer on the Seattle University swim team where I engaged in community work and teaching private lessons to children of many ages.

 Swimming has been a big part of my life ever since I was a kid. I am swimming competitively for my high schools varsity team and I hope to continue my swimming throughout college. I believe it's very important for kids to learn how to feel comfortable in the water but also how to be safe. I enjoy working with children all ages and all abilities.

With a love for water and swimming since the young age, I have mastered the water.  I help take both swim & dive teams to state competing for both as a swimmer & diver,  I went on to become a lifeguard that lead to becoming a swim instructor, swim team coach & freediving, I pushed myself with distance swimming across Lake Washington from Kirkland to Seattle followed by two triathlons.  I have always loved the water and takes great joy in helping others find that same love.

Joe Dederick 

I have been teaching swim for 8 years. What I love most about teaching swim is watching my students progress and seeing them enjoy being in the water. That's why I teach my students not only technique but to really love and appreciate swimming. I also teach them how to be safe and independent in the water and, most importantly, challenge them so they can gain confidence both in and out of the water.
I'm also fluent in Japanese and have experience working with kids who are on the spectrum.

Growing up on an island swimming was second nature. I have had the opportunity to swim competitively all four years of high school.
Throughout college, I taught swim lessons to all age ranges from 5 months old babies to adults. I also have coached the swim team in Lincoln, NE. During my summers off of college, I lifeguarded at several lakes. I love teaching swim lessons because swimming is such an essential tool in life. Making everyone feel comfortable and safe in the water.

I believe swimming is the best sport which gives the whole body exercise with minimum injury and is suited for all age groups. To me, swimming is a life skill that every individual should acquire and enjoy. I  am super excited to share my knowledge and techniques to my clients. 
In my spare time, I love to travel, bake and spend quality time with my family outdoors.

I have been teaching swim lessons for close to a decade.  My top priorities are for my students to learn water safety and to enjoy swimming.  When I am not in the pool, I am either in the classroom as a 5th-grade teacher or at the dog park with my dogs.

Swimming is a life long activity that everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy. I first entered the water at a very young age having grown up very near a pool and the lake. It is still a difficult chore to get me out. I swam many years competitively starting at the age of 6. I have a real passion for teaching and coaching, working with all ages and levels of ability. My priority and goal are to ensure water safety and improve their techniques with lots of fun mixed in.
