The Latest And Most Effective Teaching Methods

In June 2011, looking for a pool from which to teach, good luck was on her side when she met David Carlins, an Iron Man Triathlete and President of Magellan Development. Dave offered Kathy the chance to train masters swimmers and triathletes at the incredible Aqua Building. That was the beginning of her swim school, Swim with Kathy. She offers classes based on the latest and most effective teaching methods. Working with age group swimmers on their technique is one of her favorite areas of teaching.
