Have you ever tried a swim coach job? Do you want to try it? Not only is being a swim coach a job with a lot of responsibility, it is a job that allows you and the swimmers you coach to have a great deal of fun while practicing to improve and excel.
The key to being a successful swim coach is to be an active swimmer. You cannot teach what you don't know. At least, you cannot teach it well unless you knew how to do it yourself at one time. Coaching swimmers will force you to learn your discipline through and through, making you a better and more well rounded swimmer yourself. It's like teaching anything; if you can explain to someone else how to do it, you'll learn it better yourself.
