A good swimming coach or swimming teacher is someone that is being looked up by their pupils as a role model. Students will look upon to teacher for knowledge and guidance. Friendly Dolphin Swim School strongly believe that a teacher have to possess several key characteristics that will make him or her shine out.

These are some of the characteristics that will make them best teachers and determine their level of success in teaching.  Especially in pool, a swimming teacher will always have to foster discipline and making sure the students maintain it at all times.

A teacher is a means of travel like a car, the students or athletes is the traveller. It is their own journey, teachers are there only to help them get to where they are supposed to be. Good coaching will always place the interests of the swimmers first.
