Become an Instructor

We are currently looking for volunteer instructors in Winnipeg, Brandon, Steinbach and Dauphin.

SwimAbility instructors come from diverse backgrounds but all are dedicated student volunteers. Although our typical instructor recruitment periods are August-September and December-January, we are always looking for new instructors! Please note that if you apply outside of the aforementioned recruitment periods, our response may be slower than usual.

In addition to strong swimming skills, qualified applicants will have:

  • Teaching experience (preferably, but not necessarily, swimming-related)
  • Experience working with children
  • Experience working with persons with disabilities

Because SwimAbility is a non-certificate program, possession of valid certifications (such as NLS or WSI) is not a formal requirement to becoming an instructor (although it is a strong asset). A fully certified lifeguard is always on duty during lessons.

Meet the above listed qualifications and want to volunteer with Manitoba SwimAbility? Please fill out the form below:
