The benefit of this organization is they offer the same training and certifications materials as Olympic, high school, collegiate and USA Swimming Coaches. The approach is vastly different than that of the Red Cross with the additional benefit of the knowledge and wisdom passed down from successful coaches who progress children from basic LEARN-TO-SWIM participants to dedicated athletes. Ms. Jane learned to teach swimming lessons through the Swim America program and has Coached hundreds of kids to successful progress through these stages. In addition to Swim America rubric, Ms. Jane, as a mother and parent has developed her own special approaches that she trains her employees.
