About this pro

Splash Jax has taught lessons in San Marco for five years.  My wife and I have taught swimming for over 25 years each.  We provide a happy, friendly atmosphere and teach babies, toddlers, children and adults the love of swimming.

We enjoy the confidence that each person gains once they learn how to swim.  This confidence grows even more, once you become a strong swimmer.  Our ultimate goal is that you love swimming and enjoy it as a life long activity.  We love to share our joy of swimming.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We get to know them and their swimming experience by asking questions of the swimmer and the parents.  We place them with the best instructor based on these answers.  We always try to start a little below their level to build comfort and confidence.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been teaching swimming for over 30 years.  I am a certified level 4 coach with the American Swimming Coaches Association.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Yes.  This information is on our website at Splashjax.com.  The most basic information for group lessons is $62 a month for one lesson each week.  Private lessons are $40 per lesson, with a minimum of 4 lessons.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching as a young child on my summer league swim team.  This led to getting my first job teaching lessons as a 15 year old.  I became a swim coach with some very highly regarding swimming programs.  I also started a swim school in Nashville, TN.  I started Splash Jax upon returning to Jacksonville in 2012.


What types of students have you worked with?

Infants to 90 year old swimmers.  Beginning level swimmers to Olympic Gold Medalists.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

In 2008, I coached a paralympic swimmer to a Gold Medal and a world record.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Go with a person that you can trust and feel comfortable with.  Knowledge is important, but a level of comfort will be more important.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Each person needs to know what their goals are.  Decide what you want to accomplish and communicate that to your instructor.
