    Slava is very professional. My 11 year old son is a competitive swimmer who not only loves his coaching but has improved significantly under Slava’s guidance.

    My kid is a competitive swimmer and just in two lessons Coach Slavik was able to spot her opportunities. looking forward to more sessions!


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

My session plan always begins with an analysis of swimmer's skills and based on his or her abilities I create an individual training plan. After that a practice plan goes as follows: 

• Observe young swimmer's potential and fulfill it 

• Research more efficient ways to coach young swimmers and what swimming drills are the most effective 

• Motivate the swimmers who express reason to give up during practice 

• Communicate with parents about their child's swimming and practice schedules 

• Review and evaluate swimmers level of executing acceptable stroke technique

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

Throughout my coaching career, I've had a chance to be an Assistant Coach at the University of Bridgeport Purple Knights Swimming Team. It has been a great experience to coach an NCAA Division II national level swimmers that were winning awards at national competitions. Additionally, I used to coach a Park City Wolfpack swimming club swimmers of different age groups. Besides that, I was running a swimming program in the country where I came from and any kind of individual could potentially become one of my swimmers. Whether it was a three years old kid or 60 years old man.

Today I am a second level USA swimming coach. Apparently, I went through CPR/AED/FirstAid, Lifeguarding, Safety training and everything else what required me to earn a membership.
