Kirsten K.


*UPDATE 2022* Unfortunately due to an increase in fees, I have needed to make two price changes. This is unprecedented, but will only apply to lessons booked after June 1st. I apologize for this sudden change! Hello my name is Kirsten and I have taught swimming lessons since 2006, and private lessons since 2008. I have worked at many municipalities over the years, as well as the YMCA. I am also certified to teach Bronze Medallion, Bronze Cross as well as WSI. I am a clinician who trains fellow staff on the intricacies of higher level strokes as well as considerations for adult learners. I have always had a love of teaching as well as swimming. My goal is to see growth and enjoyment throughout the lessons I teach! I have worked with many who have overcome fear and discomfort, and I find real pleasure in creating a safe and patient learning environment. Over the years, I have taught not only Red Cross but other lesson programs as well. This has given me the opportunity to use drills and approaches not found in Red Cross. I will use all my resources to create a personalized experience that aligns with your personal goals! Look forward to working with you! *I strongly suggest that students bring a pair of goggles and, if you have long hair, a swim cap to keep your hair out of your face*

Where I Teach

Nestled in the heart of Central Coquitlam, this local neighbourhood gem is an exceptionally warm pool featuring a spacious and modern interior. The shallow side has stairs which are perfect to help toddlers and children adjust to the water one step at a time. Because this pool ranges from 4 to 11 feet deep, adults can also learn everything here – from beginner floats to treading deep water.

Access instructions are provided after your booking is complete.
