Job Description

Join our Swimming Instructor Team!


Our story began in the summer of 1994 when our founder taught 50 kids to swim in his parents’ backyard pool where Making Waves Swim School was born! It wasn’t a sophisticated business however, it gave us the freedom to focus on what mattered most – our student’s progress in the pool, connecting with families and giving back to our community.

And, we’ll do whatever it takes to create an environment where everyone can do their best work and be their best selves.
