Hi, my name is Jonathan Burgess and I love teaching swimming. Swimming has always been a hugely important factor in my life. I quickly advanced through swim lessons and onto a swim team where I spent 17 years swimming competitively, career highlights are multiple age group State Champion, National Swim Meet Qualifications, High school All American and a scholarship athlete for Indiana University.
I started teaching swim lessons in high school, where I began to develop my own teaching language, lesson plans, and drill progressions. I spent summers in college coaching for summer league teams and conducting swim lessons. In March of 2009 I began coaching for a local year round competitive swim team, coaching children ages 5-12.
