Tina has been teaching all levels of swimming for over 20 years. Her certifications include CPR PRO, First Aid, EAD and Oxygen. She was a Starfish Lifeguard Instructor, Swim Instructor and Trainer. In addition, Tina was a Level One competition swim coach for the Sarasota Sharks. She has also worked with preschoolers, been a personal trainer, and basketball official and coach.
As Aquatics Coordinator for the YMCA and Aquatic Director for Bath & Racquet Athletic Club, Tina has taught both children and adults to swim, some with extreme fears. For over five years she’s taught Aqua Aerobics and Hydroryder (biking in the water).
Tina’s goal is to make everyone comfortable in and around the water.
“Coach Tina has a natural ability to share her love of the water with kids of all ages. Her hands on (body in the water) approach ensures that every lesson is about water enjoyment and safety as much as it is structured teaching.
In fact, she has brought back to my boy the love of the water with her low pressure, high fun factor way.” – CA Hersom, Siesta Key
“Coach Tina is a talented instructor who takes the time to get to know her students and does fabulous job of providing positive feedback on the strengths of the swimmer while providing guidance on improving weakness in a stroke.” – Brandi
