Bower Hill Swim Club News
Carly Beer Joins Bower Hill Staff
Bower Hill Swim Club is pleased to introduce Carly Beer. She is a Mt. Lebanon resident of 5 years, and loves to teach all levels of swimming. She has been an American Red Cross certified Water Safety Instructor (WSI) for over 15 years, and a Certified Lifeguard for almost 20 years. Carly came to Pittsburgh a few years ago from Portsmouth, VA while serving on Active Duty in the U.S. Coast Guard (total active time of 10.5 years). She is joined by her husband Justin, and two children Reagan (11) and Zachary (10).
Her favorite class to teach is a Parent & Child swim lesson where she teaches the parents how to safely start to teach their own children how to swim and have fun in the water, even to parents who are non-swimmers themselves. Carly has a very unique style of teaching which incorporates a very playful imagination to keep swimming extra fun, an encouraging motivational drive to help students push themselves further, and a caring nature that makes both the teacher and students excited to come back next time.
Carly will be coordinating and teaching our swim clinics and parent/child classes. We hope that you will come join us in the fun this year at Bower Hill Pool and meet Ms. Carly!
