Darcy Hudson (He/Him/His)
Local Instructor & Finswimming/Mermaiding Specialist
Darcy Hudson is a local swim instructor who has spent his career in aquatic, early childhood and adaptive education, teaching swimmers of all ages, from all walks of life. We selected Darcy for his emphasis on swim foundational skills that align with Michaela's original curriculum: muscle relaxation, nose bubbles and stroke efficiency for sound technique! He has a wealth of experience from The Swim Pro, including teaching their trauma-informed curriculum, and from his prior history as a trainer of swim instructors at Waterworks. We sought out the applicant most dedicated full time to the aquatics field, investing year-round in their aquatic professional development and specifically, in our beloved CHSRC swim community. Darcy has additional training in competition-level technique from the ASCA and plans to continue pursuing his education in the field of aquatics, both in and outside of I Am Me Mentors. Darcy's private lessons have received overwhelming satisfaction from members thus far, find details in our member testimonials!
"We have been taking lessons from Darcy for my 9 year old son this year. We were off to a great start with Michaela and were a bit nervous to have him start with a new instructor. After one class with Darcy, any concerns we had were gone. He utilizes the good training techniques that Michaela had used to train our son, and is extremely patient. Darcy also ensures that our son enjoys his classes, while helping our son rapidly and thoroughly improve his swimming capabilities."
