Elite Soccer PK


Elite Soccer PK was founded in 2007 by former Malaga CF player Christian Marin Diaz. At Elite Soccer PK, every player not only learns a European philosophy of the game, but the coaches also play a mentorship role, helping students understand the basics and fundamentals of soccer as well as encouraging every single participant to recognize the value of teamwork at every practice.

Soccer is not just a sport, but it is also a game. As a sport, soccer requires various individual technical skills that must be taught and developed. But as a game, soccer is based on teamwork and a system of tactics. That is why Elite Soccer PK's fun training programs offer a positive and safe environment. Offerings include private one-on-one training, soccer team practices, after-school programs, soccer clinics, birthday parties, and summer camps that are not only motivational and goal oriented but extremely effective at improving students' game and technical skills.

Lifeguard Training HQ


Lifeguard Training HQ has everything you need to make your life easier as you begin your career as a certified lifeguard. State-specific training requirements, potential employers, and job search assistance are just some of the helpful things you’ll find on the site.

Being a lifeguard is incredibly fulfilling. A lifeguard's presence helps people feel safer around a water facility. It also enables people to enjoy their time with protection against an emergency situation. A lifeguard must pass particular examinations and get special certification that qualifies them to protect against hazardous situations around a swimming pool. They also should have the ability to take care of a harmful circumstance by providing emergency treatment until assistance arrives.

Imagine Swimming


Imagine Swimming was founded in 2002 by Casey Barrett and Lars Merseburg, two former world-class swimmers. The school has grown to over 4,000 children each week in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Imagine Swimming believes that the important thing is the singer, not the song—meaning that the presentation of the lesson is everything. Imagine Swimming features highly developed teaching methods and rigorous training, however, it is the teachers—in the moment—who pass it along. This process is collaborative, rooted in play, and requires individual expression with every student, derived from the teachings of Reggio Emilia.

At Imagine, you will not find rigid levels and checklist teaching, but rather lessons that are constantly adapted and structured around the fluid development of every young swimmer. The school strives for 40 active minutes, with a teacher-to-child ratio never more than 1:4.

Please visit the website for more information and a full list of locations.
