Lizzotte, Student-Athletes Talk to Bangor Metro About Swimming Lessons

Bangor Metro interviewed Susan Lizzotte, head coach of the University of Maine’s swimming and diving teams, and student-athletes Lauren Dwyer and Cody Lachance about the swimming lessons the team offers to local children. Lizzotte, who oversees the program offered to children who are 4 to 13 years old, said each collegiate instructor is assigned to a small group of students, and sometimes there is one teacher per student. Dwyer, a captain on the UMaine swim team and instructor in the program, said she developed her swimming skills as a student in the swim school and teaching the classes is like coming “full circle.”
