I just started a position as a Fitness Coordinator at a Senior facility. This aquatics instructor is very sweet, but we have recieved many complaints. She also is going through many physical issues and always tells us how she “needs to get in the water”. Her skill level is very low also and attendance in her class is low also. These are all reasons to pull her from the classes. We are looking at cutting back her schedule for Fall, but she will still have two time slots. Suggestions on how to handle this are welcome. I have some ideas, but hoping for clarification and other ideas!
Both ideas are great. Another direction you could try is to pull her from the class she is now teaching, work with her to improve the areas you are not comfortable with and then create a class that show cases her strengths, create interest with your members and see if she can build the class from there. If this does not work, then I would consider letting her go.
