Hi, my name is Matthew Maurer. I have been a swim instructor at the Flagstaff Athletic Club since the summer of 2006. I moved to Flagstaff In 2002 to attend Northern Arizona University and graduated with a degree in Microbiology. Swimming has always been a large part of my life and I think it is an important skill for everyone to have. I swam competitively through high school and enjoy many activities that include the water, such as: snorkeling, scuba diving, rafting, and backpacking to water destinations. Other activities I enjoy include: snowboarding, cross country skiing, tennis, racquetball, volleyball, and mountain biking. Along with swim lessons I am also an instructor for CPR and lifeguarding. I currently work for the Coconino County Health Department and fit swim lessons in around my work schedule. Hope to see you in the pool!
