In our quest to build a Super Swim Instructor, we’re looking at each member of the Avengers and the qualities he or she would contribute to our life-saving hero.  This week –

Thor: What he brings to the team – Confidence. It takes a lot of confidence in yourself and your abilities to take on the Hulk and expect to come out on top (well, duh – Norse deity, here).  A good instructor not only has faith in himself, but instills that confidence in his swimmer.  A skittish toddler takes that first no-hands leap off the side because he believes his instructor when he says, “You can do it.  I’m here.  I’ve got you.”

Next week – The brains, the brawn, the Hulk!
