An objective (literally) means “goal”. Since resumes have a goal too – which is to obtain a job – it is important to begin them with an objective. A goal-less resume is a failed resume. What exactly is it that is so important about a resume objective? The fact that it marks the beginning of your resume is sufficient. A resume cannot open blindly, slapping information into the face of the reader. A resume has to open and close properly – and the resume objective takes care of the former part.

What needs to be written in a swim coach resume objective is a debate that is probably never going to end. The best thing to do is to stick to the “introductory” rule, which says that an objective needs to state what position the candidate expects to fill, and how he qualifies to fill it. Since the objective cannot be longer than 3 sentences, it makes sense to just put in this information and then carry on writing the rest of the content in the resume. Once you are sure that you have all the information that you can use in a resume objective, you can organize it and present it in a profound manner.

And if you are looking for ways of articulating your resume objective, here are a few samples that you can refer to:
