Our Philosophy

no expectations. no limitations.

Learning to swim can be a difficult and confronting thing for some, others pick it up easily. I believe with the correct guidance everyone can be the best they can be.

We teach using a structured format with as little transition as possible so that moving from one level to another when ready is a smooth transition. Encouraging our swimmers to learn step by step and developing strong skills on the way helps to ensure a good technique and the foundation to becoming a good swimmer.

Our format is based on repetition so that the skills that are taught form the very beginning levels become second nature. Everyone will develop skill at their own pace, sometimes swimmers plateau for a while, which is normal, and can help build a stronger foundation of the skills that they are developing.

Our passion is for all swimmer to feel good about any achievement they make no matter how big or small as they are all important. People thrive in a positive, happy, nurturing environment and that’s something I can proudly say we offer.

Our pool

no expectations. no limitations.

We teach in an Outdoor solar-heated 18 meter pool with a great amount of shade. The pool temperature ranges between 29 -34 degrees and is a very calm environment for swimmers to learn in.
