What we offer

Beginner Swimmer Course

For absolute beginners, we will teach you to float, breathe & kick properly. Secondly, you will learn the fundamentals of the freestyle stroke and putting it together with a kick board or pull buoy and then without.

Intermediate Swimmer Course

We can help you swim faster and more efficiently. This level focuses on stroke correction with a range of technique targeted drills. Stroke efficiency will build and allow the swimmer to swim slowly at low intensity.

Group Lessons

If you are looking for a casual group swimming lesson with no more than 4 other swimmers, simply book online and pay as you go. Our coaches can cater the lesson according to the ability of the group.
