Shorten Your Learning Curve.

Take away a skill that will save your life as well as others.

Progressing slow but steady.

We understand that students usually have a quick win mentality when it comes to swimming. They would look for quick wins and learn it fast mentality.

However swimming is skill that will not receive result unless you put in consistent effort into it. We break down the skills into five categories of progression in a hierarchical fashion making sure the students progress slowly from the simple exercise to more complex one. Fundamentals have to be on a solid ground before advancing on the next few stages.

Our swimming courses move in a hierarchical fashion to ensure:

  • Slow and steady progress but effective results
  • Innovative teaching methods
  • All inclusive swimming program
