Our lesson plans are designed and written by competitive swimming coach Sean Gillan.
Our Instructors are ex-competitive swimmers and have been personally trained on the program by Sean Gillan.
Our programs are based on the same step by step stroke building techniques that our competitive swimmers use in their workouts. Only our beginning swimmers use more tools to allow them to relax and fully concentrate on mastering the task at hand.
Our swimmers are never forced to perform, instead they are encouraged to develop at a pace within their own individual comfort zones. This allows the swimmer to develop their own motivation for continuing the process thus making the rewards of accomplishment far more personal and intense.
By allowing the swimmers to progress at their own pace we allow them to develop a sense of security and relaxation that is paramount in learning to swim efficiently.
Small group sizes – Coach to swimmer ratio always starts at 1 to 1 in all classes.
