Aqua Swim School only employs teachers who have a competitive swimming background.

We believe children should be taught the correct technique from the start, and good technique is re-affirmed all the way through the school up to the highest level.

The only way to be a good teacher is to be able to do it yourself, and give your experience and knowledge to the students.
