A Few of Our Instructors

Chloe M.Surrey BC
I have experience teaching children of all ages, as well as children with disabilities, lots of experience with adult swimmers, as well as experience with athletes. I am enthusiastic about my job and love when people have a goal that they aim to reach, whether it be just learning the basics, to training for races/marathons.
Priscilla O.Richmond, BC
I have been a lifeguard and swimming instructor for over 5 years. I am a positive and fun instructor who loves to see my students gain confidence in the water and improve their swimming skills. I design many exciting activities, drills and games to make every lesson fun and enjoyable while advocating water safety and providing constructive feedback toward each individual’s improvement.
Vladimir U.Langley, BC
I recently retired from my professional water polo and swimming career. I was a participant in the Olympic Games in London 2012, a winner of the Asian Games 2014, and Champion of Asia 2012. I have won many other international competitions in water polo and swimming. I am fluent in three languages: English, Russian and Ukrainian.
Jennifer S.Burnaby BC
I have been swimming my whole life and believe that being able to enjoy the water and be safe while swimming is an essential skill to have. I am passionate about teaching all ages to swim but especially love preschool and introductory levels. Come learn with me!
