I saw my kids make more progress in their first lesson than they did in 3 or 4 lesson sets in the program they were enrolled in before.

Hear from a few of our instructors...

My daughter had her first lesson after a few very unsuccessful group lessons. She learned so much in the hour with Sarah. The smile on her face when we left was worth everything.

I was very skeptical at first. But in just one session, I was comfortable in the water, could float, and do a lot more!!

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!

What Clients Are Saying

I liked that my instructor Rebecca explains the reason behind things, and that there’s a venue and schedule that’s convenient for me. I am determined to practice and improve. It was a great start; We exceeded my expectations of what I could learn in an hour :)
