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.Richmond BC

My name is Chloe Miller and I have been teaching swimming lessons for three years now and one year here at Propel! I am passionate, enthusiastic and driven and I like to take those aspects of myself into the work I do in the water with my clients. I am a first-year nursing student at UBCO and have my first aid, LSI, NLS, and WSI certifications.

Faith B.Mission BC

What sets me apart? I have been working in aquatics ever since I could and have taught many swimming lessons from parent and tots to upper-level Swim Kids. I am certified through Red Cross and am friendly and fun. But what really makes me different is that I am a part-time mermaid! I combine fitness, safety, and imagination together to create a truly unique experience!

Matthew W.Toronto, ON

So I have been working for the city of Toronto for about 3 year usually working in the spring and summer while attending school in the fall and winter. I love teaching children especially younger kids and getting them comfortable in the water. I love making the skill fun and exciting for kids so that they can develop a love for swimmer.

Noor T.Burlington, ON

I am a very friendly and fun teacher, but I do like to push the swimmer in class so that they can reach new achievements in each class. I like to celebrate all achievements and promote a positive style of learning. I am patient, understanding and caring. Most importantly, I just care that the swimmer is has fun, feels comfortable in the water, and learns new things.

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 :)
