We are both passionate about people and
about teaching, therefor have chosen to direct this passion into “water training”. Combined we have 25 years of experience in a variety of different water disciplines.
We have taught, and completed training in
South Africa, Mozambique, Indonesia and most recently extensive swim training in the United States. This with the intention of staying up to date with the best possible techniques and teaching methodologies.

The Starfish Swimming curriculum was developed by the internationally recognized & acclaimed Starfish Aquatics Institute. The streamlined, innovative and learner-focused curriculum uses an “ages and stages” format so that we can offer you swim lessons across the lifespan to a broad range of interests.
The StarBabies and StarTots Program introduces infants and toddlers to the water in a fun and loving environment. Parents or caregivers are taught the proper techniques to teach their infants and toddlers how to float, submerge, move in the water and rollover. Classes incorporate songs and activities to meet the swim skill benchmarks. Safety skill benchmarks are designed to educate the parents or caregivers.
The Swim School Program for pre-school, youth and adult students focus on meeting core competencies required to develop efficient swimming skills and age appropriate safety skills: trust and submersion;
body positions and air recovery (includes rollover to back for air recovery);
forward movement and direction change;
rotary movement (transitions from rollover to side position for air recovery);
functional strokes; and
age-appropriate safety skills.
The Stroke School Program for pre-school, youth and adult students develop effective technique and endurance for:
Freestyle, Backstroke, Butterfly & Breaststroke
