    As a child I loved sports. Not just swimming, but every sport. As a result, I ended up pursuing my education in athletics. Teaching was something I enjoyed quite a bit and I soon found out that I could combine my two passions. It all just came together and just like that… I became a swimming instructor. In my 15 years of experience, I have taught people of all ages including babies. I have learned and achieved a lot throughout the years and am very excited to put that knowledge to use now in Diemen. I would love to help you to reach your swim goals.

  • Urska AKA Nemo

    I made my first baby steps on the side of a local swimming pool, so it all began rather soon. They dubbed me “Nemo” as the fish in the movie Finding Nemo, which became my nickname; also because I was always swimming with orange swim caps on at the first club I joined. I guess my admiration for the Netherlands was shown at an early stage. Mid-way during my own professional swimming career, my coaching career has started.

    Being able to swim is one of the greatest super powers there is, and in time and dedication everyone can obtain it. Teaching someone how to swim is a challenge, but is very much rewarding for both parties.


    "Relax, take a deep breath and just keep swimming."


"In the beginning it felt weird; I thought I would be the only adult who don’t know swimming and have to train with kids. But it was fun once I was in pool with so many beginners. Now, I love the lessons absolutely. Learnt lots of basics and tips & tricks. I am able to swim now all of four strokes. Still needs lot of practice for freestyle though. I can also dive and swim a bit underwater. "
