Swimming lessons Den Haag

Your Personal Swim Coach: Den Haag offers several opportunities for those who want to learn how to swim. Whether you would like to join a private elite class, a small group session, an advance diploma training, or a sports swimming class, there are many options throughout the week!

On Tuesday evenings, beginning swimmers are welcome in the warm, shallow water of the Waterthor pool. The lessons are guided by our certified coaches in either private elite lessons (maximum of 2 swimmers per instructor) or small groups (maximum of 5 swimmers per instructor). As soon as you achieve certain skills, you can move on to more advanced lessons in the deep-water pool in Overbosch on Sunday afternoons or Monday evenings.

Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings, we offer private elite lessons at the Carlton Beach Hotel pool. On Tuesday evenings, we also offer more intensive small group lessons with Mandy in the Crowne Plaza pool. These lessons have a maximum of 4 students.

  • Christina Founder and Co-Owner

    Thanks to an interesting and fortunate turn in my career, I ended up owning a swim school one day while I am originally an agronomist.

    After living in Kenya for two years, I came back to The Hague and decided to get off the corporate track for a while and continued doing what I really enjoyed while travelling through Africa; sharing my passion for exercising in the water and helping others to learn how to swim.


    "It humbles me that our students allow us to work with them. They are our heroes! Olympic swimmers are so overrated ;)"

  • Mandy Co-Owner

    Hi everyone! I started as an assistant teacher more than 10 years ago, while collecting all kinds of swimming diplomas meanwhile. This is where I found my passion for teaching children of every age range so I had got my qualification to become a teacher myself.

    Later on I gained a Master’s Degree in Pedagogical Science. This study is all about the progress of parenting and educating while interacting with the (disturbed) development of children and adolescents in their own environment.


    "I love to teach swimming skills to children and adults so much because, it gives these people more confidence. In and outside the pool!"

  • Fahrad

    As far as I can remember I have always enjoyed being in the pool or sea. I am born and raised in Tehran,Iran. I gained my life guard diploma when I was 19 years old and during my university studies in Iran I also worked as a pool life guard. At the age 22 I received my coaching licence. I moved to Holland  to continue my studies at TU Delft university and  joined the swimming team (DSZ Wave). During my time as a student l participated in swimming competition, which I continue to do so today.
    I am passionate about helping other swimmers better themselves. for instance when I am at the pool swimming I don’t hesitate to offer up my knowledge to a swimmer who struggles with some techniques. After all these years of experiences I can help adults overcome the fear.


    "By dividing the complex swimming stroke into smaller steps, I help my students with accomplishing their swimming goals."

  • Myrthe

    As far back as I can remember, swimming has always been a part of my life. My grandma and aunt taught me how to swim. Teaching others how to swim, just runs in our family, I guess. In my earlier years, I used to be a competitive swimmer. I even participated in the Dutch National Championships. Besides being a swimming coach, I am also a current bachelor student of human movement technology.


    "The fun part of teaching others how to swim is sharing the joy for water. Our students go home satisfied and with a happy face. That just boosts my energy."

  • Sharon

    From the moment I started swimming, I had loved it. Mainly because it is like you are somewhere else. I appear to have talent for it too, so I joined some competitive swimming teams for a while. I think it is safe to say that swimming is my nature.
    I lived in Nigeria for some years, that is where my mom (also a teacher) helped out many locals who did not know how to float nor swim. Now I am working with scared adults myself. I put them at ease by telling them how I feel in the water. By giving them a different view, they get their minds off their fear.


    "Water puts me at ease because when I swim or go under water, all the noise around me fades away. I love to share this with my students."


"Deep heart-felt thanks for everything. You have brought me from not being able to float to swimming, diving, floating….I am sure there’s more to come. "
