Swim with us on Sunday in the renovated Van Maanenpool in Rotterdam. On Sunday afternoons, beginners are welcome in the shallow, warm water pool where they are guided by our coaches in hands-on, personalized lessons. After reaching a certain level of swimming, you can transition to the deep-water pool where you join the ABC diploma swimming lessons or the sports swimming class.

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 ;)""
Ciao Tutti, I swopped Milan for a new life in the Netherlands. I have been working for decades as a qualified teacher for adults and children. I can guarantee my full commitment to every swimmer in my class; beginners, advanced as well as masters. Within those 45 minutes, I will help you reach your next level. I love to see my swimmers get satisfaction when they reached their targets time after time. Whether it is a new stroke, a longer distance or a complete different exercise. Arrivederci !"
"We say...a man can live 5 days without water... only if he is not a swimmer!""
I used to play water polo and even made it into the regional team. After being asked to provide water polo training for my local club, I found out that I really enjoyed coaching. So, right after graduating high school, I signed up to become a swimming instructor. A decision that I have never regretted. Working with Your Personal Swim Coach is much more that just being an instructor. Our students deserve to be encouraged; it is super brave to be deal with a fear. Besides that, students come to socialize too. I let them too, of course, as long as they make progress during and after attending to my lessons."
"I try to combine drills, a bit of chatting and several water exercises in all of my classes. Those 45 minutes are finished in a blink of an eye.""
I started swimming at an early age when I arrived from Iran. My mother had also learned swimming in the Netherlands, so I had witnessed this process closely. Therefore I know firsthand how life changing it can be. I found my passion for teaching after I had finished high school. I decided to take a year off and become a swim instructor. Currently I am a bachelor student in chemistry as well."
I get really excited when I see that my students are making progress. I prepare my lessons in advance in order to make sure that my students will have fun during the class.
"To all the students out there, you may hate your coach once in a while. But you should know they are really happy to see you are learning. Your progress is their best reward.""
I’ve been swimming for as long as I remember; I’m pretty sure I began swimming before I started school. While I’ve done other sports on and off ever since, swimming is one that I’ve stuck to until now. For me personally it is both a great form of physical exercise and mental relaxation."
I began teaching swimming in my last years of high school in Prague. At first I mainly taught young kids and teenagers, but gradually also adults.
"I enjoy giving swimming lessons to all these different age groups as I think it's worthwhile to teach people what I believe to be a valuable and rewarding skill to have.""
