The SwimWay teaching programme combines the best aspects of different approaches to swimming instruction, all in line with the STA, NPTS and other international equivalent programme guidelines

The SwimWay programmes have been developed using a combination of different skills. These have been obtained from many countries throughout the world. Australia, New Zealand, USA, South Africa and Brazil among others. The most important aspects of our classes are lesson quality, teachers’ enthusiasm, and the programmes that have been developed and implemented.  Additionally, the environment and water quality/temperature also play an enormous factor in progress.

SwimWay specialises in 1:1 and 1:2 lessons. Thus, the students receive full, direct support inside the water from their teacher.  As a result, we can use only a kickboard as a floatation device without sacrificing safety measures.  Other swim schools often use backpacks, shark wings and noodles. This inevitably delays the learning process.


A good programme will work on fundamentals first.  Breath control, buoyancy, body position, gliding and correct leg kick action.  It is important to work on these foundation skills before introducing the full stroke. Students that are given the correct core elements will thrive, and become good swimmers.
