SO WHO ARE WE?

 

Superswim Academy was founded in 2015 by Leande Carstens after working as a full time swimming instructor for 4 years prior. We are situated in the heart of Durbanville and have a wonderful, fully enclosed, indoor facility with water that is heated between 32 and 34 degrees (salt water). Needless to say – our swimming program continues all year round.We pride ourselves in the fact that we have a child orientated approach and we aim to instil a love for water, instead of a fear, in every child that passes through our pool.
 
We provide a safe, friendly and inviting environment where children can learn while having fun and feeling supported and motivated.Knowing full well that all children learn and progress differently our swim school offers one on one lessons as well as paired lessons where your little one can swim with a partner.
 
Our team consists of five instructors. All of our instructors are INTERNATIONALLY qualified through the STA, and hold the relevant safety training as well. We specialize in baby swimming from the age of 3 weeks, water safety, learn to swim, beginner strokes as well as stroke correction.
 
 

ABOUT US…

We offer indoor swimming lessons to children of all ages. Our pool is heated, so our swimming lessons continue throughout the year.
Our swim school is based in the heart of Durbanville at number 2 Slangkop way.
 
We have a wonderful, fully enclosed, indoor facility with water that is heated up to 32 degrees (salt water). Our instructors are all fully qualified, have a valid First Aid level 1 and have an absolute passion for working with children.
 
We pride ourselves in the fact that we have a child orientated approach. We aim to instill a love for water instead of a fear. We specialize in baby swimming from the age of 6 months, water safety, learn to swim, beginner strokes as well as stroke correction. Once our swimmers are proficient in all 4 strokes we will then notify you that they are ready to swim in a squad – should they wish to further the sport.

We are also one of the few swim schools that offer one on one coaching sessions. Please remember that swimming is not the same as an extra mural. It is a life skill that could potentially save your child’s life. But it is
also a very scary venture for your little one. So please be patient with
them as they start this new journey.


The number one question parents ask when enrolling their little one for swimming is -
The number one question parents ask when enrolling their little one for swimming is - "How long will it take for them to swim?" For 7 years I have been trying to perfect my answer to this question - so that moms and dads can understand the full extent of what it is I am trying to say. Until one of my very own mommies said it so beautifully- "When a child starts a sport or extra mural like ballet or rugby for instance - it takes years for them to properly master the skill. And if they really want to excel in it - they will spend a lifetime continuously refining and perfecting their technique. And we as parents are there to support and motivate them every step of the way. But for some reason when it comes to something as complicated as swimming - we expect it to happen within a term?" Swimming is one of the toughest skills a child will ever learn and demands so much from their little brains and bodies. Please remember that swimming is so much more than an extra mural.It is a life skill that could potentially save your child's life. That being said - it is also a scary venture for your little one - they are entering a new environment with a total stranger. So please be patient with them as some little ones take a little longer to adapt than others. One or two lessons are not nearly enough to make an informed decision. We ask that you place your trust in us and our ability to teach your child and be there to support them every step of the way.
