We have 2 modern pools, both fully enclosed and heated up to 33 degrees throughout the year. The 1st pool is 10 meters by 8 meters and 1.2 meters deep. The 2nd pool is 12 meters by 7 meters, and has a deep end to enable us to teach diving and tumble turns. The change rooms are adjoining the pools, with toilet facilities.

Both pools have been built specifically to teach swimming.

The academy is situated in Randburg, on Conrad Drive in Blairgowrie central to Sandton, Hyde Park, Craighall, Linden and Bordeaux. We have 5 highly qualified and experienced instructors who are continuously updating and attending new courses to keep up with the latest teaching methods.  We are listed as one of the preferred logging facilities with Swim South Africa and Swim Dynamics, Associations in Johannesburg.

 We run baby classes from six months, toddlers, learn to swim, stroke correction and beginner adults.
Bookings are essential, as we limit our toddlers and Learn to swim groups to only four in each class.

Here is what some of our customers are saying about our swimming lessons

Thanks for all the patience and consistent encouragement, especially when the kids were very little. Thanks also to Laurel for your philosophy of not forcing kids into the water but introducing them to it gently and kindly. Swimming is one of the activities our girls are most proficient in and enjoy the most.

You have a super school and we are grateful that our girls got to learn how to swim, in the safe hands of you and your team.

We were on holiday and another child pushed my son into the deep end of the pool. Luckily he knew exactly what to do thanks to Donnay from Blairgowrie Swimming Academy.

Excellent swim school , my children love it there. They are have great mitigations to protect all during these Covid times. My children were so happy to be back after 5 months away. 1 year later, just as good and extended family also bringing their kids here.

Perfect for parents who want to teach their babies what to do if falling into a pool. Our son is still there at four years old having started from when he couldn’t even talk or crawl. Heated pool, great coaches. Well worth it.
Kiff H

You have been instrumental in getting her into the school team, which was her goal to begin with, so thank you very much.

I do hope that you go from strength to strength, your swimming school is an asset to our community.

We have been most fortunate to be part of the Blairgowrie Swim Academy since 2011.  It has been a wonderful experience in terms of the swimming and the administration of the Academy.

I took my son to Laurel in 2011 at the age of 3.5 years and he could barely swim, despite swimming lessons for an 18 month period prior to Laurel.  Within one week he was swimming beautifully and has improved so much in such a quick period of time.

The stroke correction has been wonderful and the one-on-one personal touch is just a formula to success.

It has been an unbelievable experience with the water temperature always being maintained.  The facilities are impeccable and are always clean, neat and tidy.

It has been a pleasure being a part of the Blairgowrie Swim Academy, and I would happily recommend this facility to anybody.

Simply Awesome!

Swimming is a great sport that my son enjoys doing. He exercises while having fun in the water. It is also a life skill that I always wanted my child to have, and now I feel safer near water knowing that he can swim. It has been a tremendous pleasure to have you teach my child whether it was to teach him to swim, perfect a stroke or learn a new one.

I have been impressed with the organization of how the swim school has been run, scheduling & availability of teachers, the cleanliness and the demeanor of the teachers.

The facility at Blairgowrie Swimming Academy is first class, heated all year round, under cover with separate changing facilities with very talented and qualified teachers.

I now have a second son who is about ready for the water too and will most certainly be enrolling him at the Blairgowrie Swimming Academy
