About me, the pool and the Premises
I have been teaching swimming now for 15 years, and I love to see the results of teaching a Life Saving Skill.
I ran my own swim school in Welkom before moving to Gauteng, working at various swim schools in Johannesburg and Pretoria. I also worked at the Planet Fitness Gym in Wanderers for 6 years teaching swimming. I have been at my present position, in Blairgowrie since 2011 and have built up a large swimming academy, with 2 large pools and change room facilities, with 5 other well qualified teachers working for me, who are patient, committed and consistent instructors, they attend yearly CPR and First Aid courses to maintain their high standards.
Our pools are indoors, heated throughout the year and hygienically maintained. The water is tested regularly by reputable pool companies / laboratories. The temperature is kept at a constant 32 degrees throughout the year. (this is a recommended temperature especially for babies).
The swim school has 2 chlorine pools and over the years have tested salt chlorinators, peroxide filtration and ozone friendly filtration systems, but there is nothing to compare to the tried and tested, reliable chlorine filtration systems.
The larger pool has been specifically built with a deeper end to teach diving and tumble turns, whilst the square pool has been designed to teach younger pupils and also adults who cannot swim at all, as they are able to stand throughout the pool, and thus not fearing the thought of a deeper end.
There is a lovely shaded patio area at both pools for the parents, guardians, drivers, to sit and wait for their children, tea, coffee, coldrinks , cupcakes can be bought whilst reading magazines to while away the time.
The waiting area if fully visible to the swimmers and we are fully transparent in our teaching and instructions but encourage the parents to sit outside so that we can have the undivided attention of all the little swimmers.
We are central in the Northern Suburbs, Blairgowrie is surrounded by Craighall Park, Bordeaux, Ferndale and Linden, close to Hyde Park, Sandton and Hurlingham .
The swim school is accredited with the Swim South Africa Association and frequently have students coming to do their practical logging hours and exams at the school.
The parking is safe and inside the premises.
