Learning to swim can be quite exciting for your child; the pool, unfamiliar faces, everything is new. To help your son or daughter process all these impressions, we create a safe environment from the very beginning.
In the Netherlands, anyone can offer swimming classes and issue a swimming diploma, as it is not legally regulated. Unfortunately, not all different swimming diplomas always lead to the same National Swimming Safety Standard.
However, we hold the National Swimming Diploma License and undergo independent assessments each year by the National Swimming Safety Council (formerly National Platform Swimming Pools | NRZ). This ensures that, as a parent, you can be certain that the swimming lessons and swimming diploma comply with the most recent quality criteria, laying the foundation for a lifetime of swimming pleasure and safety.
This provides you, as a parent/guardian, with 4 assurances:
Certified and qualified swimming instructors, ensuring your child is in safe hands and enjoys swimming lessons. Our swimming instructors adhere to the Swimming Industry Code of Conduct, possess a Certificate of Conduct (VOG), and continually receive further training.
Your child will receive the National Swimming Diplomas A, B, and C. Obtaining the National Swimming Diploma C means your child meets the National Swimming Safety Standard. These official diplomas are recognized, for example, by the fire brigade, police, and sports training programs for various professions.
The swimming teacher follows a clearly described swimming lesson method, enabling you to choose the best provider for your child. During the swimming classes, you will also be well-informed about your child's progress.
Consistent quality from the swimming teacher, ensured through independent annual inspections and assessment moments during the diploma swimming tests.
A swimming club for everyone.

Very good swimming classes! Lots of personal attention for the children, which allows them to progress to a high level quickly.
What an incredibly pleasant swimming school. Small groups with lots of personal attention. Salah is patient and instills confidence in the children's swimming abilities. Our little guy already has 2 diplomas under his belt!
