Profile:

I worked in a school as a gym teacher for children and youngsters for many years until I injured my knee skiing. This had an impact on the rest of my career and I changed direction to became a full time swim teacher at several schools in the Rotterdam and Leiden area.

I am the father of 3 grownups, a handyman and I am slowly approaching retirement with no plans as yet!

 

Coaching Style:

I am confident that everyone can learn to swim although it may take a little while. With this in mind, my lessons and explanations are adjusted according to the need of the swimmers. I enjoy accompanying my students through that process. I believe swimming is an exercise for all types of people. The amount of flexibility as well as agility one acquires through swimming increases the body’s stamina and mental acuity.

 

Specialities:

I am that coach who can deal with any level of swimmers in any pool. Within 45 minutes, I offer them exactly what they need. My very strong didactical skills and foundation in swimming make a perfect starting point for beginner learners. I bring 25 years of experience with me, therefore I am involved with coaching younger coaches as well… That is why they call me the Padre de Familia of the School.

“Stop prolonging the fear of water or any other destructive thought you may have, just show up and you will be hooked. So, let’s meet and get familiarized with water sooner than later.”
