Meet Coach Yvonne

Training experience

1 year



Living in The Netherlands since:



Dutch, English, French

Pool location:

The Hague


Born and raised in the province of Zeeland, I am very aware of the importance of swimming. All my life, I’ve been passionate about survival skills, and swimming in general.

My career in the swimming business started as a lifeguard at a local pool. My experiences as a lifeguard have made me passionate about teaching people how to swim. The ability to swim gives you great freedom in a country like the Netherlands and is vital to your personal safety.

I study Public Administration and French Language and Culture, both at Leiden University.

Coaching Style:

Swimming is fun, so swimming lessons should be fun too. With a personal and kind approach, I try to find out what works best for each individual. Humour is my greatest weapon making my lessons useful, and fun at the same time.


Being a coach in the Water Introduction Level, I’ve been successful in helping people overcome their fears, and dealing with lower floating capacities.

“Bend, spread, close.”
