How it works

The private lessons are 1-on-1 or 1-on-2 and evolve around making you feel relaxed before entering the water and making you feel confident when you’re in the water. 

Options are available  in  Scheveningen, The Hague, in Amsterdam ( Friendship and Sportfondsen Oost), Diemen and Utrecht on request. Mostly our swimmers book a package of 4 , which has proven to be enough to offer you a kick-start and let you continue the rest of the journey in one of our small groups.

1. Book your session

Follow the normal route for booking a try out lesson and leave a note in which you request these 1-on-1 sessions first. One of our office members shall call you to book the sessions with you.

2. At arrival, let’s get comfortable

On site, you will be welcomed by your own personal coach and will take time to chat first. After you expressed how you feel about it, your goal and/or how the previous experiences you will enter the water together.

3. First steps in the pool

During the swim sessions you always got your personal swim coach on your side. Most of the time he or she is the one who is guiding the small groups as well, hence a perfect guide along the journey. Together you will  enter the warm, shallow water with the maximum depth of 1,40 meters.

4. At your own pace

And at your pace we guide you on your next steps while making you feel 100% comfortable and secure in the water. At the end of the lesson there is time to evaluate the lesson and in addition all swimmers can follow their progress online too.

A flexible subscription with fast progress

The Private lessons can be booked as individual lessons, so after each lesson you can decide if you want to continue or perhaps move over to the small groups; 5 adults who are all beginners like you.

Do realize that you are not the only adult who can’t swim. It is very encouraging to join a small group.

Progress after 4 lessons

The lessons will be perfectly customized to your needs, so you will experience growth and progression already after a few lessons. Depending on your starters level and/or anxiety level you will be able to float and be able to move around  independently after 4 lessons.

At arrival you receive a swim cap ( not obligated to wear) bring goggles if you like to, although we shall practize a lot without goggles too. Wear flipflops or slippers since the pool floar can be slippery when wet.
