What you'll do

I'll give you a 1-hour swimming crash course so you can quickly become confident in the water and learn how to practice movements on your own. If need be, I'll take some time to introduce you to the swimming basics before getting into more complex strokes. I'll be in the water with you to ensure your safety and a great learning experience. The Sydney Olympic Pool is an iconic location under the bridge. The pool is heated, which is ideal as the weather is still warming up! After the lesson, I recommend making the most of the pool and continuing to enjoy the water or relax on the pool deck. Next door you can find Lunar Park or visit the nearby Wendy Whiteley's Secret Garden.

Elizabeth

I began teaching swimming to friends. It all started in a hotel pool in Singapore when I taught a colleague to swim 10 metres in 3 hours from 0. Swimming is a central part of Australian culture and a favourite pastime of mine. There's nothing better than swimming in the cool blue ocean! I've been swimming for as long as I can remember and have Surf Life Saving and First Aid qualifications. I am also a qualified Australian swim instructor. Swimming is great for your confidence, it gives you access to water-based activities: pools, boats, oceans,water-sports… etc and it’s great fitness! I'd love to help you get started, improve and experience the enjoyment!
