Testimonials

“Megan really enjoys the intensive swimming lessons. I think it is a good chance for her to get daily practice and coaching. Especially her coach is a very patient and responsible person (Megan loves her and tries very hard whatever she is told to do in the lesson). I really hope you can organise more of those types of intensive lessons in the future. “

“The kids love the classes so much so that we would like to continue. I think they prefer weekdays and consecutive days rather than once per week. We would like to enrol them again.”
