I am a certified PADI Swim Instructor and also a PADI Staff Instructor (scuba diving).
My swim instruction method is the PADI Swim School, which is an internationally recognised swimming instruction programme, developed in cooperation with Starfish Aquatics Institute (USA) who’s vision is “Saving Lives One At A Time.”
Swimming lessons have never been so much fun. Learning how to swim saves lives!
PADI Swim School
The PADI Swim School curriculum consists of courses containing age-appropriate activities that focus on development of core aquatic skill competencies. The curriculum is built around the concept that there are core aquatic skills (competencies) that every person needs to know to be proficient in the water. The core competencies provide the foundation that will enable students to first learn functional self-survival skills, then learn correct swimming stroke technique by building upon what they already know.
The courses include:
- StarBabies/Tots (age 6 – 36 months)
- Swim School (pre-school, youth, adult)
- Stroke School
- The curriculum also includes several special programmes that integrate, adapt, or build upon the core courses:
- Swim Team
- SwimPrep for Scuba
- StarFun and Fitness
- Introduction to Triathlon
In affiliation with the Al Mahara Diving Centre, Swim Bike Run offers all of these courses, and can also incorporate them into an existing programme such as a summer or winter camp, with further breakdown into classes with different names for registration purposes.
This is an innovative curriculum, involving learning surrounding five core competencies, with lead-up skills taught gradually to achieve specific benchmarks. As the student moves through each level, they can fill in a Personal Record book, and they are awarded fun patchesto demonstrate their achievements. Great for fun-loving adults too!
Group lessons consist of no more than six children in a group and each course consists of eight 30 minute lessons. I also offer private lesson which provide a one-on-one focus for the student. Pre-school without the parents in the pool will have a smaller group size to ensure safety and comfort of learning. Our philosophy is to provide a comfortable environment conducive for students to learn in.
