About Slipstream swim school

At Slipstream swim school we believe that every South African child should undertake some form of structured swimming education. Swimming is embedded in the South African culture and our way of life.The ability to swim well is not only potentially life-saving but is also a core life skill that will provide lasting benefits and enjoyment to all South Africans. Slipstream swim school provides swimming programs for all ages. We have been pioneering new teaching and training methods for more than 20 years and are recognised as a leader in all aspects of aquatic education.



Small, graded classes

All new swimmers from our Preschool Program and above are assessed to make sure they are placed in a class that best suits their ability. Our structured lesson formats and small class sizes ensure that each and every child is given focused attention to reach their potential.


Fun and active learning

All of our classes have been designed to balance fun, exercise and correct technique. It is important to make sure swimming lessons are fun whilst ensuring kids are learning how to swim well.


Regular updates

Feedback is important and that’s why we aim to provide all of our parents with a detailed update on their child’s progress every 3-4 months. 


World class instructors

In addition to attaining a nationally recognised qualification, all our teachers and coaches receive extensive in-house training through Slipstream swim school.  On-deck Supervisors and ongoing professional development provide additional support so our team can provide the best lessons possible.


Purpose built facility

All of our facilities are purpose built utilising the latest in air handling and water treatment technology. Our teaching pools are heated to 32 degrees year round to ensure that our little swimmers are as comfortable as possible while they learn to swim well.

What parents say?
