HEADSTART SWIM SCHOOL was launched in May 2006, and is run according to the Swimming South Africa (SSA) approved, Learn-to-swim methodology. We believe that adults and children learn better through having fun in a safe, non-threatening environment.
HEADSTART instructors are passionate about teaching people of all ages to swim and we are registered with SSA and attend first aid training annually as well as other relevant SSA and in-house talks and workshops regularly.
Swimming South Africa runs its Learn-to-Swim program for the following reasons:
- As a Vital Life Skill
- To reduce drownings
- To provide a healthy lifestyle
- For recreational purposes
