This is how we do it
Super Shark Swim School employs a unique way of coaching, being in the water with the student at all times, depending on the student’s level of competency.
We adhere to an effective results orientated program that is not demanding on the students.
We do an unofficial evaluation during each lesson, and an official evaluation once a year when we hand certificates out to each of our students according to their competency level.
Ed is a great teacher and coach. You can never go wrong with him as your coach.

The way we coach
We give clear instructions in a fun-filled environment. Our students (children) learn through games and individual challenges according to their abilities.
We follow an age-specific program, keeping same-age students together. We also have smaller intimate groups.
Our Lessons & Programs
We teach safety in and around the pool.
We teach our students what to do should they fall into a pool and how to get out the water without help.
Students learn to swim independently with and without floatation devices.
Giving Back to the Community
We believe in giving back to the community. Due to the drowning statistics in South Africa, we sponsor children whose parents cannot afford lessons. These children join our interactive classes and finish our “learn to swim” program with the introduction of crawl and backstroke.
Partnering in Education
Swimming with Super Shark is an educational experience! Not just a sports activity.
We do teach children how to swim using somatic and methodical features, but there is so much more which the coach offers the student.
