Learn to Swim to Survive – Don’t Just Learn to Survive
We Teach Everyone to SWIM to SURVIVE 
not Just to SURVIVE!
John Believes that: 
”The Distance Swum is Not Relevant; 
Important is the Swimmer’s Relationship with the Water at Any One Moment”.
John’s motivation to teach and coach swimming as well as own and run a swim school is simple: The desire to provide others, with the life skills to move comfortably & calmly through water with efficiency and speed at any age!
