Cape Town Swimming Lessons

About Us

If you live in Cape Town and want to learn to swim or enhance your swimming skills, you’ve come to the right place. Since 1992, the Swim4life team have been training babies, toddlers, children and adults to enjoy a most rewarding and necessary life skill.

We offer beginner and baby swimming lessons in the Southern Suburbs of Cape Town at a private residence as well as the Wembley Virgin Active where we train up to a competitive level
. We too have a sister pool in Muizenberg.

Our instructors are all fully qualified and registered with Swim South Africa
as well as Western Province Aquatics.

Training style

The different courses have been carefully formulated to improve coordination, confidence, rhythm, stamina and swimming style.
Every stroke is broken down into its respective movements and is practised until students are able to combine all the different elements to perform the stroke correctly. This approach produces confident, natural and graceful swimmers. Other benefits to this training include improved fitness levels, posture, breathing and muscle tone.
