Swim Academy Manager – Adam Richards
B.Ed. Qualified Teacher Status & ASA Level 2 Swimming Teacher

Thank you to Adam and the team, my daughter had no confidence in the water before attending the Swim Academy, now you can’t get her out of the water!


Buzz (and I) love your lessons. They are exactly the right amount of time and the interaction/support he gets from you and your team is excellent


Adam and his team have nurtured our twin girls from non-swimmers to confident fish! They have enjoyed their lessons so much that their big brother wanted to join too and he is loving learning more advanced techniques. Thanks Swim Academy team!
