With 30 years of experience in the industry of teaching swimming, either as an elite level swimming coach to facilitating large learn to swim programmes or teaching the teachers and operators, we have a broad knowledge of what is the best practice in teaching and operation of learn to swim centres and programmes. Cools Swim School uses the techniques of Infant Self Rescue developed in the USA and have been trained to implement these techniques.
SWIMMING POOL OPERATION
Operating a public swimming pool with a much higher bathing load than normal backyard pools requires an in-depth knowledge of how to obtain the ideal pool balance. It is paramount to running a good centre that the operator can safely maintain a clean and hygienic pool. Having leased a number of olympic pools and being qualified as a pool plant operator and pool superintendent since 1993 ensures that we operate at the highest of standards.
