Learn to Swim
Development Through Sport focuses on teaching learn to swim to previously disadvantaged children and young adults from the Hout Bay and Cape Town surrounds.
Learn to swim Hout Bay has been in operation since 2007.
We have been working with a number of children, watching them grow as people and see their swimming skills radically improve. Some have helped us with the coaching, and others have moved to highschool where they have joined the waterpolo team, and school swimming team.
Learn to swim Sea Point Pavilion has been in operation since 2011.
We have been working with thousands of children from all over Cape Town. School buses drop off the children and our coaches have helped improve their water skills.
Basics are taught – how to kick, breath and feel safer in the water.
Although the time is limited with the coach it has been an amazing experience to have so many children keen to learn and we can only hope to grow this going forward.
