" If it can be done, we can do it"
Using our experience and a hands-on approach, we have developed our own swimming programme and swimming awards system. Our passion to teach children to be safe in the water has led us to teaching others the “ISA way”. This is where our ISA Qualified instructor swimming programmes originated. Parallel to our work in the water, work behind the scenes is needed.
Since the foundation of our swimming academy in 2014, we have researched and pushed to develop our customer service, administration and booking systems.
Who we are out of the water
Miguel loves pushing boundaries to strive for better. He pays great attention to detail. He is creative, a daydreamer, a passionate rock singer and guitar student with a very special sensitivity. He’s an incredible storyteller which he has combined with a good eye for video footage, music and brilliant editing skills to make the videos that you have seen throughout this website. He has polished the entire website to make it look nice. He is also in charge of making the numbers right for the business!
Silvia is the thoughtful, but artistic heart. She strives to bring a sense of authenticity in everything she does. She likes connecting with people on a more personal level. Her critical and academic eye helps to understand areas for improvement. Her creativity has helped her to design the website, handpick the right images and choose the other artwork, such as the swimmer’s awards. She looks after the social media and the marketing.
Making meaningful connections
Yes! We have done all of these things based on our own experience, but it is true that we couldn’t make it without a few more generous people’s support in London and in our home town, Villarrobledo, Albacete, Spain (where we run our Spain Summer Intensive course).
