Swim Dynamics was formed by Dee Barnard and Bev Verweij, two accomplished South African swim teachers, when they recognised the need for swimming instructor courses that would train aspiring swim instructors to teach swimming correctly, and so raise the standards of coaching in South Africa.

Courses are facilitated in locations across South Africa, making it accessible to everyone who wishes to become swimming instructors, or those who are already instructors, but who hope to improve their teaching skills.

The Swim Dynamics facilitators and trainers have a wealth of experience in the industry and wish to share their knowledge and experience with others in the interests of the sport and the community, enhance the profession, and create opportunities for swim instructors.

Swim Dynamics SA offers 4 courses

  • Baby Course is to train instructors on the specialised act of teaching babies from 6 months to 3 years to swim.

  • Level 1 will enable you to teach children from 3 to 7 years.

  • Level 2 course enables you to teach children between the ages of 8 and 15 to swim.

  • Special Need course enables you to teach children with special needs to swim.

Our courses teach innovative ideas and skills to ensure that the way in which you teach is safe, while still being creative, holistic and effective.

To take it further, we also guide you through the process of setting up or improving your own swim school, showing you how your passion for teaching can combine with good business sense to run a successful, rewarding swim school.

Swim Dynamics aims to provide comprehensive courses that touch on everything from the psychological and physical considerations of different age groups to the running of swimming schools as successful businesses.

Swim Dynamics Charity Work

Swim Dynamics believes in giving back to the community.

St Francis Care Centre

We have been taking the orphans from St Francis Care Centre in Boksburg, for swimming lessons for the past 15 years. Our aim is to get the children water safe at the very least, before they leave the home at 6 years old to move to another facility. Fiona Tonkin from The Swim Gym Swim School very kindly allows us the use of her indoor pool for the purpose of teaching the children to swim. Instructors that give their time to teach the orphans are: Nadine Kuhn, Sarah Wolmarans, Fiona Tonkin, Carol Masencamp & Bev Verweij

The Almond Tree Baby Home

We have recently started a swim programme with the children from The Almond Tree Baby home in Benoni, Bev Verweij, Carol Masencamp, Sarah Wolmans, Shellby Verweij, Nadine Kuhn and Michelle Adams assist with the teaching.
