Elite Swimming Academy

Swimming with Elite is great fun and has many health benefits as well as educating swimmers in water safety and working towards becoming successful athletes. With this in mind, we have developed a fun filled program that follows the British ASA (Amateur Swimming Association) framework. We also draw on our highly qualified coaches with innovative ideas to help your child become the best swimmer they can possibly be.

Learn to swim:

Our Stages system places students on a journey towards complete proficiency in all strokes (e.g. freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, side stroke, inverted breaststroke) and swimming skills.

The swimmer’s journey through aquatics following the framework will result in the development of a wide range of skills. These skills are pieces of a jigsaw and when put together, they will result in a competent, confident and safe swimmer who has the foundations needed to help them reach their potential in swimming, as well as a skill base that can be developed for a wide range of water-based sports.

Swim squads:

Swim squads are aimed at those Swimmers that have completed the Learn to Swim stages and also want to improve their stroke technique, power & fitness to the standard at which they can Swim competitively and improve their times.

Squad Swimmers train across multiple days in order to accelerate their learning and compete in galas against the very best opposition in Dubai. The lessons delivered have a key focus on stroke refinement, improving fitness/stamina and learning how to prepare the body and mind for competitive events.

Dates and times:

We offer a range of flexible session times both after school and at weekends.
