Swimming lessons with real attention

About us

About us

The most enjoyable swimming lessons since 2011!

Van der Wal Sport and Swim Academy was founded in 2011 by Marloes van der Wal. Swimming runs in my blood! My mother swam with the world’s top athletes, and I trained under her guidance. After completing various sports education programs (including Sports and Exercise Coordinator, HVA Sports Management & Entrepreneurship, National Academy of Sports Medicine), I focused on teaching swimming lessons. I have worked for various swim schools both in the Netherlands and abroad, which has given me a broad perspective on swimming instruction. In 2011, I took the step to establish my own swim school with child-centered education.

Why choose us?

We believe it’s crucial for every child to feel at home with us. With swimming lessons, children learn not only how to swim but also gain self-confidence, discipline, and the ability to overcome fears. The team at Van der Wal Sport & Swim Academy has extensive experience in teaching children. We have a good sense of what it takes to make progress in a relaxed manner. It’s no wonder that parents always praise us for our approach to children and the quality of our lessons. Feel free to come by for a trial lesson and experience it for yourself!
