For Swimming Skills

At Van der Wal Sports and Swimming Academy, we use the A-B-C diploma from ZwemOnderwijs Nederland. The difference with the regular A-B-C from NRZ or Sep and Sop diplomas is that after obtaining our A diploma, your child can immediately swim in a pool with slides, currents, and play equipment. Your child will feel safe and confident in the water. Survival swimming is taught in addition to the B and C diploma.
