Learn to swim :

On top of public swimming, we team up with several well-established swimming schools and sports clubs in Dubai for swimming programs catered only to children. Even though the standard depth of our swimming pools here is 3 meters, the swimming pool can be transformed into a 0.5 meter shallow pool for kids as young as 3 years old for our ‘learn to swim’ program; and go back to the original depth of 3m for the training needs of professional swimmers such as those from the UAE National Team.

The transformation of pool sizes and depths takes not more than 5 minutes, thus making us highly flexible for diverse aquatic training needs, whilst not disturbing public swimming.

A little history on Swimming :

Competitive swimming in Europe started around 1800, mostly using the breaststroke. In 1873 John Arthur Trudgen introduced the trudgen to Western swimming competitions, after copying the front crawl used by Native Americans. Due to a British disregard for splashing, Trudgen employed a scissor kick instead of the front crawl's flutter kick. Swimming was part of the first modern Olympic games in 1896 in Athens. In 1902 Richard Cavill introduced the front crawl to the Western world. In 1908, the world swimming association, Federation Internationale de Natation (FINA), was formed. The butterfly stroke was developed in the 1930s and was at first a breaststroke variant, until it was accepted as a separate style in 1952. In 1964, Lillian Bonnell won the award for being the first woman to participate in a swimming competition and because of her now millions of women participate every year.
