The Stars Story

When Stars Swimming School was established in February 2004, it was with a deep desire to share our love for swimming with our friends and family. Growing up around water, we quickly saw how being able to swim allowed us to have so much more fun when out at the beach or in the pool, and we wanted to share those great experiences with others around us so that they too could have their own water adventures.

Early on it became apparent that much of the fun we had in the water came from the process of learning to swim. Through swimming; we made friends, played water games and explored a new art form, learning what thoroughly excited us as children.

We also recognised the importance of learning to swim as a life skill, which further grounded our belief that every person, if given the correct instruction and access, could learn to swim and enjoy the benefits of being water safe. It was obvious that we had to share this joy and knowledge, and a swimming school was the ideal platform for us to do so.

Rooted in our own personal values is the idea to inspire and teach others to learn to swim by creating a values-driven authentic, people-centric organisation. Opening Stars Swimming School has transcended this dream for us, as Cape Town’s first 3-pool Learn to Swim centre specifically developed for teaching the fundamentals of swimming and water safety in an innovative 3-pool programme aimed at all people.

“Today our dream has become a swim school filled with love and a place to listen and learn from our children so that we can make the best of their experiences.”

“We are an organisation that makes more time for people, because we care.”

At Stars Swimming School we understand that our team is the foundation of the culture and values we promote. The Stars family comprises a selection of passionate individuals that are both experienced and highly qualified to instruct Learn to Swim and adept at running an organisation built around sound business fundamentals. This includes a history of provincial and Springbok-level competitive swimmers, sport scientists, educators and, of course, swimming enthusiast. We believe in a holistic, creative approach to our family-run business and this diversity underpins the excellence for which we strive.

It is an incredible privilege to have the opportunity to create something of our own, while at the same time having fun doing what we love. We are immensely grateful for this opportunity made possible by you, and understand our responsibility to stay true to our ethos of serving others. With your support we envisage that one day we will teach every individual in Cape Town to swim using the Stars Swimming School programme.

Inspired and excited, our journey has just begun.



We welcome you to the Stars Swimming School family.
