Background Information

I'm from South Africa and can also speak Portuguese. I've been coaching kids for 10 years overall, 8 years of this was in Dubai. I start from ages 3 and above and really get kids to a competitive level. I love teaching kids and will also do my very best to get the kids swimming the right technique and make them achieve their goals. I also swam provincially and loved the competition.  

I only start with kids 3 years and above and he/she needs to be water confident as I focus more on the teaching part and want to get your child swimming the right technique as fast as possible.   

I can provide both group sessions and private sessions. If I can’t fit you in for a private session in the afternoons I'm always open to do early mornings before school as availability is limited.

Sergio has been an inspirational coach for my 8 year old son. He learned the right technique for all 4 strokes from him, developed tremendously in such a short time and now he is competing in galas. Coach Sergio is super friendly, approachable and extremely attentive to the individual needs of all his students. His classes are always super fun with the famous "throw" at the end.

Sergio is an amazing coach! He has been training my children 10 and 6 for a few years and their swimming has improved immensely thanks to his fun, personal and professional approach. He makes learning fun for them and they look forward to their session every week. Get a slot and don’t let go....they are like gold dust!

Coach Sergio is amazing and fully qualified teacher. He teaches my 4 years and 7 years old kids. Kids master the 4 strokes from teacher very quickly. They really enjoy playing in water and most importantly, it is much safer for kids. He is very careful and patient, lots of fun for kids. He is the best swimming coach I have never seen.

Sergio is a great swim coach for our 4 yr and 7 yr old. Their technique and confidence has improved dramatically in just 1 term. They love the swim Gala at the end of each season . We will definitely be bringing our 1 yr old to Sergio when she reaches 3. Great price and great venue too.

Sergio is the best swimming coach that my kids ever had. He is just amazing. My boys’ swimming skills improved a lot. I’m not talking just about techniques. Sergio helps the kids to believe in themselves and push them to the limit so they can have the sense of achievement and accomplishment. I can’t thank you enough, Sergio.

Sergio is the best swimming teacher I have seen so far. Not only the technic he teaches to children but also the interaction with his students always amaze me. Every session I can see my daughter and her peer have a great time learning and enjoying swimming with Sergio. He puts a great effort in teaching with his endless positive energy. I highly recommend him to whomever looking for a swimming instructor for themselves or their kids!

Sergio is Dubai’s Aquaman! Having him teach my 5 year old has been the best choice I made for her. He is a master in technique and watching my daughters transformation has been remarkable. He has a way with children that is so heartwarming. So grateful and happy to have him as our coach!

Sergio is an amazing teacher. Our little Amelia was scared of jumping into the swimming pool before taking Sergio’s classes. It’s been an incredible change and she’s progressing fast. I would definitely recommend if you need a swimming teacher for your kids.

Sergio is an outstanding swim coach. My son loves his lessons with him. He teaches techniques in a really interactive way and is always in the pool showing the children what to do. You can be confident that your child is getting the best coaching possible and will become a strong swimmer while also having fun!

Sergio has been the most amazing coach for my children. We have been swimming with him for over 5 years now and I could not have imagined the progress I have seen. What sets Sergio apart is the way he sees each child as an individual offering personalized attention to each. His focus on teaching the four strokes from a young age has been a great advantage for my children now they are swimming competitively. He is a natural teacher and I could not recommend him more highly.

My daughter has been taking swimming classes with coach Sergio for almost a year and a half now and she has improved A LOT! Sergio is amazing with kids, he is kind, listens to their stories and interacts with them and at the same time he is firm and dedicated to teaching them and bringing out the best swimmers in them. He puts such a great effort focusing on each individual with his possitive approach. Also he is really understanding to our kids busy schedules and would always offer a make up class to any missed one. I can’t recommend him enough!

My 7yr old has been swimming with Sergio for the last 18 months. He has made tremendous progress with all 4 strokes and diving. Sergio has also helped him become more confident in the water by taking the time to make sure his technique is correct. Sergio is a great coach and I highly recommend him.

Sergio is not only a great swim coach but such a role model for the kids with his kind and patient personality.

My kids have been taking lessons with him from the first week we arrived in Dubai, six years ago, and are still swimming with him. I think that’s the best publicity a caoch can get. Sergio teaches in a very professional, but fun way. He is very patient with the younger ones and brings the kids to a higher competitive level. My daughter, who is 13 now, still likes his lessons, because he works very well with teenagers too. I can highly recommend Sergio!

Sergio has taught both my boys swimming and their development has been fantastic. With small classes the kids can’t blend into the background! He is hands on, in the pool, encouraging and correcting the kids strokes. Highly recommend him.

Sergio is a very skilled teacher who clearly loves teaching. My 4yr old son adores him and loves going to lessons, he is now able to swim a length doing front crawl, breast stroke and back stroke. My 7yr old daughter’s technique is beautiful - I love the way she swims and Sergio has made this happen. In short, my kids NEVER moan when it’s swimming day / that’s a win for me!

Sergio is a fantastic swim coach. My 9 year old son swims competitively and Sergio has helped to improve his times considerably. He gives a great deal of attention to technique which is often lacking in other swim coaching we have attended. My 5 year old daughter has now also started with Sergio and in just a few lessons has improved dramatically. He is often seen supporting kids in their external galas and the children adore him. I cannot recommend Sergio highly enough!

Sergio has coached my 7 year old daughter since she was 4, and she loves his classes. He has an incredible attention to detail, focusing on each child’s strokes in turn and combines his motivational coaching style with a friendly yet professional manner. He also runs a fun, family orientated gala for all his pupils at the end of every term, which is a real community event. I would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone who would like to learn to swim or improve their strokes with a kind and attentive coach who also knows how to get the very best out of all his pupils.

We’ve been sending our 8-year old son to Sergio for almost two years now and we definitely wouldn’t change things. I saw a big improvement very quickly not just in his skill level but also his motivation and enjoyment. Sergio has a great knack of pushing the kids in the right way, making them feel comfortable and inspiring their competitive spirit.

Sergio is a very popular swimming coach and it is not difficult to understand why. He is dedicated, and has a special way of getting through to the children. I like that he is IN the pool with the children and hands-on. I could see the change in my child's swimming ability in just 2 lessons. It is such a joy to watch the children always swimming their hearts out; lessons are always effective with a bit of fun factor at the end.

Sergio did a fabulous job with my son, Yassine. Sergio managed to not only remove from him the fear of the deep but also helped Yassine grow in a confident swimmer. Yassine won multiple school competitions thanks to Sergio. The technique is impeccable. My daughter is currently taking classes with Sergio and am very pleased with the progress she makes. I highly recommend Sergio and am thankful to his efforts with my two kids.

Sergio is an inspirational teacher who helped my 6 yrs old son to enjoy swimming again(after so many boring classes at school where he lost his interest)... He is very attentive to each child's need and help them to improve by 1 to 1 teaching model despite it is a group session. Kids learn all 4 strokes fast and they are looking forward to the class. His famous 'throw' is working like a glue that attached my kid to his classes... :)
