Welcome to GoWaters Swim School in Gothenburg, where we provide swimming lessons and courses for children and adults.

Our expert instructors will support and encourage both young swimmers and adults through all levels, from complete beginner to the confident swimmer! Please don’t worry if you or your child are nervous in or near the water, or fearful of being underwater, or a reluctant swimmer. Our experienced and patient swim teachers are used to this so we can start at the beginning to help you develop your skills and confidence.

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn to swim here. At GoWaters we have qualified instructors that teach in English.

What’s so great about learning to swim?

Lots of things, actually!

Being able to swim is probably one of the most rewarding skills that you can have. Swimming is great for general well-being! It puts much less stress on the body compared to other types of exercise, and can have many health and social benefits.

Swimming lessons are another great way to promote an active and healthy lifestyle for your kids.

As children progress with learning to swim, they gain confidence and take pride in their achievements, including earning their badges. This self-confidence continues when they step out of the pool, and is transferable to other aspects of their lives.

Group swimming lessons enhance children’s socialisation skills, so don’t underestimate the social aspect of swimming courses, alongside learning to swim.

Learning new strokes and seeing improvement is majorly satisfying.

Feeling confident and being safer around water is a huge benefit, and could be life saving!

Our fully-qualified coaches aim to provide all of our swimmers with an outstanding experience in a safe, fun and confidence-building environment.

Please read the description and prerequisites for each course, and choose the one that best suits your needs.

If you are unsure of your level, please feel free to get in touch with us, so that we can help you to decide.
