English speaking swimming teachers or pools in Geneva.

Hi Guys!

Anybody found an English speaking swimming teacher in Geneva? Or a pool that has English speaking teacher? I though that being Geneva is international with many nationalities living under one roof there would be some kind of arrangement for English swimming lessons? Any thoughts welcome

Re: English speaking swimming teachers or pools in Geneva.

There are not many pools in Genveva, so swimming with English speaking instructor I am not aware of. Most go over the border to France to swim in the "Bains", much more child friendly, heated water, etc. If you are already in Haute Savoie, I expect you will be better off searching in France. That being said, if you are looking in Vaud, there is La Ligniere that offers instruction in English.

Re: English speaking swimming teachers or pools in Geneva.

I'm not a swimm teacher, but I'd recommend you check what kind of diploma/certificate and insurance you need if you want to give swimm lessons (be carefull !!!).
Many pools/schools require a "brevet de sauvetage" (sort of "rescue certificate"). Here is a place to ask for that: http://www.slrg.ch/fr.html

Exchange some swimm lessons for one of our french/german/italian languages ??

Re: English speaking swimming teachers or pools in Geneva.

Thanks for the advice and the link. This is definitely a qualification I will apply for before I consider teaching in Geneva.

Re: English speaking swimming teachers or pools in Geneva.

If you are able to drive 20 mins out of Geneva to Chéserex, this is where my daughter has lessons..

They have many classes, groups, individual, all ages, hence many different teachers. Our kids teacher speaks plenty english for what's required. I imagine the others (I've seen more than a dozen teachers around) speak varying levels too.

Re: English speaking swimming teachers or pools in Geneva.

Hello.

I am interested to take private swimming lessons for my daughter who is 16 months old every Wednesday afternoon. We live in CH 1244 Choulex and have an indoor pool in our residence. Do you think you could help somehow?

Thank you in advance for your reply
