Swimming for Special Needs Children
Lize Kruger, a specialized Water Therapist, presents lessons for children with special needs. With specialized, individual focused attention from the instructors these kids learn much faster than in larger groups. They will develop a feeling of accomplishment when mastering certain strokes in the water. An excellent example of this is one of our ex-swimmers (Jan-Herman Els) who currently holds 11 world records in his age group.
He started off with us not being able to walk from the one side of the pool to the other side. Within three years his mastered all the swimming strokes and started to participate in competitive events. He is currently the SA Champ in several events in his age group and represents his country regularly at international level. We fed him through the system where he is now a member of TUKS Swimming Club.
