Since 1993

Sarnia Sea Lions Swim School

Sarnia Sea Lions was established on 1 January 2013 in Guernsey, Channel Islands.

The aim of Sarnia Sea Lions is to promote the teaching and practice of swimming by offering the opportunity for children from 4 months old and upwards to learn to swim; to learn to swim better; and to improve general swimming fitness and water safety awareness. The Swim School also offers adult MASTERS swimming; FITness and Stoke TECHnique classes for all swimmer abilities.

Sarnia Sea Lions has established a working relationship with the Swimming Teachers’ Association (“STA”) who is a registered charity and internationally recognised organisation that currently has over 8,000 members.  The STA is the world’s largest independent swimming teaching and lifesaving organisation, and delivers the highest quality training across four key business areas – Swimming Teaching, Lifesaving, First Aid and Leisure Management.

Sarnia Sea Lions aims to maintain and foster and develop the objective of the STA, which is

“The preservation of human life by the teaching of swimming, lifesaving and survival techniques.”

The first swimming lessons commenced on 9th January 2013.

The swimmers currently partaking in swimming lessons with the Sarnia Sea Lions, range in age from approx. 4 months to over 60 years old and are of various swimming abilities – so you really are never too young or too old for us to get you swimming confidently and correctly in the water – whether it be your first time or your hundredth plus time!!

The swimming instructors are all highly experienced and offer top quality swimming lessons for all – they use various techniques and have the upmost of patience to offer – so for the ultimate nervous swimmer – to the novice swimmer – to the swimmer who wants to perfect their techniques to a better standard, the Sea Lions are able to assist you all.
