Simply the best lessons



Hi, my name is Vladimir Ushakov and I would like to welcome you to ISWIM school. 

My 30 years of international experience in professional water polo and competitive swimming in collaboration with our highly experienced coaching staff let us created one of the most effective lessons ever.

We have a different approach to teaching than anything you have tried before. Our unique ISWIM methodology is suitable for people of all abilities and skill levels.

After the first lesson, you will see tremendous progress.

We do not pass the levels, we teach how to become a very confident swimmer with the correct technique in a short amount of time.

Our goal is to develop efficient strokes so that our swimmers are well prepared for recreational and/or competitive swimming and other water sports. We strive to ensure that all our students have a highly developed understanding of the aquatic environment and water safety.

In our school, you can choose between small group and private lessons for all ages from 3 years old.
