Learning to swim should be as easy and enjoyable as possible for every child. Joy and engagement are essential for effective learning, so it is crucial to put the child's enjoyment and engagement first. Children are naturally curious and learn best through experience. Therefore, the aim is to motivate them intrinsically by giving them responsibility for their learning.


Every child has potential yet to be discovered, and fostering this mindset enables them to thrive and flourish during their learning process.


EasySwim continuously develops its swimming teaching methods. Innovations such as the deep-water method, the EasySwim Pro buoyancy suit, experiential learning and steering charts have become an integral part of our daily practice.


The teaching methodology is characterised by the following pillars:


Deeper Water

To optimise propulsion and resistance experiences, we consciously choose to swim in deeper water. This environment naturally improves the 'feel for water', involving almost all parts of the body, including the soles of the feet, which are crucial for propulsion in breaststroke and backstroke.


EasySwim Pro

The EasySwim Pro is the ideal and safest flotation device for children learning to swim in deeper water. This flotation suit has floats placed high on the back and chest, minimising disruption to the natural position and maximising arm movement.



To provide maximum individual learning support, create a high level of activity and increase engagement, we work in groups with short practice material blocks in each lesson.


Meaningful Practice and Goals

Practice material and objectives should be as meaningful as possible for children. Instructors create a rich learning environment during swimming lessons by starting from the child's perspective and creatively using a variety of materials and challenging practice activities.


The Swimming ABC

De  National Swimming Safety Federation (NRZ) together with the Royal Dutch Swimming Federation (KNZB) have as  goal to raise the swimming safety of people in the Netherlands to the highest level possible.


Everyone should enjoy going to the swimming pool and be able to move freely and safely in and around the water. But, when is your child safe to swim?

What can you do with which swimming diploma?

The NRZ has linked levels of swimming proficiency to National Swimming Diplomas. Your child only meets the National Swimming Safety Standard with swimming diploma C. The National Swimming Diplomas A and B are intermediate steps. These levels are in line with the Dutch infrastructure of bathing water where adults and children swim:

Swimming diploma A

The Learning Phase.   After obtaining your A diploma, you have  the skills for a swimming pools without attractions.

What is swimming safety according to the NRZ?

Being safe for swimming means that you can 'survive in and around the water and move and recreate in a safe way and have fun in Dutch water culture'. Swimming safety is determined by your child's skills in the water, what he or she is doing and the conditions. A child is safe to swim if:

Swimming skills

He or she masters swimming skills. The necessary skills are taught during swimming lessons.


Mental and physical condition

He or she is physically and mentally able to fend for themselves in the water.


It is also important that your child has confidence in himself.


Feel familiar
in the water

Your child likes to swim and he or she feels comfortable and familiar in and around the water.

It is therefore important that children enjoy coming to swimming lessons.


Surroundings and Area

The dynamics of the environment is important here (current, temperature of the water, depth,visibility of the bottom...).

Assessing the risks an important aspect. Your child is aware of possible dangers in the environment and knows how to act.

Does your son/daughter like to swim, but you are not sure what the possibilities are after obtaining the diplomas. Then the kids club offers a solution.

At the kids club, the children become acquainted with various parts of swimming such as competitive swimming, water polo and   diving, but also rescue swimming, survival swimming and swimming to music will be discussed ktoand.


The Kids Club originated from an initiative of PSV Dutch Dolphin Swimming Club in collaboration with InnoSportlab de Tongelreep and the Municipality of Eindhoven. Later there are also several springs hereassociations and volunteers joined in to provide the lessons with specialism.


The idea is to introduce the participants to the fun activities that water and moving in the water has to offer. We will introduce you to different types of sports and you will learn some techniques so that you retain the swimming technique that you have built up in swimming lessons, and do not sink into it. This will keep you swimming safe!

The idea is to cover two sports or activities per lesson. After a few weeks we will adjust this offer with two new sports / activities in order to continue to offer as many types of activities as possible. You are welcome to participate as long as you want, but if you come across a sport in the meantime that you would like to develop further, you can get in touch with the relevant association through us to take trial lessons there.


Together we build a swimming-safe environment where fun comes first!

Competitive swimming

In competitive swimming, the goal is to swim as fast as possible. It is important to swim with a good technique , you also have to be able to start and turn quickly.


Attention is therefore paid to the technique of the various strokes, including the butterfly stroke, and the children learn how to start and turn as quickly as possible.

Water polo

In water polo the emphasis is on playing together.


It is important to be able to swim and throw well, but without teamwork it will be difficult to score.



Diving is all about jumping into the water as beautifully as possible and without too much splashing.


During classes, children learn the basic skills of diving and learn to jump responsibly from the 1 and 3-meter boards.

Rescue swimming

In swimming rescue you learn how to help others in the water in a responsible way. The emergency doll and the transport of a drowning person are part of this.

In addition, you also learn to free yourself in case someone hangs around your neck.


Survival swimming

In swimming lessons, children learn the basic skills to save themselves, such as floating on an aid or climbing over a mat.

In survival swimming they go one step further, the children learn to breathe under a boat and float on their own pants. This way your child can save himself even better in the water.
