Lis’s Swim School, in the heart of Johannesburg Northern Suburbs, has served as a registered AQUATOTS centre since 1993. Established in 1974 for summer teaching, it has become the largest all season swim teaching facility in the area. The two enclosed pools set in a lush garden are inviting to even the most trepid of young learners. At peak season over 300 learn-to-swim pupils use the 6 x 14 metre pool, while the smaller 5.5 x 5.5 metre pool, with its unique ambience, has more than 250 infants master swimming ability the AQUATOTS Swim Program way.  

Lis, a former Olympic swimmer, with her team of instructors which includes her daughter and her son, is well equipped to offer style correction, squad training, aqua aerobics and swim lessons for adults in her swim school curriculum. Her instructors are fully qualified and well versed in their respective field of aquatics. Lis herself originally qualified as a remedial teacher excels in patience and is deeply committed to keeping abreast of developments in her field. Ask her why she is an AQUATOTS franchise owner and she will tell you that it is because of the ongoing training and support she receives as a franchisee.

Administration, supervision of the instructors and the general daily running of the swim school continues to be successfully done by Jane Williams who has worked with Lis for over a decade. Jane, who is fully qualified in her field and who has also recently accepted the position of AQUATOTS Swim Program Franchise National Secretary, adds a vibrant touch to Lis’s swim school where the message is ‘WE WELCOME ALL – BIG AND SMALL.’

Lis was awarded “For her generous contribution to the development of AQUATOTS Swim Program" at the Annual Franchise Anniversary Meeting 2004.
