Harold's Reviews

Couldn't have asked for a better swimming coach in Abu Dhabi!

Harold is teaching my four year old twin girls how to swim and we couldn’t have asked for a better instructor! The girls have improved so quickly and I owe that to Harold’s patience and passion for teaching kids how to swim. My girls instantly got along with Harold, trusted him and were fearless! I could not believe how quickly they learnt how to swim underwater! They always look forward to swimming class with Harold so if you are looking for an instructor who is friendly with kids, trustworthy, and punctual Harold is your guy!
