The swimming, as we know it, is an ideal sport for development of children. Although water is a fun and safe environment it is also a playground which presents a few risks which anyone should learn to master.
In the summer time, by nice weather, the lessons take place in Puidoux's outdoor swimming pool. In case of gloomy weather, the lessons will be provided in the "Hotel du Signal". In winter time the courses take place in Vevey or Puidoux. They are provided by an experimented instructor "Jeunesse et sports". Adults are welcome too.
