Float Plus was formed in 2007 by Sandra Taylor, Karen Robertson and Robin Bredbury with the desire to provide to the children and adults in Hong Kong a comprehensive swimming programme taking advantage of their combined wealth of experience in swimming teaching and coaching. The company has grown with a strong reputation based on the solid principals of swimming as a sport for all and a necessary life-skill.

 

Programme Details

Through our comprehensive swimming program, we cater for all age groups and ability levels: babies to adults, beginners to advanced swimmers requiring technique work. We specialise in small class sizes, strong class organization, clear consistent instruction, and a logical progression of swimming skills. Best of all, we make it as fun and stress-free as possible in a comfortable and safe environment.

For babies and young children we incorporate play-based activities, games and songs to progress through a step-by-step, age-appropriate program working towards water safety, basic floating, breathing and water confidence. For older children, the program introduces and develops beginner, intermediate and advanced water skills up to stroke mechanics and competitive swimming skills.
