The Swimming SA project, which is aimed at identifying schools as strategic partners in driving Mass Participation and High Performance programmes throughout the country, has already had great success with the first High Performance Academy launched in June of 2019 at the Tyger Valley College in Cape Town.

The Swimming South Africa partnership with Maragon Mooikloof High School will see the second school academy being formally established with the experienced Eugene da Ponte, coach of the school’s team and the Pretoria Aquatic Club, bringing a set of skills that will greatly benefit the Academy.

The school has a wealth of swimming talent, being named Pretoria’s Best English High School and Best Private School for two years in a row.

We look forward to your support at this exciting initiative.

Please note that there will be interview opportunities with the School and SSA officials.
