The CLeC Academy is a swimming and aquatic development venture. It exists as a way for South African Olympic swimmer, Chad Le Clos to give back to the sport of swimming. To encourage swimmers of every level and any background to learn, participate and remain in the sport for as long as possible.
By establishing venues across the country, the CLeCAcademy will achieve its vision of increasing participation and longevity in the sport of swimming. This can be done by focusing on water safety, technique, fun and enjoyment.
We are committed to teaching swimming at all levels in an exciting, creative and engaging way.

These experts have designed a unique programme, specifically for the CLeC Academy; which guarantees results and enjoyment for all swimmers.
