About Us

Stockholm International Swimming Club is a community of expats based in Stockholm, Sweden who love swimming! We exist to provide the best learning experience possible, specifically tailored to adult beginners. We wish to share our expertise with you; and to inspire you to learn how to swim, either from scratch or improve your swimming technique.

Why choose us


We teach in English! Focus only on your swimming and not on mastering another language. Furthermore, our students and coaches come from all over the world, which makes an incredibly fun community to join.

Small groups

Our teaching methods include semi-individual coaching with low class numbers (balancing 2 coaches between a maximum of 5 students. This ratio enables SSIC to give adult beginners the personal attention and safety needed.


We help you reach your goals as fast as you can. Over the years we developed an intensive program for teaching adults how to swim from scratch over 3 weeks.
