Everyone claims to be the best, so how are we different?
It is not too respectful to say that we are better than others, so we are just going to tell you our pros and differences. The right to make the conclusions is yours!
Our story began in 2015 when our co-founder coaches decided to create own school with a “better” teaching system based on their own teaching experience in other swimming clubs.
We implemented our most important conditions:
It was great event in the center of Stockholm, full of positive and friendly atmosphere. And for our club it was amazing team building opportunity. Our girls swam 1609m distance.
Our coaches are the best, even though 2 of them were on holidays and couldn’t attend. And the biggest surprise was 10th place of our Saima in the race. Congratulations! We are so proud. But also proud of Anna and Hoyi of course.
As you may know, we are working in Haga Health Club, which is awesome SPA in Radisson Blue Hotel.
So we are real fans of the area.
And we are here to tell you more about our wonderful neighborhood.
Part of the Royal National City Park, the lush Haga Park (or just Haga) is situated just north of Stockholm in the suburb of Solna. Founded by the monarch Gustav III in 1780-1797, Haga is Sweden’s foremost example of an English landscape park, and one of Sweeden’s most popular recreational areas. It’s also the site of many historical landmarks.
We talk so much about swimming in Stockholm, but one of the side of swimming is joyful bathing in Stockholm.

When people swim together, they can help each other or go for help in case of an emergency.
