Ready, set, swim!™

Aqua Essence Swim Academy is a leading swimming school focused on helping students of all ages – from infants to seniors – feel comfortable, strong, and competent in the water.

Since its launch in 2002, Aqua Essence has trained thousands of swimmers in Manitoba, under the leadership of Rishona Hyman, BA, MA, MSW.

The Academy offers a variety of program options in swimming, lifesaving, first aid, Red Cross, triathlon training and more.

Aqua Essence's 40+ teachers are guided by "Ready, Set, Swim!™", the Academy's proprietary curriculum. The program is designed to ensure that all teachers employ best practice with their students. The program ensures consistency, continuity, rigour, and fun. “Ready, Set, Swim! ™" provides a common language for students and instructors – a common language, with uncommon results.
