Each individual membership includes a missed lesson allowance of up to 4 lessons per year. This means that for any lesson missed (up to a maximum of 4) your direct debit will be reduced to reflect the number of class(es) you will not attend.

This allowance is primarily for lessons you cannot attend due to school and nursery activities and/or sports events, holidays and unforeseen circumstances. For lessons missed due to medical reasons, please refer to our illness clause no.18 within our terms and conditions.

  • Laura Sevenus was a South African national competitive swimmer in the 60’s. She was one of five South Africans chosen to tour with the American Water Follies as a synchronized swimmer, thus changing her amateur status.

    In 1964, her professional career began when she assisted the South African team coach training beginners, and later established her first private swim school. Her understanding of parent and children’s needs led to the creation of a purpose-designed facility for teaching swimming in Cape Town, this is where she developed what is now the Sevenus Swimming Method®.

    She has contributed her evolving insight and expertise to various working groups in South Africa, Sweden, Germany and the UK and has been instrumental in defining swim teaching standards in South Africa. She is also a certified aquarobics instructor and Watsu® practitioner.
