 AUI swimming school

AUI Athletic Department continues to strive to be an active agent for the development of sports in Ifrane region and in Morocco in general. Thus, to help children attending school in the region of Ifrane to do a sports activity, AUI Athletic department organized swimming programs for them. Also, the department organizes swimming lessons for faculty and staff children

Swimming classes for children are an important Community development process and lead to many different outcomes: Children participating in the swimming program and developing self-esteem and confidence.  More than that, in the region of Ifrane there is a terrible lack of social activities in general, and sports activities in particular. Swimming activities might help children overcome social isolation.

We are dedicated to teaching people to be proficient, and providing children with the knowledge of confidence and safety in and around the water. Our program offers a variety of classes to meet everyone’s needs.  From these basic skills we take students from beginning stages of swimming all the way to learning all 4 strokes, freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.

Fun swimming lessons:  include a wide range of ages and abilities. This program feature a strong emphasis on fun swimming and at the same time teaches beginners how to swim. This program is mainly designed for people who are uncomfortable and anxious in deep water and want to learn how to swim and get rid of water phobia and maintain a sense of fun

Competition swimming: Advanced swimmers are ready to be introduced to the competitive aspects of swimming according to their age groups. Competitive techniques are taught to prepare the student for a competitive swim team.

Students who want to do swimming for fun even if they have good swimming techniques are advised to register in the fun swimming Programs. Every end of the semester an evaluation of students will be conducted by the school personnel who will decide if the students stay in the competition option or just go the fun swimming programs.. This program is very strict and students who will not abide by its rules will be dismissed from the program.
