I love coaching and working with younger children to lay the foundation for water confidence and stroke development.

Natasha has over 25 years of experience in swimming and coaching.  She was actively involved in Surf Lifesaving and Waterpolo growing up in New Zealand after a childhood of pool swimming.

Her love of swimming lead to coaching work through University where she graduated from PE college with a specialized focus on water sports.

Natasha has worked independently for various companies in Dubai before starting her own swim school in 2011.  She sold the business seven years later to spend more time with her family, however the pull of coaching has led her to working at Urban Swim Academy.

She believes the younger years are instrumental in developing a love of water and safety.  With the correct guidance, young children show the largest skill development.
