Why Swim with Us?

Low Swimmer to Instructor Ratios

Quite simply put:

our group lesson ratios can’t be beat!


In Starter Swimmer there is a 3 swimmer to 1 instructor ratio.

In Swimmer 1, 2 and 3 there is a 4 swimmer to 1 instructor ratio.

In Swimmer 4, 5 and 6 there is a 6 swimmer to 1 instructor ratio.

In Toddler & Me classes there is an 8 to 1 swimmer/caretaker to instructor ratio.


In addition to the above, there is one out-of-water instructor for every two classes. This lowers the ratios even further and allows for better observation and direction of the class.


We believe that to learn effectively, swimmers must have intense focus and constant repetition of skills. This can ONLY happen if the students to instructor ratios are low.  The amount of time that your child is actually swimming and not standing around is substantially longer with Excel than with ANY other program in the city.

What our Clients Say;

"It has been the most positive experience for my children.  They loved it so much that we got our neighbours involved and our kids are now taking lessons together."

Mrs. Foote

“My two younger boys have gone through the Lesson Program & are now in the Excel Swim Team program. With our older girls entering in the London Aquatic Club, we see a seamless continuation of instruction and coaching.  We know our boys will follow in their footsteps”

M. Heisz

“We carpool together with friends and Excel has always been able to fit all our 11 kids in at the same time on the same day… that is no easy task!”
