Desert Sport Services (DSS) was established in January 2007 by our current managing partner, Lisa Hancox. Our program is designed for all ages and abilities with over 200 classes operating across Dubai from Uptown Mirdif to Bur Dubai to Jebel Ali. The swim program includes parent & baby and pre-school, learn-to-swim, stroke development and a competitive swim squad. We also have a full teen & adult program including fitness sessions.
At DSS, we start children learning to swim independently in swim lessons once they reach age 3. At this age the children learn about water safety & confidence as well as swimming. Sessions include floating, breathing & kicking to help them gain a better feel for the water. These are the fundamental movements which will be used throughout the swimming program.
We run a variety of courses including Swimming Teachers Association (STA) Instructor courses, lifesaving courses and First Aid Courses – these are scheduled as required.
