ABOUT US

Hi there!
We are Marlin Swim Academy.

Formerly Kelly MacDonald Fitness, Marlin Swim Academy made a huge splash entering the aquatic realm in 2022! After operating for 10 years, it was time to make a change and establish a brand that accurately represented our passion.​

Whether you're a parent of young children, a non-swimmer yourself, a new resident of Canada, or you just moved to a house with a pool, Marlin Swim Academy has instructors ready for you! 

I take enormous pride in providing a life-saving service to the people in my community. As Canadians, we are privileged to have access to so much water and it is our responsibility to teach our children to have fun while respecting its dangers.

Being able to find a team of like-minded individuals with a passion for swimming and teaching was a blessing and I am thrilled to be expanding this team every year!

Not only does Marlin Swim Academy develop strong swimmers but we also develop strong instructors. I am so proud to be able to take on junior instructors and have them go through a mentorship program unlike any other in this industry!

-Kelly MacDonald

What make us unique
WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE?

Marlin Swim Academy will always have our swimmers at the forefront of our business. All team members are aquatic professionals and all levels of our leadership team are also instructors!

We keep our class sizes exceptionally small. This allows us to ensure each swimmer gets adequate practice time and 1:1 feedback from the instructor.

3:1 for Preschool and Swimmer 1-3

5:1 for Swimmer 4-9

Our senior instructors and leadership team have an average of 20 years' experience teaching swimming lessons EACH! This is a grant total of over 116 years of experience.

We welcome all ages and all abilities! 

What Our Clients Say

"Kandice was amazing and [our child] was super excited. Thanks for coordinating this and hiring such supportive staff!"
