Rachel Apted


Rachel decided that a career change was on the cards and, with her passion for teaching children and her love of all things aquatic, Swim Teaching seemed to be the perfect match.  Previously working as a teacher’s assistant at a local Primary School, Rachel’s naturally bubbly personality and firm but fair approach to classes will make her a winner.  Rachel has three children and spends her spare time chasing them around.

Elia Moussally


Elia originates from Syria where he was both a competitive swimmer and coach to a local team.  He works for an NBN / Internet company weekdays, but his passion is swimming and this is obvious when you watch him at work with the kids.  His classes are full of great tips, inspirational corrections and loads of fun.  We are so happy to welcome him to our team.

Georgina Ransley


Georgina was a member of Jodi’s first squad and has been hanging around the pool for a long time now.  These days she’s Nursing in Queenstown, but if she gets the chance to jump in and teach, she’s first on the list.

Jenny is mostly coaching these days but when we put out the call for assistance, she’s often quick to jump right back in.
