Certified S4S Instructors
Zoë van Straalen has three boys, Jam & Jali aged 13 (twins) and Nui aged 4. She had experienced a near drowning experience with Nui while she was supervising him. Drowning in a pool can happen so fast, so quietly. This is what led her to undertake the Self Rescue Course for her son with Swim4Survival and then become a certified Swim4Survival Instructor herself. At 4 Nui is a happy confident swimmer and has learnt the skills of survival in the water so that if an accident occurred, panic is reduced and the skills would be cognitively put into practice. It was the best decision I made for him. Zoë's training with me included over 100 hours of pool instruction including child psychology and physiology. Zoë also is licensed in CPR and First Aid.She recently trained Wesley Sneijder and Yolanthe's son Xess Xava at their home in Cannes. You can check out what they think of her on on instagram!
