Our team



39 years old

After completing my training at the CREPS d’Antibes (Centre Régional d’Education Physique et du Sport), I obtained my BEESAN (Brevet d’Educateur sportif des activités nautiques) in May 2010, making me a certified swimming teacher.

Since then, I’ve had the privilege of giving swimming lessons at the Antibes municipal pool, at sea, and in private homes and villas.

Every winter for the last ten years, I’ve headed for the mountains to work as a ski instructor at the ESF in Flaine, Haute-Savoie.

I’ve always been a keen sportsman, and I’m delighted to share my passion for swimming and skiing, two activities that are particularly close to my heart.

My greatest wish is to teach, and my greatest reward is to see my pupils progress and flourish in these disciplines that inspire us.

Sébastien JOSIA

39 years old

My background is that of an “alpine mara”, swimming teacher for over 10 years, passionate about sport and teaching. I’ve flourished in a variety of fields, including professional firefighting, first-aid training, PE teaching and, of course, lifeguarding, where I spend most of my time.

For me, nothing is more rewarding than seeing the smiles and joy on the children’s faces when I teach them. My main aim is to ensure their safety while teaching them essential survival techniques.

Together, we’ll explore the aesthetics of swimming, the different codified strokes, as well as perfecting the 4 strokes. All this will be done in a friendly atmosphere where fun and games are the key words.

Nothing makes me happier than sharing my passion with my students, seeing them progress and blossom in these activities that inspire us.

I’m 24 years old and I’ve been a swimming teacher for 3 years, training at the CREPS in Antibes and alternating with the Olympic Nice Swimming club.

Since then, I’ve been working at the same club as a swimming teacher for children, teenagers and adults.
Thanks to my status as a former water polo player in ProA
I’ve had the opportunity to become a water polo coach for a competitive group for 2 years now.
Last year I was also lucky enough to make the selections and become assistant coach of the PACA U12 team for the French regional cup, with which we finished French champions.

Hello ! My name is David, I’m 25 years old and I’m a swimming instructor and sports coach.

I’ve been practising sport every day for the last 7 years: swimming, running and weight training. These activities have shaped my skills, which have earned me the BPJEPS AAN (aquatic and swimming activities) and BPJEPS AF (fitness activities) diplomas.

My most recent professional experience at the Four Seasons in Megève, a prestigious hotel, gave me the opportunity to teach private swimming and fitness lessons to a wide range of people.

However, it’s teaching children to swim that remains my main source of motivation in my work. I’m a dynamic person who listens to everyone, and I see your goal as my own.

I’ll be delighted to help you progress and achieve success in the water!

Swimming has been my sport since I was a teenager, and it was when I started out as a simple summer swimming teacher that I decided to move into teaching.

I obtained my BPJEPS AAN in 2020, at the CREPS in Bordeaux/Talence.I’ve been a seasonal worker ever since. My job takes me all over France to give swimming lessons.

From the Gers to the Landes coast and the Ile d’Oléron, teaching is where I find my motivation and fulfilment.

35 years old

My name is Raphaël, and I’ve been passionate about teaching swimming for over 6 years. With a BPJEPS AAN, I’m a dedicated and experienced teacher, ready to help your children learn to swim.

As a pedagogue, I have acquired solid experience in teaching swimming to children and adults of all levels. My main concern is to adapt my lessons to the specific needs of each learner, ensuring that they progress at their own pace while enjoying themselves in the water. My patience and good humour are essential assets that enable me to establish a relationship of trust with my students, promoting effective and enjoyable learning.

My seriousness in my work and my commitment to the safety of my students are fundamental values that I put forward in all my work. I ensure that each session takes place in a safe environment that is conducive to learning, while encouraging my students to push their limits and overcome their fears in the water.

23 years old

I trained at the CREPS in Wattignies in the north of France and obtained my BPJEPS AAN diploma in 2020, making me a fully-fledged swimming instructor.

This diploma enabled me to complete 3 seasons, and to be able to give private lessons mainly to children to help them feel more at ease in the water.

I’m currently studying to become a specialised educator, and these studies have enabled me to take care of the people I’m working with. I therefore make the link between the profession of swimming teacher and that of special education teacher, to ensure that my pupils thrive in this discipline.

Coming from a family of swimmers, I share my passion through the lessons I teach. I also work in a swimming club and take charge of a group of around fifteen children, helping them to progress in the sport at their own pace.
I also work with the “Osez l’eau” association, encouraging people with aquaphobia to overcome their fear of water.

You can count on me to transform your fears into confidence, your limits into success and your dreams of swimming into reality!
