Leadership Programs

Toronto & North York Swim School

Davina Lopez has been a swimmer her entire life. With her substantive background as a swimmer, instructor and competitive racer, she was and remains to this day, adamant that every child should master the skill of swimming. Davina founded Davina’s Swim House in 2003 with her husband Geo for the sole purpose of delivering quality swimming lessons in Toronto & North York to infants and toddlers, beginner and advanced kids, and adults in a professional, warm and comfortable setting.

At the DSH swim school, swimming lessons are taught by professionally-certified swimming instructors who are – to a person – caring, nurturing, and encouraging. Their years of swimming and instruction experience ensure an extremely safe environment for each child – our #1 priority. Each swim instructor is trained in-house with Davina’s unique hands-on and customized teaching methods which ensures that consistent and effective lessons are offered to each person learning to swim in our pools at each of our Toronto and North York locations.

When you register yourself or your child for swimming lessons, you will feel at ease knowing that you are looked after and cared for. We want you and your children to have fun learning to swim while feeling safe at the same time.

We offer convenient locations throughout North York, Toronto and the GTA.
