Swimming is classified as a priority sport at the University of Pretoria due to the successful overall programme of TuksSwimming and the dynamic of the Academy programme at TuksSport High School.

Our Academy has specific developmental objectives which form the integrated long-term athlete development. We are supported by our coaches who are all accredited members of the American Swim Coaches Association and the World Swim Coaches Association.

One of the key components of the Academy programme is that the Sport Science and Medical Unit provides scientific support and expertise to the coaches and swimmers.
