TuksSwimming Programme


The University of Pretoria places significant importance on Sport. TuksSport is the Department that is responsible for sport on campus.

Club members are serviced from the foundation phases through to Olympic / International levels.  All clubs are administered by a TuksSport manager and technically driven by a Head coach / Technical director.
Swimming is classified as a priority sport at Tuks due to the highly successful overall programme and the dynamic swimming academy (Sport school).

The TuksSport High School Swimming programme has specific developmental objectives which form the integrated long-term-athlete-development programme, unique to Tuks.

Our swimming coaches are all accredited members of the American Swim Coaches Association and the World Swim Coaches Association.
The Sport Science and Medical Unit provides scientific support and expertise to the coaches and swimmers in the Academy programme.
