This is Rami Bou Khodr who teaches swimming at the Hilton Hotel in Al Ain…
He runs the American Swimming Academy. He is Lebanese, and has lived in Al Ain for the last 2 years. I asked him to tell me more about himself. He said, “I am a teacher and examiner for lifeguard courses from the STA in England, which was established in 1932. With that organization I got certified to deal with children with special needs. I also have a certificate from the American Swimming Academy as a pro swimming instructor. I did my first lifeguard course in Dubai in October 2010. I have programs for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and adults.”
He added, “It doesn’t matter what your child’s swimming ability or level is, I can help with swimming coaching for children and adults and also water safety lessons for the younger children.”
He’s very passionate about starting up a swimming team/club for youngsters – and adults too – who are serious about improving their swimming, and are willing to put the energy in to hone that skill.
He offers competitive rates to both members and non-members of the Hilton.

He’s a lovely guy, and brilliant with the children – and we often see him in the water working individually with children aged as young as 3 or 4 – so if you want to know more, ring him directly on 050 673 1010.
