Adult Programme

FREE 12-week Beginner learn-to-swim programme for migrant domestic workers

Are you a migrant domestic worker in Hong Kong who always wanted to learn to swim, but never had the opportunity? Well now is your chance with Splash’s FREE 12-week Beginner learn-to-swim programme.

People come for swimming, but leave with confidence, improved self-esteem, new friends, life skills and much, much more. Go on, dip your toe in the water. You never know what it might lead to!


  • Splash’s learn-to swim adult programme is designed for absolute beginners, but those with some swim experience are also welcome.

  • It is primarily open to migrant domestic workers, but we also partner with NGOs that work with refugees.

  • The 12-week programme emphasises three key areas: balance and buoyancy; breath control; and calm and controlled movements.

  • You will need a swimsuit and a pair of goggles. Rashguards, swim shorts and burkinis are okay too as long as it is made from swimsuit material.

  • While the programme is free, the attendance requirements are strict and the first class is mandatory (no exceptions).

  • At the end of the programme, you will know how to be water safe with a basic introduction to freestyle and backstroke.

  • Added extras: community, laughs and a real sense of achievement!
