We DSA truly believes it is possible for a young babies as young as 2 weeks old to be taught skills that will give them a fighting chance in the event of an accident. Early swimming lessons have been documented to potentially increase a child’s mental capacity, intelligence and concentration while also having positive effects on social, emotional and physical development. We are raising a new generation of fun-loving water sports enthusiasts by offering a wide range of programs and activities to meet the ever-changing demand in Malaysia. We inspire to both the very young and the young-at-heart.
