Hi! My name is Adam, I am the President & Founder of MIS. My love for swimming started at a very young age .. we grew up with a pool at home and my siblings and I were always in the water. As of 9 years old every summer we were involved in the summer pool scene and this is where my passion for swimming really grew. From swim lessons to swim team water polo leadership events .. working at a pool was all I ever wanted. Since 16 I have never stopped teaching swim lessons .. and the sport swimming has taught me so much about passion positivity and hard work.
Founding the MIS has always been my greatest accomplishment and my greatest learning experience. I am grateful to be surrounded by an amazing team of instructors coaches lifeguards and teachers. I have grown as a person for the better thanks to the sport of swimming and its great community.

My teaching philosophy centres around comfort in the water and working through fear by breaking skills down into managable steps. Let’s work together to reach your goals for yourself or your child and have fun along the way!

Bonjour! Je m’appelle Maïna Maud depuis mon enfance je suis passionnée pour la natation! J’ai été 8 ans dans une équipe compétitive de natation et je suis devenue monitrice de natation pour que les enfants aiment autant l’eau et la natation que moi 🙂 Je souhaite que les enfants développe des bonnes compétences en natation tout en s’amusant!

Here’s a little about me! I’m 20 years old and I have a huge passion for kids and swimming. I started to swim since I was just 5 years old and I’ve been in love with the sport ever since. I swam competitively until I graduated high school and then decided to pass on my knowledge an experience to young kids at summer pools. This really allowed me to find my passion to teach kids and be able to be make it as enjoyable and efficient as possible. That’s when I started working for MIS and have been since Fall 2017. I would love to get the chance to pass on my love and passion for swimming to your kids and help them develop and improve all their skills so they can become great swimmers of their own!

Swimming is my passion that I love to bring to others through teaching.

My name is Mary and I have worked as a lifeguard. I am consistent reliable and patient. I try to find creative teaching methods to adapt to every single swimmer. See you at the pool!

Hi there

My name is Maryam and I am incredibly passionate about teaching children the wonders of swimming!

As a swimming instructor I firmly believe that learning to swim at a young age is not only a valuable skill but also a fun and exciting adventure:) I have been working with kids in the water for 8 years and it brings me immense joy to witness their growth and progress.

My approach to teaching young swimmers revolves around creating a safe nurturing and enjoyable environment. I understand that each child is unique with their own pace of learning and individual needs. Therefore I tailor my lessons to accommodate their abilities and make sure they feel comfortable and supported every step of the way.

I can’t wait to meet your little swimmer and embark on this exciting aquatic adventure!

My name is Maryloo Hogan. I love doing sports (swimming surfing baseball judo and flag football) and I love walking my dogs in the woods. My favourite color is blue and I love animals!

The water has and will always take up such a important part of my life since I grew up spending my summers by the lake at my cottage.

I started swimming when I was two years old. I started doing swim lessons with MIS when I was 4 and stayed with that same instructor for 10 years. Now I’m a swim instructor and still carry that same lovely passion and respect for the water.

When I took MIS swimming lessons it was always the highlight of my week and my instructor had such a positive impact on me. I hope to pay in forward and have that same effect on someone else! Have a great day! I hope to see you by the pool! 🙂

Hello my name is Maurizio . I am a 17 yr old Community Recreation student at Dawson College. I’m also a competitive swimmer at the Dorval Swim Club. I have a ton of passion for swimming. For me it is so beneficial in so many ways and everyone can have a fun experience swimming. I believe swimming improves not only your physical strength but also your stamina and even your health in general.

Hi I’m Maya! I’m thrilled to join my passion for swimming with my extensive experience in working with children. I have loved swimming ever since I was 5 years old. I’m so excited to bring my love for swimming and my experience working with children to MIS. Some of my favorite activities include arts and crafts skiing and of course swimming! My favourite disney princess is Ariel from the little mermaid!

Je suis Mégan une voyageuse passionnée dont le cœur bat au rythme des vagues. Mon aventure aquatique a débuté dans ma jeunesse en tant que nageuse de compétition là où chaque coup de bras était une symphonie dans l’eau.

Forte de plus de 7 ans d’expérience en tant que monitrice de natation chaque instant m’a permis de grandir et d’affiner ma passion.
Mon engagement envers l’enseignement de la natation va au-delà des simples leçons. C’est une aventure partagée une exploration joyeuse de l’eau et de ses mystères.
Je suis impatiente de partager cette passion avec vous et vos petits nageurs en offrant des cours enrichissants dans lesquels l’épanouissement est au rendez-vous.

Prêts à plonger dans cette expérience aquatique ensemble ?

Hi! My name is Melania Borgeaud LeBlanc and I’m 18 years old. I have been swimming during the summer since I was 6 years old. I also have been dancing for 12 years. I am currently a cégep student studying in sciences at Gérald Godin. I have worked at a summer pool for 3 years now and taught lessons to many kids. I hope to see you this session!

My name is Mia Ortaaslan
I have been swimming for as long as I can remember I started by swimming every single day of the summer in my backyard to competitive swimming and high level waterpolo. Teaching kids how to swim became a big part of me because one of my baby cousins almost drowned and I made it my mission to teach them that learning how to swim saves lives. Swimming is fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My bubbly personality connects well with kids to make them open up to me. Funny enough I thought my dog how to swim and now he does laps.

Bonjour mon nom est Milan!

J’ai eu mon premier contact avec l’eau à l’âge de 6 Mois dans le cadre d’une expérience de bébé nageur.
Par la suite après des formations et des compétitions cette passion m’a amené à vouloir accompagner les gens afin qu’ils se sentent en sécurité dans l’eau.
J’ai hâte de partager ma passion avec toi 😉

A bientôt!

J’adore beaucoup également les bandes-dessinées et les jeux vidéos ! On pourra surement trouver un point en commun. Au plaisir de collaborer avec vous pour rendre vos enfants des véritables poissons !

J’ai 16 ans et j’ai toujours aimé la natation!
Depuis que j’ai 2 ans je fait des cours. J’ai toujours voulu être a la place du sauveteur sur la chaise. Ensuite j’ai appris que devenir moniteur c’etais encore plus cool. J’ai donc essayer d’en apprendre plus avec mes autres amis qui eux ont leur formation. J’adore travailler avec les enfants et leur apprendre des nouvelles choses!

Hi! I’m Rio:) I have been a swimming instructor since 2017 and before that I was part of a competitive swim team for 10 years. Now I spend my time either teaching new instructors how to teach or studying at university! I specialize in teaching non-swimmers how to swim independently and once they’re more advanced teaching the more technical aspects of the four strokes. My favourite swim is butterfly but I will make sure to make you a well-rounded swimmer able to brave any circumstance! Hope to see you in the pool:)

Salut! Je m’appelle Riyad et j’ai 19 ans. Je suis moniteur de natation et j’adore ce que je fais! Un fait étonnant à propos de moi est que la première fois que je me suis inscrit à des cours de natation j’avais 6 ans et je n’étais pas un grand fan du milieu aquatique. J’aurais aimé avoir à ce temps-là un moniteur compréhensif et patient pour m’aider pendant mes cours. C’est ce qui m’a justement encouragé à devenir ce que je suis aujourd’hui je suis là pour donner (ou redonner) goût à la nage à mes clients et je donnerais mon 101% pour y parvenir!

Au plaisir de nager avec vous
