If you ask an individual who does not have children, what is important to them, most of them will answer personal development, including education, hobbies, and health-enhancing activities. If you ask any parent what is important to them, they will surely tell you their children. But nowadays, even for parents, it is necessary to take care of themselves, we have decided to combine both themes in Swim Smooth. We are very pleased to invite both people, with and without children, to spend their sporting weekend together in cosy pension Volt in Jablonec nad Nisou in the foothils of Jizera Mointains.
Our goal is to allow both those with and without children to enjoy common experience that they do not get anywhere else and which allows them to share the joy of movement whilst learning new skills. Lessons are prepared under the guidance of the head coach and licensed coach of the Swim Smooth methodology, Gabriela, which also includes a professional video analysis. For the duration of your training, the children will be in the hands of an experienced trainer who will guide them through a variety of entertaining sporting activities, loosely linked to the story of the legendary film "How to Drown Dr. Mráček or the End of Watermen in Bohemia." ("Jak utopit dr. Mráčka aneb konec vodníků v Čechách.").
Come and progress with your swimming, meet interesting new faces that you would not otherwise meet, enjoy the fun with both adults and their children and relax at the end of a busy year in a beautiful setting. Looking forward to meeting you!

"How to drown Dr. Mráček or the End of Watermen in Bohemia" ("Jak utopit Dr. Mráčka aneb Konec vodníků v Čechách")
The story of Dr. Mráček, a housing consultant who falls in love with water woman Jana, is known to every one of us. A lot of people do not know that the story of the Wasserman family does not end with the closing captions. Mr. Wasserman does not give up so easily and together with his wife he is able to return among the watermen. They are after Dr. Mráček and Jana and it will be up to you to help protect the waterman family using your swimming skills. We look forward to you!
