Sarah Groenewald

Sarah GrownewaldMy name is Sarah Groenewald (nee Jonsson) and I have always had a love for the water. I started my swimming career at the age of 2 and have enjoyed many achievements since then, from breaking my first school backstroke record to swimming my first Midmar mile at the age of 10 in 30 minutes. I swam competitively for Parktown High School for Girls where I obtained my half colours in swimming.

After school, I qualified in sports massage and aromatherapy. By chance one of my massage clients asked me if I was able to correct her daughter's stroke so she could take part in her school galas and her husband wanted to learn to swim. This is where my swimming teaching and coaching career began.

Nonkululeko Mngadi

IMG 8606 LargeMy name is Nonkululeko Mngadi. I began swimming at a very tender age of five and competed in numerous Level 1 galas.

My passion for teaching started when I joined the Learn to Swim (LTS) outreach programme coordinated by Central Gauteng Aquatics (CGA) in partnership with Swimming South Africa (SSA). Within the programme I dealt with physically challenged learners from different schools which made a huge impact in my life and how I view certain things. Working with kids brought me so much joy and passion for the sport simply because they are always eager to learn and their enthusiasm is very contagious.
