Meet the Coach

There is a huge advancement in the science of swimming and it has reached the South African shores through Swim Smooth Coach, Jana Oosthuizen (Schoeman). As a passionate swimmer, this Gauteng based physiotherapist, specialising in sports and orthopaedic rehabilitation, asked herself the question: can there be more? The answer came through UK & Australian based swim coaching company, Swim Smooth’s slogan: “The World Needs Better Swimming”.

This set Jana on her journey to become the first Certified Swim Smooth Coach in South Africa. She has travelled to the UK & Australia over the past three (3) years in order to complete her international training. After returning from the first course in 2014, she started her own swim coaching company, Replay Video Analysis, currently known as Swim Smooth Joburg.

Jana Oosthuizen (Schoeman) graduated her degree in Physiotherapy Cum Laude from the University of Pretoria in 2009 and completed her Orthopaedic Manipulation Therapy (OMT) 1 Certificate during 2011. She was formally announced as the first Swim Smooth Coach in South Africa in July 2017.
