I will be on maternity leave from mid-February, until then only a few private lessons are possible.
Wings that make you fly over water/are made from water = Waterwings
(In German: Wasserflügel)
Wings that make you float on water = Waterwings
(In German: Schwimmflügel)
'Waterwings' would be called 'swimwings' if translated literally from German! This is where the inspiration for our swim school mottos 'WaterWings - fly don't float!' and 'WaterWings - flieg übers Wasser'! comes from.
Small touches - big effect!
Sometimes small touches make a big difference - especially when learning to swim or how we call it: 'Flying over water!'.
An example of this? Check out our two videos below: A small touch- but BIG impact!
And? Noticed the small touch with the BIG impact?
And yes - sometimes decisions are overrated! One or the other? Just go for both! This applies to our swimming courses and swim trainings too!
Our WaterWings swim training is often about the small touches: subtleties!
They make you fly almost weightlessly over the water while looking effortless - BUT it takes decades of experience, passion and an 'obsession' for every little touch and detail!

There are only a few (really veeeeery few!) things Verena loves more than swimming and water - actually only her family!
Numerous state championship titles, world championship titles and European record in the Masters have accumulated over the years.
But as a full-blooded educator, there is one thing she loves even more and can do insanely well: Teaching others something - especially one thing: How to fly over water!
That's why, in addition to WaterWings, she has also been teaching for many years at the USI (Universitäts-Sportinstitut-Innsbruck), formerly the Volkshochschule Innsbruck and as a trainer for state swimming instructors. She is a trainer at the Red Snappers swimming club and formerly WSV Imst.
WaterWings - the name of my swimming school was given to me by my little daughter Ella. When she saw a swimming video of me, she said: 'Mummy, you're flying over the water! Can I do that too?' And her little arms were already paddling through the air in dolphin style.
At that moment it was clear to me - I have to go back into the water - but this time together with other people! And so my swimming school WaterWings was born!
But you know how it is with us Tyroleans - if we do something - better for real!
My swimming lessons and swim trainings are always well planned and at the same time they are individually adapted to the situation and condition of my swimmers. That is exactly the attraction of every single lesson - to find a way for every swimmer to reach their goal, because improving technique and swimming styles is my passion! I want this passion to spill over to you. 'Can I do it too?' Yes - I am convinced of it! How far can you get? Let's find out! Get involved and see what you are made of.
Verena's art of teaching someone how to fly over the water is not only to make it look effortless, to pay attention to every little detail, but:
SHE REJOICES IN EVERY METRE, WITH EVERY SMILE AND WITH EVERY SUCCESS, NO MATTER HOW SMALL - THIS IS HOW PURE SWIMMING PASSION AND MOTIVATION IS CREATED!

- Prerequisite: Good swimming skills (breaststroke) and the willingness to put your head under water/dive.
- For whom? For all ...

Learn to fly over the water like Verena - a big wish of many swimmers! In the pool or in the sea, when a fish becomes a bird, the water just flies by!
