co-founders & co-owners

Kaley Maksymyk and Krista Morden are the Co-Founders and Co-Owners of the H2O Academy. They met on the pool deck in 1998 when they were training as elite synchronized swimming athletes. They competed their way across Canada earning several championship titles, and eventually retired from sport in 2004.  

After many years of research and development, they created their award-winning AQUA-Lit™ Curriculum© which is exclusively used by the H2O Academy. The H2O Academy launched in 2015 in rented space 2 days/week at the Winnipeg Winter Club. They had 60 students and the 2 of them taught all the classes. 

Fast forward to today… they’ve achieved their long-term goal of building their own swim school facility! They are now operating full time, have a team of amazing, talented, and passionate staff, and thousands of incredible H2O families that they’ve had the honour of getting to know while they learn the the life skill of swimming.
