It is never too late to discover wonder of the ocean


From Zero to hero is a specialised aquatics education initiative program focuses on adult immigrants who don’t know how to swim to train them to become a competitive water-sport player. Founded by @Nadia Azizabadi.

It is specifically tailored to adults who have not previously had the opportunity to learn to swim or simply lack water confidence.

From Zero to Hero aims to nurture a lifelong love of the water, go beyond teaching technique and teach participants to get involved in the community by participating in Aquatic sports and to gain confidence by learning the safety in and around the water. Participant will develop self confidence and build on their self esteem.

Your swim skills would be assessed in the first session and a personal plan would be given to you based on your swim ability to train you step by step to be prepared to swim confidently by week ten.


As with any new skill, reinforcement is crucial and so all participants will be given discounted pool access outside their lesson times to practice newly learnt skills.

Whatever your choice is, “From Zero to Hero” is here to support you in a step by step guideline. Call or message us today to find out more.


Nadia is an Accredited Austswim instructor, National team player for Tasmanian underwater rugby women team, underwater hockey player and scuba dive master and scientific diver. She wants to help people become the hero of their yesterday and recently found this in assisting them to get to know about water sports through a project named: “From Zero to hero”. She strongly believes that it’s not about having more migrants, it’s about having happy and healthy migrants both physically and mentally. In her opinion Sport plays an important role in new arrival migrant’s life and swimming and water related sport are just a relief in a daily stressful life of an immigrant. 

Nadia could barely swam when she first came to Australia and deep part of the pool was a nightmare for her but she trained herself everyday, faced discriminations and wasted too much time going in wrong paths and spent too much money until she discovered the steps toward her goals. You don’t have to face all these difficulties as she has a step by step program which was examined before and she has the same background in learning as an adult migrant so she understands your difficulties.

If you can not find her swimming in the pool, she would be underwater training underwater rugby or at the beach planning her next scuba or free dive.

Let us show you how to be the HERO of your yesterday. Start today!



From Zero to Hero was founded by Nadia Azizabadi on February 2017. The first round of participants was initiated on March 2018 in partnership with Migrant Resource Centre Tasmania to deliver the Multicultural Youth (MY) Swim to Sport program, funded under the Healthy Tasmania Community Innovations Grants. The program supported young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds learn to swim and become involved in water sports and local swimming clubs. Twenty people aged 15 to 25 years completed the first 15 week program with Nadia. Since then various group programs were run across Tasmania.

Nadia now works with Tasmanian Divers Group to make this program available to everyone who wants to explore the underwater world and develop their aquatic skills to take advantage of the beautiful coastline we love to explore in Tasmania
