Course testimonials:

  • said: Overall it was enjoyable yet I wasn't keen on the rotation of instructors as it meant you didn't progress very far as they each had their own style and priorities. I also believe I attended more then 36%

  • said: I achieved my aim of being able to swim “properly” with tutor's encouragement and helpful tips.

  • said: Course was very efficient. Problem was timing and location not the fault of the course. Better option for me is Victoria Park City way at the weekend, more realistic than trying to get there after work.

  • said: Great instructor with some good practical tips. Always responsive and encouraging

  • said: Very practical sessions on improving swimming techniques & efficiency. We had a few different instructors - and that wasn't a bad thing: you get a slightly different perspective on the art/craft of swimming from each. I'd recommend the course to anyone wanting to improve their swimming skills.
