We use the Swimming Teachers Association scheme which leads pupils through the stages from non – swimmer to advanced, rewarding them with badges and certificates as they pass the skills and stroke requirements within each stage. This scheme also includes personal survival and Life Saving skills which are essential for anyone who goes in or near water.
There are separate male and female group changing rooms and shower facilities with toilets in both changing rooms.
About the Proprietor
I have had a long and successful competitive career myself, predominantly in swimming but also in Diving, Synchronised Swimming, Water Polo and Speed Life Saving. I have never wanted to leave the aquatic life behind me.
My teaching and coaching began at Maidstone Swimming Club whist I was competing and continued after I retired from the competitive world to have a family.
Over the years I have also run numerous ASA and STA Swimming Teacher Training courses and have trained many of the teachers both in local Authority Schools and private swim Schools that are teaching today.
Several staff members have come from a competitive background and these are complemented by staff who are equally keen to see pupils enjoy and flourish in the pool environment. All the teachers have very diverse backgrounds which as a team brings a wealth of different strengths and styles to the Swim School.
