Do you do private lessons?

YES we do!  I often find that having a 1:1 is a great way to get over a hurdle or so work with beginners who are very anxious about entering the water.


"Before coming for swimming lessons my child would not get in a pool. Thanks to Helene he now loves the water and has gained a lot of confidence in the water as well. I am confident that he will become a stronger swimmer with his lessons. Its so good to see that each week he is becoming more and more confident."
