Philosophy Our approach to swimming is simple; we don’t believe there is any one approach that is perfect for everyone. We all have different injury, lifestyle, occupational and sporting influences and backgrounds that will shape the way we approach our swimming and will influence the way we swim. Our goal is to listen to your swimming needs and wants, explore the best way for you to learn and then to provide a quality and substantive swimming experience, one that you can take away and apply over and over to ensure you get the best return from your swim lesson. This may involve some or all of the following- A quality pre swim assessment- Swim anaylsis /filmed swim technique- Video review- Instructor in water demonstration- Swim theory discussion- Follow up e-mail summary of the lesson
 Our Pool We are very lucky to have access to modern private 12M swim flume, our ‘RealSwim Center’. This facility allows you to learn without the distraction or stress of public observation. The video feedback facilities allow you to observe your swimming immediately so that learning and adaption can be made during the lesson.
