Dolphin Swimming Club
The Dolphin Swimming Club helps aqua-phobic adults and kids overcome their fear of water, learn to swim or improve their style, regardless of age or standard. Instructors lead the classes alongside learners in the water and adopt a professional and sympathetic approach. Life saving, water skills, diving, synchronised swimming and the ASA Bronze, Silver and Gold Challenge Awards are a more advanced but equally worthwhile option for individuals or small groups. Free parking in the area is a plus point for Sunday morning classes.
I arrived at the Dolphin Swimming Club as an adult without being able to swim even one length. I couldn't tread water and, while I wasn't exactly scared of water, I was far from comfortable in it. After 20 lessons of one-to-one training at Dolphin, and lots of practice, I had learnt three of the four main strokes (front crawl, breaststroke and backstroke) plus lots of other water skills (eg, treading water, diving in, skulling etc). These days, I swim up to 80 lengths almost everyday, but could do more if time allowed! The hardest part now is getting me out of the pool! Learning to swim changed my life and I believe it was the best money I have ever spent, or am ever likely to spend.
