Established in 1988, Swalings has taught over 25,000 children and adults to swim from all walks of life and believe anyone can learn to swim. Our teaching methodology aims to ‘break down barriers of fear and apprehension in the water’, ‘promote personal development and build confidence, improving both body and mind through swimming and coaching’, and ‘educate and develop life skills through the pursuit of excellence in swimming, lifesaving, aqua activities and water therapies in a fun, healthy and structured environment’. We are very passionate about what we do and believe that everyone can enjoy a safe and fulfilling time in any water environment given the right skills and learning.

My son was lacking in confidence when he started, but after a couple of lessons his confidence soared. He is so happy in the water and really looks forward to going each week. Well done Swalings for having patience and making my son feel totally relaxed.

‘8 weeks ago I had a three year old who wouldn’t go in a swimming pool, 7 weeks ago she joined Swalings and today I have a confident daughter who whilst on holiday this week has been in the pool enjoying herself! Thank you to Gerry and his team – I can’t wait to see her progress even further’

‘My son at age 3 came to Swalings … He is now 8 and is so confident in the water. He loves swimming under it more than on top but swims either way with style. This has become more apparent at a junior school swim class that he has had to attend as part of his curriculum recently…. Comparing him with the other 30 children in his class his swimming was amazing & top of his class!! He is confident, has style and when he lane raced against the others that were at a similar level, he won every time. I stood there as a proud mum. Thank you Swalings!!’
