Swimming Teachers


London, UK

I have over 25 years teaching and coaching swimming experience in Spain and London and, in conjunction with the International Sport for All Federation, have taught all ages and skill levels from babies to adults, beginners to advanced level swimmers. Additionally, I have taught aqua gym and have worked as a swimming coach in Andorra (I Swimming Campus FEN, Spanish Swimming Federation) and in Madrid (La Salle SC) and have swim management expertise after working at La Dehesa, Sport Military Club. I am officially recognized as an 'International Expert in Aquatic Activities' and 'Beach Animation' with FISpT (Sport for All Federation: FISpT Coordinator. Study Tour UK) and shared my expertise with the Commission Barcelona (1992). I was a Lecturer in 'Aquatic Fitness for Seniors', International Course in M-86, Madrid and FISpT Organizer for the '24 Hours of Senior Citizenship' in Brussels. I love swimming and teaching in equal measure! For me, the secret of teaching lies in variety, each age group and stroke offer me unique opportunities of satisfaction.

What rules do I need to know before attending the swimming pool?

Rules can be different in every swimming pool location. We strongly suggest checking the practices for the facility you choose to use before attending. Some general rules might include wearing a swimsuit, swim hat or hair tied up, use the showers before and after the swimming lesson and always listen to the lifeguards. For your safety, running, bombing, back-diving, petting, fighting or using face masks and snorkels are usually not permitted.

Can I use swimming aids or equipment? Can I buy goggles or swimwear?

You can bring your own swimming aids / equipment from home. Goggles or swimwear will be available for purchase at participating leisure centres.

What Skills Are Taught In Swimming Lessons?

Beginner swimming lessons focus on helping students get comfortable with basic water skills, such as front and back floating with their face in the water, opening their eyes under water and bobbing. Instructional flotation devices, such as kick boards, barbells and float belts, are used to help students learn to adjust to the water. After basic skills have been mastered, students move on to work toward swimming progressively longer distances. For advanced swimming lessons, we would recommend "Intensive swimming classes".

How long is a swimming session?

Between 1 and 2 hours. Kids sessions can also last between 30 minutes and one hour.

Why should my child start swimming lessons?

Swimming is such an essential life saving life skill and drowning is still one of the most common causes in accidental death in children. As well as being an important life skill, swimming is also one of the most healthy and fun activities, improving strength, stamina, flexibility and posture - keeping your child active and happy at the same time.

Is it okay to eat before a swimming session?

We recommend waiting between 20 minutes and one hour.
