Paddlers Swim School has been established for over 19 years. Many of the children that started as nervous non swimmers and progressed through our swim scheme now swim competitively for local swimming clubs.
Our teachers are all qualified and teach in the water with the non swimmer classes which gives the children more confidence and enables the teachers to demonstrate and guide the children more easily.
Paddlers works in association with Coopers Coborn School, a Specialist Sports College, benefiting from their wealth of experience and sports knowledge. A number of our swimming teachers also teach swimming for Coopers during the school day.
Many of our teachers have been involved in swimming all their lives having swum competitively in their youth and still swim in the masters sections of local swimming clubs. The children in our classes gain from this experience and enjoy varied, well structured lessons.
