Swimming Testimonial

I recently completed a 5 day swim class for beginners in the TCD pool. The class was mixed shape, size and ability, and a great group of people.

Though there was a range of ability in the group, classes were inclusive, instructive, enjoyable, and allowed every individual to progress and develop within a short time frame while having at least a little fun.

The teaching style was informative, and fun while coaxing people out of their comfort zones, or bad habits.

Having been involved in club sports in the UK that cater to performance athletes at one end of the spectrum, to beginners, children, or veterans at the other, I think the structure of this class is spot on, with delivery from a skilled teacher.
