Learn to swim through a Holistic Approach

You will will learn to swim through a holistic teaching approach, whereby coaches aim to foster a positive attitude and recognise every achievement, large or small. Students  improve skills and fitness as they learn to swim within an uplifting environement and in addition confidence is boosted as swimming goals are reached. A new found positive attitude engendered goes beyond the pool and is in turn reflected in other aspects of life.

The school provides swimming clases for both adults and kids at different locations including: the Arlington Swimming Club in Glasgow’s West End and The Marriott Hotel in the City Centre and Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel, Dalmuir, Clydebank.
