  • positive review  Should be the 5 Star Swimming Academy 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. I can’t recommend Will highly enough. He is an outstanding coach who has built a good team around him. I have swam laps beside his classes for years and have watched how he has transformed countless nervous children into confident swimmers who clearly love their lessons. He and his team build a great relationship with children and parents which just inspires confidence. The squad push and cajole and make lessons seem great fun getting the best out of the children. My youngest benefitted enormously from his coaching and he encouraged her into club swimming. She still talks about him and he asks after her 5 years since she stopped lessons. He’s just that sort of genuine friendly caring person who is really committed to, and interested in, all his pupils. Even as a strong swimmer myself, I’ve had lessons to improve my technique from him. I have to say that it’s hard work. You go in thinking Im not bad, he tells you are just that. Not bad. Then also points out through a few exercises that you are not good and need to improve and then he makes sure you do!!! If you are a serious swimmer you’ll get worked as hard as you want and beyond 🥵. But that’s really what you want. I’ve watched him with adult beginners and improvers although much less often. He shows lots of patience, encouragement and they all seem to leave the pool smiling every week. With them he seems to just sense the right support and pace for them as individuals. This seems important to me. Im not sure how busy he is but if he’s got a waiting list it’s worth waiting. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

We are so proud of the feedback we receive, as the comments empathises what we do on a daily basis, as Walt Disney once quoted:


Whatever you do, do it well. Do it so well that when people see you do it, they will want to come back and see you do it again, and they will want to bring others and show them how well you do what you do.
