"My son had a 1-2-1 crash course with Sandra to improve his stroke. In a few months he had not only improved his technique but improved his speed to give him the confidence he needed. Thankyou Sandra "

"My son has learnt to swim with Sandra (and the team) from being afraid of water as a toddler at Copmanthorpe right through to now completing his Gold swimming badge at Arch Bishops. They have worked hard with Patrick pushing him when needed and equal measures of reward and praise, whilst also keen it fun and being very patient. We could not have picked a better team, he looks forward to swimming every week and we are all sad that it is about to finish, Thankyou so much for your support and dedication we will greatly miss our weekly lessons "
