School of Splash delivers a high quality learn to swim programme in line with national standards. Being owned by a swimming club means that once your child can swim they can then progress onto competitive swimming with the same coaches. Laini Cooper aged 10 learned to swim with School of Splash aged 4 and now regularly swims competitively with the Club at a regional level. Laini’s mum comments: ‘It’s great that having learnt to swim and discovering a talent, Laini could continue with the same coaches and not have to move elsewhere to an unfamiliar Club’.
