Ripples Swim School in Coalville


It all began unexpectedly when I found myself teaching swimming at the local school. As swim lessons disbanded, an opportunity arose, and in January 2010, Ripples Swim School emerged, welcoming 15 eager children into our lessons.

Through my experience, I've come to understand that teaching swimming goes beyond mere bubbles and splashing; it's about recognizing and catering to each individual's unique needs. Our lessons are thoughtfully tailored to suit the children's requirements on any given day, ensuring they have fun, develop water confidence, actively participate, and uplift one another.

The secret ingredients to our swim lessons consist of attentive listening, unwavering encouragement, abundant praise, all sprinkled with a generous dose of love. It is a true blessing to have Kerry McMahon by my side, sharing the same passion and devotion to the art of teaching swimming.

My ultimate dream is to enable every person to embrace swimming and wholeheartedly embrace the water, opening doors to a myriad of exciting activities and endless possibilities.
