Improving your swimming ability is not just important for children, there is a growing interest in "Being a Better Swimmer" with adults too. I think we probably all have horror stories of how we were pushed into a pool as a child, or lost our footing while in the pool, or any one of a hundred different stories that affected our enjoyment of the water. For a lot of adults that fear has stayed with them through their entire lives, but that doesn't mean that this is the way it has to stay. A growing number of adults are attending sessions to become better swimmers, to enable them to enjoy time with their children/grandchildren on holiday, to improve their health and fitness or just as a personal challenge to do something they are not able to do at the moment. It is NEVER too late to improve your swimming ability, for more information click on the links below from the ASA - Amateur Swimming Association (National Governing Body for Swimming):
