Quality Time With The Family

We all have different reasons for getting in the pool. Read why Simon has decided to make a Big Splash with his family. If you are like him then choose from the options below to make your own splash.


"In our family everyone’s always complaining that I’m a workaholic! We just needed one fun thing we could all do together. The kids chose swimming!

"I was a bit hesitant at first. But I have got to admit it’s a great laugh. We play loads of games, and the kids try to beat me across a width every time we go. It won’t be long before they can do it. I’d better keep practicing.

"Also, going swimming has brought us closer together and it has brought back all those great childhood memories of splashing about in the pool.

"Now I feel confident my own children will share similar memories when they are older. What a fantastic inheritance."

Are any of these statements you?

  • I want to swim for fun with my kids.
  • I’ve been inspired to spend more time with the kids.
  • I’m going to give my kids happy memories of family swims
  • It would be great to train as a family

It's me, what's next?
