“Teaming up with Institute of Swimming means absolute assurance that all our teachers receive the right qualifications to start their journey, as well as regular training and development to continually improve, whether that’s instructing a parent and baby session, a school swimming lesson or our national performance squads. We look forward with confidence to working with the Institute of Swimming, knowing we share a commitment to high quality outcomes for all those involved in swimming in Warrington.”
