Wendy Figures & Debbie Colley.
Both teachers have been involved in swimming all their life. Both were competitive swimmers in their youth.
Wendy competed at National level. Debbie moved onto to play water polo at National level.
Both have been teaching swimming for many years and both have a background in swimming development or swimming lesson management.
Wendy still competes in the occasional Masters event in the pool but spends most of her time in the lake as she is both a long distance open water swimmer and a winter open water swimmer.
Both teachers have a lifelong passion for swimming. It’s more than a job as it’s important that children not just learn to swim in order to be safe but hopefully, they will enjoy swimming and continue to participate in some way for a long time after their swimming lessons.
