Got a Question? Ask the Deck Supervisor

SwimSafer award

If you have a question relating to your child’s swimming lessons there is always someone on hand who can help.

We know it’s difficult to speak to an instructor during or in between lessons. There never seems to be enough time. Due to this there is always a Deck Supervisor on hand to answer any questions relating to your child and their swimming lessons.
