Swimming with Linzi

Swimming with Linzi is all about having fun in a safe environment, from gaining water confidence to great stroke technique.

I offer baby, toddler and Pre-school lessons, 4 weeks – 4 years of age at Carr Junior School in Acomb, York on Monday, Thursday and Friday mornings. It is a small pool and warm at 31 degrees, perfect for little ones!
I also run classes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for children 2 -10 years at Robert Wilkinson School, Strensall, York, from 3.30-6.30 pm.
When children are confident enough, they can go in by themselves without their primary caregiver. This is a natural progression and one where there’s no age limit. The important thing here is, it’s when the child is ready.
Classes are fun based and relaxed with only 7 children in each class. With the whole pool to ourselves, children really enjoy their lessons and thrive learning to swim. I get to know all the children individually and adapt my teaching accordingly. There is only 1 class running at a time so little distraction from other swimmers.
With over 10 years teaching experience, including my own 3 children, I am fully qualified STA Swimming Instructor, STA baby and pre-school teacher, RLSS lifesaving and recently completed Level 3 Diploma in Aquatic Teaching for Baby and Pre-school. Do check out my recommendations on Facebook!
