I’m pleased to say that Instructors at Cascades Leisure Centre in Tewkesbury can now deliver specialist swimming lessons for people with disabilities.
Ten members of staff from the leisure centre received intensive training to help teach children and adults with physical and learning difficulties to swim.
My Council jointly funded the £3,000 Swimming Teachers Association (STA) training, with the aim of helping the leisure centre to become more inclusive.
Thanks to this excellent training, lifeguards at Cascades now have the knowledge, experience and confidence to deliver a high standard of tuition for people of all ages with disabilities.Tthe leisure centre is already offering one to one swimming sessions, and it will hold crash course swimming lessons throughout the summer holidays.
To sign up to a one to one session, or to find out more about the crash course during summer, please contact the centre on 01684 293740 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
