Happy 5th Birthday to Blue Wave Swim

Blue Wave Swim School is 5 years old on Sunday 22 Feb. Hurray!

Yes, our Birthday is coming up soon! It’s hard to believe but, 5 years has gone by and we are happy to be going from strength to strength over these years.

I came up with the idea of setting up a swim school when I noticed there was a need for a swim school which could provide high quality swimming lessons both on private and group basis, for all ages and abilities in Wandsworth and Wimbledon. I started by just me teaching swimming and offering total of 3 hours a week lessons. Now we have a team of great and enthusiastic swimming teachers who do a brilliant job at motivating our swimmers and deliver excellent lessons for all abilities, 3 days a week, every week. I am so proud of our achievements.

A short update about this term and what we did on Valentine’s Day.

We have already passed the half-way point of this term which started in Jan 2015.

This term we have our swimming lessons running on Mondays and Fridays at Burntwood school venue in SW17 (Wandsworth) and as usual on Saturday afternoons at Wimbledon College, SW19. We are so pleased to be able to offer ‘Parent and Child’ classes for under 3‘s at both venues this term and they run on Saturdays and Fridays.

This term we added a new ‘Parent & Child’ class and a ‘Beginners’ class to our Friday lessons at Burntwood School venue which would be perfect for families who have a toddler (under 3) and a pre-school child, because they can have lessons at the same (at the time of 4.50 pm). Across different age groups, we are so pleased to see majority of our long standing swimmers stayed with us for this term, as well as many new swimmers who joined us. We stay true to our mission and work towards our aim which is; building happy and confident swimmers, one stroke at a time. Every week, we ensure our lessons stay progressive but, we never forget to have fun. On Saturday 14 Feb, we had a Valentine’s Day theme swimming lessons which was a great fun.

Most of our swimmers made a very special effort and most of them had a red item on; a red hat, or a pair of red goggles or a red swimming costume. We did many of our drills and practices with a Valentine’s touch i.e, making a heart with hands when practicing surface dives or back floatation. So, it was really a good fun. We also had a photo shoot on the Valentine’s Day, too, and pictures were taken by a professional photographer-photos turned out FABULOUS.
