Out of all the different clubs she does and has done her swimming lesson is the best, she says she has had fun while learning to swim well and thinks Jak is the best swimming teacher.
I would like to add I have enjoyed watching my daughter and granddaughter every week progress to be great swimmers, Jak is an amazing teacher and the kids love her, she is so good at what she does and although at some point they will reach a point where they have completed all the swim stages I don’t want their swimming lessons to end as they love it so much.- Sam & Ellie
