What People Say About Us

My little girl started her swimming lessons with Swim 4U a few months ago, since then her confidence and ability have grown lesson by lesson. The coaches give their full commitment to the swimmers. The lessons are fun, well structured and engaging for parents and children. The whole team are friendly, dedicated and professional, Swim 4U is an excellent swimming club and I can not recommend them enough.

Dannielle McGinness


My child did his swimming lessons with Siobhan and Sam for over 6 years … he came on leaps and bounds during that time achieving all his awards and now aged 12 is a confident swimmer. As a parent I am reassured he is safe in the water should he ever get into difficulty and also his weekly swims kept him fit and healthy. The instructors are patient and ensure progress at each stage.

Julie Daniels


Both my children have had swimming lessons with Siobhan and she is the best! My daughter had a fear of water until she came to Swim 4U! And my son is 4 and already swam 50 metres. I can't recommend them enough!


My son has been attending swimming lessons with Siobhan, Sam and the rest of the team for just under a year. He has said on several occasions that the lessons are the highlight of his week, and make his life 10x better! He is now swimming completely unaided and his confidence in the water has gone through the roof. He is getting better every day. You all do a remarkable job. Thank you.
