Your Swimming Instructor:  Ian Shaw

I was nominated for "England Swimming Teacher of the Year Award 2019" and am currently training to become a Swim England Tutor.

Sport is a major passion in my life!  With more than 20 years’ experience in the leisure and fitness industry.

I am a highly qualified and experienced swimming teacher with over 7 years of swimming teaching behind me. Sport is a major passion in my life and water is my element. I have been a lifeguard in South Africa, the USA, Ireland and the UK.  I am an advanced SCUBA diver and an Open Water swimmer.  I am even an Ironman!

I teach children from one year old through to grandparents; I believe you are never too young or too old to learn to swim.  My style of teaching is to keep it fun and enjoyable whilst improving your swimming technique.
