I just wanted to write to say how impressed I was with all the fabulous young people at my daughter's class (last week, Colman Junior School pool)- they were so friendly and encouraging that they got my very shy daughter (who has never previously let go of me in a pool or got her face intentionally wet!) swimming with floats and sitting on the bottom of the pool! Amazing! Helen, Colman Splashdown
Holly is really enjoying her lessons and having watched her at the end of half term, I’m really happy with the progress she is making.  The teachers are great; really friendly and we’re really glad we chose Norwich Penguins-Thank you! Lisa, Drayton Thursday
I just want to say how much Jenna has enjoyed swimming with Norwich Penguins, especially with Chris and has made really good progress with him. Perhaps you could pass on our thanks as I think he is an exceptional instructor. Helen, Town Close Tues.

"I would like to congratulate Penguins on the outstanding swimming lesson my children received last week. We have been to several other swimming clubs around Norwich and Penguins surpasses all of them! I was really impressed with the methodical process of the lessons, the attention to detail, and generally the no nonsense training. Cant wait for the next lesson!" Aimee Barter.

"My son, Tom, attends Weds 5pm at Heartsease and his teacher Chris has been really good. He has really good attention to detail, in particular he seems to get the kids individual needs and communicates really well with them." Jennifer, Heartsease Wed.

"Milly had her first lesson on Saturday and really enjoyed it - can't wait to go this week!" Kelly, Thorpe Saturday

"I would also like to add how much Jago enjoys swimming lessons and his confidence in water is so much better." Jane, Hethersett Tues

Volunteer Development Programme

With the tried and tested volunteer development programme within the Norwich Penguins and UEA City of Norwich Swimming Club you can work with experienced staff, engaged children and begin your journey on the road to becoming a qualified swimming teacher.  The majority of our volunteers go on to take their qualifications and work alongside either their regular day job or alongside their schooling or raising their own children. Volunteers can begin with the programme from the age of 14.

Qualification opportunities leading to professional positions

The UEA City of Norwich Swimming Club organises and hosts national governing body qualifications for both swimming teaching and coaching.  The recent revision of the education programme by the Amateur Swimming Association means that level 1 and level 2 qualifications can be taken from the age of 16. The club has a complete swimmer pathway meaning that it teaches swimmers from the babies through the masters swimmers and therefore has the opportunity to develop your skills teaching and coaching athletes of all abilities after you have taken your qualifications.
