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

Mini Meet Results - June 2016 PDF Print E-mail

I understand that there were a few issues at this June's Mini Meet with no timing pads and no scoreboard. As a club we're sorry the spectator experience was not up to our ususal standards. However, spare a thought for Dave on the tech desk, he had to key in every time manually from hand written stop-watch times to bring you the results!

Hopefully the swimmers enjoyed the evening and look out for news of the next Mini Meet soon.

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.
