Supersharks is a well-established family-run swim school, specialising in small-group lessons.
The school was started in 1998 by experienced swimming teacher and coach, Chris Rydquist and her son Jonny, also a teacher and former competitive swimmer.
Chris and Jonny were motivated by their love of swimming and by their strong belief that the most effective and enjoyable way to learn this valuable life-skill is in a well-matched group with a low pupil/teacher ratio.
Every child should know how to swim for their own safety and survival and here at Supersharks that is our first priority!
But at Supersharks Swim School we don’t just stop there! We believe and we’re sure that you agree that swimming is good for all these reasons and more:-
- Low impact exercise (good for the joints)
- Good for the heart, lungs and circulation
- Tones the muscles
- Used as a part of other sports such as rowing, sailing, waterskiing, windsurfing, surfing, sailing, etc.
- Stress relief, relaxation the enjoyment of life!
We really care about teaching children to swim and teaching your kids not just to survive but to thrive in the water is something we pride ourselves on.
That’s why we teach our lessons in small groups, so that your child has maximum attention and improvement. We aim to make competent swimming a good habit your child continues for life helping them to stay fit, healthy and relaxed.
At Supersharks, we choose and train only the best teachers we can find and this combined with our small ratio, allows us to guarantee that your child will improve faster and become a stronger swimmer with us than in a larger group with another swim school or just learning the basics at school.
We have over 50 years of combined teaching and coaching swimming experience and our pupils frequently go on to join different local swimming, rowing and sailing clubs, achieving success at all levels including swimming at National level (the top level before swimming for your Country)!
