Junior Development

'The difference in confidence my daughter had before joining Exeter Swimming and now, some 6 months later is hugely apparent in all she does. The sessions not only teach her to swim well, but also give her skills that she uses outside the pool, such as self-discipline and time mangagement. I couldn't recommend this swim programe highly enough' - Junior Development Parent
