Review of the month

“We have just been away for a week in Spain and Theo was in the pool constantly!! He was soooo confident and swam independently jumped in with no fear. He has swam under water, dived for sticks, tread and floated like a starfish. I would like to say thank you to Kelly and Claire for getting him to that point, he has shone this last week and i have been so suprised and proud of him.”


My son Yusuf got second beginner lessons last Wednesday & he has got confidence in the water.He can’t wait until next week again 🙂
My son Saahil had his first lesson ever today and the swim team Leeds were brilliant so welcoming and friendly really put my son at ease, looking forward to his next lesson, highly recommended. When we first got there my son was scared but he’s now at such ease and keen to learn.
Isla had her first lesson today, she was so excited. Got there and she was so shy and wouldn’t go in. Thankfully the team took her and she was fine. Looking forward to next week and hope the shyness eases 🙂
My little fish laila as come along so well with swim team leeds and already jumped 2 stages within one term. Thank you kelly for putting up with her little tantrums when she finds things difficult or cant do 2 things at once
My daughter didn’t even like water in her face before coming here now she jumps in and is doing really well!! Excellent staff very friendly and are very good with the children
My children have both come on so much since starting here! Teachers are great & my kids love going. Couldn’t ask for more x
My son had his first lesson tonight which he loved and has not stopped talking about since we returned home. The swim instructors were great and kept the children entertained throughout. While I sat at the side smiling the whole way through at just how much my son was enjoying it. Thank-you so much I am so glad I saw the advertisement on Facebook we are looking forward to next weeks lesson already
We are amazed at how well our three year old girl has progressed with her swimming since starting her lessons in September. Very happy with Swim Team Leeds and would definitely recommend.
My daughter was scared to even get her face wet when she first started her lessons, now only afew months later she will swim with her face in the water. Kelly and davie are absolutely amazing with the kids. They teach them in such a fun way. Ruby loves her lessons. Thank you so much guys x
This team are great. They put their all into the kids and get the best out of them. Would highly recommend
Such a wonderful lovely team. My little boy was scared to even step into the pool, but he has come on so much that he actually said he missed swimming due to having a bad chest. And went on a day that was not his normal day to go as he likes it so much. Thanks so much guys, we have a long way to go but I have faith that he will do amazing with Kelly, cathy and Sarah behind him.
fabulous is the only word…… Great eith my 2 year old who can be very mummy mummy but he stayed in the whole lesson with encouragement from the team thank you guys 😊
My son had his first swimming lesson with swim team today he’s nearly 7 and hasn’t been confident around water. So I thought let’s get some swim lessons booked we’ve gone to previous places before but he’s never settled or felt comfortable and since Covid it’s set a lot of us back so it’s nice to get back to some normality. Today he did amazing absolutely smashed it. I didn’t think he could swim but he did. The team were confident, patient and amazing with him in the space of half an hour he went from wearing the cookies and noodle to swimming on his back with nothing. I was very impressed with the swim teams techniques and he can’t wait for his lesson next week. Thank you so much I highly highly recommend these guys
The swim team are a fantastic swimming school. My daughter attends two lessons a week with this company and now thinks shes a real mermaid due to the skills they have taught her. They are brilliant with the children and build up good bonds with the children. Not only are they good teachers but lovely people and very caring. My daughter as spent a long time with Kelly and Ryan over her time with swim team and she thinks the world of them( thinks they’re her best friends) but also is now enjoying her time with Elliott who she says is so funny and she looks forwards to her lessons with Elliott and Ryan so much. Keep up the good work guys you are fab!!!!!!. From Lyra and family.
Jack started with the swim team when they re opened after lock down in March, he absolutely loves it. Elliot is a fab teacher and Jack has gone from being really nervous about swimming on his back to doing a full lap of the pool on his back with no armbands on. So glad we found the swim team and would 100% recommend to anyone who’s nervous about swimming lessons
My son joined The Swim Team in January, he is very shy and has struggled with previous swimming lessons. It’s been a very different experience this time, the instructors are amazing with him and he is progressing really well. Thank you 😊
The instructor’s are absolutely amazing.. they make your child feel so relaxed and are very patient. I would definitely recommend The Swim Team. Thank you.
Thank you to the swim team (Simon) for helping Tarun with his confidence in the water he is a completely different child & now loves he’s lessons.
Amazing team, my son aged 9 and daughter 8 have become so confident in the water. I cant believe the progress they have made.
We went swimming through the holidays, watching them in the water beam with confidence and enjoy every minute was great – thank you
On his 3rd lesson Rowan bounced over to me to say “you know what mum, I love swimming” The energy and fun atmosphere make a normally quite nervous child want to be brave and try hard. He’s swam under water and jumped off without holding hands for the first time ever already. So pleased we found the Swim Team.
Both our children have swimming lessons with the swim team. All the teachers are fab and they have progressed so well. Thanks Swim team!
Really lovely swim school. My daughter loves Kelly as she gives her tonnes of confidence in the water. Highly recommend!
I cannot recommend the swim team enough! My daughter attends the lessons with Kelly at Scholes Primary school and she’s so amazing with all the children but my daughter loves her and cannot wait for her lessons every week! Thanks so much for helping to build her confidence not only in the water but also outside too 😊
My daughter wasn’t confident in water at all, until she started having lessons with the swim team! I didn’t think I’d ever see her under water. She’s now so much more confident in water and loves swimming. The staff are amazing, friendly and great with the little ones!
The Swim Team have been amazing. Our son was really scared of the water when he started and it has been so pleasing to see him develop into a confident swimmer with the help of Davie, Kelly, Ryan, Simon and Brad. Each individual tutor our son has had has been really caring, challenging and inspiring and he absolutely loves swimming now. He even swam in the sea for the first time last month. Highly recommended!!
My little girl has only just started these lessons! The team are fab and she’s really enjoying it! I can tell it’s going to bring her confidence out so much! Thanks 🙂
They are the best. My daughter couldn’t swim to begin with but now is amazing, these people not only teach them to swim but they adapt the lesson to the childs individual capability.
Lovely swimming teachers and are so good with the kiddies
Swim Team have just been fantastic with my daughter (age 5) and son (3, almost 4). My daughter was very nervous to begin with as she’d had one swimming lesson at the council pool in Kippax which she hated (despite having loved swimming with us as a family). Swim Team were incredibly patient and kind with her and after a couple of lessons, she was very excited about going. It was a big relief to us after she’d initially been so scared! Kelly and Ryan are both really lovely, kind and warm, and have a wonderful knack with the kids — their lessons are full of fun and laughter. Less than a term after starting, my daughter has become so much more confident, and has got her Duckling 1 & 2 awards (she was so proud!) My son was fine from the start, and it was great that he and his sister could start off in the same group. They’ve been using the Scholes pool, which is small and shallow so they can both stand up in it and feel safe and confident. A huge thanks to Swim Team — worth every penny! 🙂
My daughter really enjoys her swimming lessons with Swim Team Leeds. They are very patient when the kids start to get a bit mischievous! I would definitely recommend them.
