Lorraine Cooper

My name is Lorraine;

I started swimming from a very young age. My parents saw swimming as a life skill, which I instil into my 3 children too (Aged 11, 9 & 7). I believe that swimming is an important skill that children & adults alike should have & everyone should have the opportunity to learn.

Throughout secondary school I was part of the swim team. I would train 5 days a week, mornings, lunchtimes and after school. Swimming was a big part of my life.  I swam competitively for 4 years as a backstroke swimmer. My greatest achievement was to swim in Regionals. At every opportunity I would compete.

I found my love for swimming again when my children started lessons at school. I would assist during their lessons at school. Watching them have fun in the pool and learning a skill at the same time without realising they are amazing.

I’m more at home in the water, it’s amazing how free you can feel. I find it’s a great way to exercise, clear your mind and have time to yourself when you need it. But it’s also a great way to bond with your child/Children be it through lessons or fun

As an instructor, I am nurturing and patient. I enjoy teaching beginner classes; it’s so rewarding to see their faces light up when they are having fun. I will ease their fears and encourage them to try new tasks and have fun while learning. With my improvers I like to encourage them to find their abilities to reach their goals.

ASA level 1 Swimming assistant
