About Higgins Aquatics Swim School

My name is Seamus Higgins I have been a swimmer teacher/coach for over 16 years. I am the head coach at Epsom District swimming club, I have worked at Epsom for over 12 years. I have started at the bottom working with non swimmers and worked my way up to the competitive squads. I have a lot of experience working with young swimmers taking them from swimming with Woggles and aids to club swimmer swimming in competitions.

I started swimming at a younge age and swam competitively until i was 16 years old. I swam at all levels for my club (country to national). I have worked with some fantastic teachers and coaches. I will bring this experience with me to our lessons.

I have a passion for teaching children to swim. All of my lessons are based on two things:

  1. My lessons must be fun.
  2. My lessons must challenge the swimmer.

I feel the perfect age to start children in the water on their own is 4 years old. My first task is to get the swimmers to enjoy the water safely and slowly develop their water skills. We run small classes with a max number of 6 swimmers. We have helpers in the water with the non swimmers. At Higgins Aquatics we pride ourselves in developing 4 good strokes as well as lots of different water skills. When joining us the first lesson is free, why don't you come down and enjoy a fun filled swimming lesson on us. I hope to see you all at the pool soon, all the best!
