Hi I’m Jon,

I have been an A.S.A swimming instructor for over ten years.

I have swum competitively to county standard as a youth but now enjoy swimming at a more leisurely pace and more importantly passing on my knowledge and skills to pupils during my lessons. I enjoy helping young swimmers take their first strokes and love helping my older swimmers refine their technique.

When I am not teaching I enjoy participating in a variety of sports including squash, football and martial arts.

“My five year old daughter took a five day holiday crash course with Jon  – it was her first experience of swimming lessons – and she enjoyed it enormously.

Jon’s calm instruction and the small class size gave her a lot of confidence in the water, and she is now excited to try out the weekly classes.

We’ve been very impressed so far with Elite Swimming Academy’s organization and instruction, and we look forward to watching our kids learn to swim through their expert guidance!”

Just a short note to thank you at this, the end of our grandson’s second term, with Jon at Barrow swimming pool.

Two weeks ago, our grandson achieved his 5m swimming certificate; he will not be three until the middle of September this year. We are so proud and pleased and just wanted to thank Elite, and especially Jon, for the amazing way our grandson has been taught to swim at a relatively young age and in such a short time.

He was already very happy and confident in the water and in particular, swimming under water but Jon has taken him to a new level.

So Jon, many thanks for your patience and also discipline in the lessons and see you in September!
