Making Waves have taught more than 16,000 children to swim in Scotland at their own purpose built facility in East Kilbride!
About Making Waves
Making Waves is a company that is dedicated to teaching children and adults to swim.
For 16 years, we operated from freezing health clubs and school pools that left a lot to be desired in terms of cleanliness and reliability.
It was our vision to create a facility that matched our service, one that was sparkling clean, warm pool and atmosphere - for being cold exaggerates fear, with plenty of warm showers and lots of room for changing.
We have taken great care over every detail.
We designed the pool with a toilet right beside it to minimise the disruption to children’s learning, and to increase child protection.
We opted for soft fabric ducting to minimise the noise and reduce the energy use.
We chose the Dryden glass complete daisy system, to ensure that not only was it more environmentally friendly, it was kind to children (and their teacher’s!) skin, airways and hair.
We installed a glass balustrade, giving full open view of the pool and put in a cafe to allow parents to relax just a little.
And that’s just the facility.
Our lessons are progressive and structured. We don’t use armbands. Our teachers are in the water and get children to swim unaided as early as possible.
Our class sizes are small. We give one to one attention to each child, developing their swimming from their starting point. We pay particular attention to how the stroke is developed, ensuring that children not only become confident in the water, but that their swimming is a delight to watch and a starting point for a multitude of other sports and fitness pursuits that will be with them for their whole lives.
Our staff are amazing! Each one of them a pleasure to work with and develop with.
If you’d like to take a leap and chose something extraordinary for your children, contact us today and we will help you get booked in.
And if you’re an adult wishing to learn, our pool has the privacy and expertise that you are looking for.
Thank you for reading, we hope to hear from you soon!
