Jeanette Yates
Swimming Teacher


Jeanette has been a swimming teacher for over 14 years, although she hasn’t come from a swimming background, she has always known the importance of swimming as a life skill and strives to achieve every individuals full potential.

Jeanette always transfers her passion and enjoyment of being in the water to the pupils she teaches. Swimming teaching is a very big part of her life; she has experience teaching little ones starting out on their swimming journey as ducklings right through to advanced swimmers and has seen some of her past students themselves become teachers and lifeguards. Jeanette also has a passion for open water snorkel diving and holds a BS-AC Instructor qualification and regularly take trainees to open water events.

Jeanette looks forward to sharing her knowledge and to helping more children reach their full potential in the pool (or open water)! She loves teaching and meeting new people as well as encouraging children into exercise. “Seeing students grow in confidence through exercise is a fantastic reward and something I never get bored with.  Seeing children enjoy the water and gain skills within the water is so rewarding” says Jeanette
