Tracy has run two previous Swim Schools in partnership in West Sussex, and has has now decided to set up on her own and run her own Swim School.
Tracy was fortunate enough to have been a competitive swimmer at Beckenham Swimming Club, training long hours 6 days a week right up to the age of 21! At that time Beckenham was the best club in Britain. Late on Tracy has trained and swam in the Masters on several occasions, butterfly being her favorite stroke.
With the knowledge she has gained through competing and teaching over 36 years, she can offer a wealth of experience. Tracy works to understand and interact with pupils and identifying their individual needs. All pupils are individuals and require different approaches. Tracy will ensure that this will all help to achieving the ultimate goal of being able to swim competently.
Tracy has been teaching babies for over ten years now and enjoys offering such a wide range of abilities. Keeping up-to-date, learning how to improve and adapting to a pupils needs is so important. This is what drives us to provide high standards of teaching.

Keri Flint-Clarke joins us as a fully qualified swimming teacher at Handcross School on a Sunday and Lancing Diving Centre on Saturdays. With a history of competitive swimming, she has recently been involved in open water swimming.
Her aim is to make learning to swim as fun as possible. Teaching with a supportive, all inclusive attitude through a range of games integrated with skills and stroke development.
Keri volunteers teaching swimming at Horsham amateur swimming club, one of the oldest swimming clubs in Sussex.
When she isn’t teaching swimming she works as an emergency and critical care veterinary nurse in Brighton. “Animals, science and swimming have always been a passion in my life and now I’m able to do jobs that combine all of these. I’m so happy when a pet gets to go home fixed and have found that helping children achieve their potential in swimming makes me feel the same.”
