Summer's a natural!
Introducing the new ambassador for Becky Adlington’s SwimStars – Becky's daughter, Summer!
Now teaching over 9,500 children ages three to 11 every week across the UK, Becky initially set up her SwimStars programme to tackle the statistic that over 1 in 3 children currently leave primary school unable to swim. It’s no surprise then, that following her 3rd birthday this month, Becky wasted no time in getting her daughter to add to this ever-growing number.
Discussing Summer’s first swimming lesson, Becky said: “I’m so excited to see her in a SwimStars lesson. I was a little nervous to begin with because it’s the first time she’s really been in a pool without me by her side, but the team are great and made her feel so comfortable within minutes.
“I’ve always taken her to the local pool so her water confidence has never been an issue – if anything, she can be too brave, so I know these lessons will be great for her to learn more about water safety and teach her the basic skills.”
