    Which floatation device is best for your child?

    The use of a floatation device is extremely important and supportive for children swimming, no matter their age. This is in addition to support from an adult.

    The Magic of the Zoggs Water Wing Vest

    We love the Water Wing vest so what better way to show this than to find out what others think...

    Since using the Zoggs Water Wing Vest in lessons, it has produced incredible results in the confidence and technique of students. I wanted to share a few stories that stand out in using the product as at first I was cautious putting it on my students and I wasn’t sure how well it would work. While at first it looked as though it would work similarly to arm bands and limit arm movement and inhibit good body position, I found it was completely different to my first impression. H
