Swimming for asylum seekers

Today we have started our first courses of swimming for asylum seekers. We were excited and nervous, like everyone who starts something new (our beginners know how it feels when they start to swim with us from absolute zero).

We have opened 3 groups: Every Tuesday at 11, at 12 and at 13.00. 4 students in each one.

8 weeks of work is waiting for us and our new students! Look like it looks like HERE
