LEARN TO SWIM
As Commonwealth Gold Medallist, proud Teessider, and lover of all things swimming, Aimee believes in helping others share her passion and enjoyment for the sport.
After a successful year with Tees Active Aimee has extended her partnership as the Official Ambassador of Tees Active’s Learn to Swim Scheme.
Stockton-based community leisure trust Tees Active operates swimming pools in Billingham, Stockton and Thornaby and teaches over 2,000 children to swim each week. The partnership with Tees Active aims to raise the profile of swimming in Stockton-on-Tees and inspire the next generation of swimmers.
Tees Active Managing Director, Leon Jones explains, “We’re really excited to continue to work with Aimee, not only is she a Commonwealth Gold medallist who has competed all over the world, but she shares our passion and commitment to promoting swimming across the region.
"Swimming is one of the most accessible and rewarding activities that anyone can do, and we hope that together with Aimee we can encourage everyone to become more active, by making the most of their local pool and experiencing the many physical and mental health benefits it can provide.”
Aimee added “Learning to swim is such an important life skill that will stay with you forever. I’ve been swimming for as long as I can remember and it all started with a few splashes in my local pool, just like every other child out there.”
“Tees Active has been teaching children to swim in Stockton for over 15 years and have one of the most widely recognised and successful swimming schemes out there, so it’s a perfect fit for me to become the Learn to Swim Ambassador and get behind something that has such a huge impact to the lives of so many children.”
