Two swimming instructors from Active Hyde were invited to Arcadia Library and Leisure Centre, Manchester by the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) to host a training session for pool activators delivering the Finding Dory swimming classes, under the expert eye of Olympic medal winning swimmer, Rebecca Adlington.

Kirstie Haigh and Becky Navin headed to the pool in Manchester with Swimming Development Officer for Active Tameside, Nicola Lawton, to deliver Finding Dory training to activators from across the North West who hadn’t yet received the training for the special swimming sessions based on the Disney Pixar film, Finding Dory.

The session involved Kirstie and Becky delivering the session to a group of families whilst Rebecca Adlington was interviewed for the BBC’s Newsround programme from the side of the pool. After the interview, Rebecca Adlington joined the families in the pool taking part in the session and activities being delivered by the Active Tameside duo.

Throughout the summer Active Tameside are hosting Finding Dory sessions at Active Copley and Active Hyde, where families can learn swimming skills together during a fun Finding Dory themed session. More information about these sessions can be found on Active Tameside’s website.
