Robert set up class lessons for adult and child classes for babies from 6 months, to pre-school classes then onto the Learn to Swim Programme for children. Robert felt that small class sizes with the instructor in the water allowed for very individualised instruction and for the children to develop at a better pace.

Vigour Events offers novice and avid swimmers the opportunity to participate in Open Water swimming events throughout the year and to challenge themselves to swim different distances.
