Swimstart DVD

Cerebral Palsy Sport has produced a DVD learning resource for swimming teachers, coaches, parents, companions, occupational therapists and physiotherapists as an introduction to swimming with cerebral palsy.


This learning resource for swimming is one of the many ways we are working towards the vision that everyone with a physical disability is able to access the sport of their choice.

The DVD contains information and advice on how to enhance the support provided to swimmers with a physical disability. By adopting the simple techniques demonstrated, you will improve the experience for swimmers with which you work by improving confidence when working with swimmers with cerebral palsy.

CP Sport would like to thank all the contributors to this DVD: Jill Stidever MBE, Doug Williamson, Anna Lavan, Rebecca Gilbertson, Caroline Wharlow, Matt Walker, the staff of Ibstock Leisure Centre and all the brilliant CP Swimmers and helpers that took part in the filming.
