Hello, my name is Matty and I am Karen’s son.
When Kim moved back to the UK and set up Les Bebes Amphibies International I was studying a BTEC in Sports Coaching at University College Birmingham, this in combination with the fact that from a young age I have always enjoyed swimming and water activities meant that I was keen to get involved.
After learning about both Kim and Jean’s stories I became inspired to become more actively involved and teach for Bébés Amphibies.
On my road to becoming an instructor I have had to put in lots of swimming practice after College, I have also completed my STA Level 2 Swimming Teachers Certificate, my RLSS Life Guarding qualification and my Paediatric First Aid Course. When living in Birmingham I was also lucky enough to help out with Les Bébés Amphibies’ world record breaking Swimathon.
Now fully STA qualified, I am now ready to start my training with “Les Bebes Amphibies” at a pool in Oxfordshire. I am fully committed to the Les Bebes Amphibies Mission to STOP children drowning and will do this by teaching Aquatic Safety and Swimming Skills to as many children as possible.
I am very excited for the future of Les Bebes Amphibies and can’t wait to help your children become brilliant little swimmers.
