Lisa Reeder

Regional swim impact manager

Spelthorne Leisure Centre

Everyone Active

Lisa Reeder has progressed from swimming teacher to regional swim impact manager at Spelthorne Leisure Centre.

“Seeing my own children enjoying swimming lessons inspired me to train as a teacher.

“I completed Level 1 and 2 ASA qualifications in 2006 and joined Everyone Active part-time.

“I also took on an admin role managing school swimming lessons and enjoyed it so much I applied to become a swim manager. From there I was promoted to regional swim impact manager.

“This involves managing 25 teachers, 1,800 children and 15 schools, so there’s lots of organisation required!

“Being dyslexic hasn’t held me back and Everyone Active has been supportive with training.

“I still teach one to one sessions for children with special needs on Sundays and seeing them lose their nerves and go home with a smile on their face is hugely rewarding.

“It’s also important I look after my team, making sure they progress and develop their skills to ensure they deliver the high standard of teaching we need for our Swim School.”

Seeing [children] lose their nerves and go home with a smile on their face is hugely rewarding.
