The main aim of the Learn To Swim event is to encourage more children to learn to swim at an early age, as swimming is a major life skill, opening the doors to many other water -based activities. Speedo‘s Learn To Swim range of swimwear, training aids and accessories is divided into three simple, progressive stages, which help build confidence and get children enjoying the water in no time. Rebecca is a strong supporter of Speedo’s Learn To Swim initiative and firmly believes all children should have the opportunity to take to the water in a safe and fun way, “Learning how to swim enables kids to feel confident in the water and opens the door to a range of other water sports”. During her time at the Speedo Roadshow, Rebecca will be available to have her photo taken with fans and sign autographs.
