Victoria Whitaker
Victoria has been a swimming teacher at Stingrays for 12 years. Like Hazel, she began her swimming career at Sowerby Bridge Ladies Swimming Club and has fond memories of swimming with the club, galas in particular. Victoria enjoys seeing non swimmers gaining confidence and learning to swim in a friendly and positive club. The club has a strong family atmosphere, with siblings, cousins and even children of past swimmers as members and this is something Victoria is always keen to promote.
