Tom Daley and Becky Adlington join forces to launch Finding Dory swimming lessons

British sporting champions Tom Daley and Becky Adlington are teaming up to launch family swim sessions inspired by Disney-Pixar’s new film Finding Dory.

The campaign from Disney, Change4Life and the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) will see the launch of swim sessions at hundreds of pools across the UK.

The sessions are set to run from July 22nd until September 4th, and will provide an hour of in-water storytelling that will help teach kids key swimming skills,

As part of the campaign, Daley will star in a series of short films while Adlington is sharing her top tips for inspiring children to get active in and out of the pool.

Daley said: “I’m a massive Disney fan myself and can’t think of a better way to get kids enjoying being active than combining their favourite stories and characters with exercise – whether that’s a Finding Dory swim session where families can learn key ASA skills, or a Change4Life 10 Minute Shake Up game kids can play with their friends in the park.

“For me, showing that sport is not a chore and really has a fun side is an important message and I’m thrilled to be supporting this campaign.”

Adlington added: “Since I stopped competitive swimming a few years ago, I understand how tricky it can be to fit exercise into a busy routine – and also make it fun.

“As a mum, it’s even harder. But I’m passionate about inspiring the future generation to get active and that’s why I’m supporting this summer’s campaign from Disney, Change4Life and the ASA.

“The summer holidays can seem really long but there are loads of great ideas to get kids up and about with new 10 Minute Shake Ups, and what better way to spend time together than enjoying a family swim session where you’re learning key skills.”
