About the Book

What others are saying ...


“Swimming Against the Current” by Ms Anne Green proves to be a great manual for all those involved in the sport of swimming : for the athletes with disabilities, including the Coaches, Athletes and Students of Physical Education. The book contributes significantly to the relative bibliography by teaching in a simple and descriptive way the training methods of swimming for all the different types of disabilities”

Spyros Stavrou Technical Coordinator, Hellenic Sports Federation for Persons with Disabilities, Greece


"In this publication, Anne shares her vast knowledge and experience of swimming for people with disabilities. The principles that are outlined within this publication will provide a sound foundation for all programmes that involve swimmers with disabilities.

This publication is a wonderful resource for both teachers and coaches of swimming.”

Tim Reddish Chairman British Paralympic Association, Great Britain


 "The text in the manual is very practical and directly to the point with pictures that can both stand alone, and are supporting the text as well. The manual is  good reading for both coaches who are beginning to work with disabled swimmers as well as seasoned coaches. I wish I had it when I was beginning to work with my swimmers".
