Descriptions: 
  • NEW! Parent and Baby/Toddler: These sessions are for parents or carers and their babies and toddlers, aged 18 months to 3 years.  This is a great way to introduce your little one to the water, and fun for parents too!
  • Non-Swimmer: These sessions are for children of any age with limited water confidence, experience, or ability.  The focus of these sessions will be to introduce children to the pool, learn safety practices, develop confidence skills, and begin to move through the water. 
  • Beginners A: These sessions are for children, typically aged 5 to 9, who have limited ability and confidence.  The aim of the sessions will be to introduce the strokes, learn safety practices, further develop confidence skills, and submerge under the water.
  • Beginners B: These sessions are for children, typically aged 7-11, who have some limited ability and confidence.  The aim of these sessions will be to introduce the strokes, learn safety practices, further develop confidence skills, and submerge under the water. 
  • Improvers: These sessions are for children, typically aged 8 and over, who are confident in the water, and can swim at least 10 meters.  The aim of these sessions will be to promote safety, reinforce confidence skills, and improve front crawl, back crawl, and breaststroke. 
  • Swim Skills: These sessions are reserved for children aged 9 and over, of any ability.  We understand that lockdowns over 2020 and 2021 have made retention of swimming skills very difficult for this age group in particular.  Sessions focus on technique, endurance, ability, and confidence in a safe and welcoming environment.
