- 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.

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
- 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.
About our pool:
We are currently teaching from the heated outdoor pool at the Ballard School, Fernhill Lane, New Milton, BH25 5SU
Founded by Melissa Rayner and Courtney Shannon in 2021. We met through shared interest in sea swimming. Our love of swimming has lead to the opening of the New Foreset Swim Academy, and we hope to inspire the next generation of swimmers!
Mel and Courtney are both qualified by an STA Level 2 Award in Teaching Swimming, STA Level 2 Award in Open Water Coaching, and RLSS Open Water Lifguard.
Courtney is a former beach lifeguard and club swimmer, and open water coach. If interested in booking sea swimming sessions with her, please visit http://seashannon.com
