Learning to swim is a key life skill and it’s never to early or late to start. From babies to adults of all ages, everyone can benefit from developing their skills and confidence in the water. Our swimming lesson programme is suitable for all abilities, whether you are a beginner or need to develop water confidence or improve your technique. Our programmes are based on the Swim England Learn to Swim Pathway.
Swimming lessons for children
Swimming lessons can provide youngsters with the skills to enjoy themselves and get out of a potentially life-threatening situation.
There are a number of swimming lesson stages to work through based on age and swimming ability.
Our swimming lesson programme starts from birth, offering sessions for babies and toddlers to develop their water confidence with parents joining in the sessions. From four years old, your child can join our programme where they will learn to swim independently, develop their technique and water safety skills. For young people we also offer Aqua Youth and Rookie Lifeguards.
Our swimming lesson package includes one lesson per week and unlimited access to general swimming sessions across all our ten pools (fun, inflatable and splash tots sessions are not included).
Child – £23 per month
Check your child’s swimming progress
To keep track of your child’s swimming progress you can log onto the Learn to Swim portal. The portal highlights which awards and stages your child has completed and what skills they need to achieve their next stage. If you have more than one child enrolled on our swimming lesson programme you can add them to your account and view all the information in one place.
Swimming lessons for adults
Our adult swimming lessons cater for all abilities. If you are a complete beginner or confident in the water but want too improve your technique there’s a session for you.
Our swimming lesson package includes one lesson per week and unlimited access to general swimming sessions across all our ten pools.
Adult – £27 per month
Private swimming lessons
If you would like to top up your swimming skills or maybe improve one of your swimming strokes then why not book some private swimming lesson. Available at selected sites across the County, contact us today to find out more or ask at your local leisure centre.
How to join the swimming lesson programme
Our swimming lesson programme runs continuously throughout the year, meaning children and adults taking part can progress at their own pace. The pathway is progressive and awards are achieved along the way to reflect success at each step.
