Swimmers will receive instruction in small groups.
Warm and comfortable surroundings in the privacy of pools designed and built for swimming instruction.
This is a half hour lesson, once a week for 11 weeks and is run across the width of the pool.
Our aim is to teach basic water confidences, 4 fundamental strokes, improve stroke technique and improve stamina by swimming distances. We also incorporate basic survival skills, which includes swimming in pyjamas, once children reach a certain level.
The children will follow our award scheme which covers all aspects of basic swimming, we hold a badge week once a term, this is usually week 9 in our term programme. This lesson is run down the length of the pool and the children will attempt the badge that they have been working towards throughout the course of their lessons.
Swimmers are tested at the start of the 1st lesson and grouped on ability. We have different ability classes running at the same time each half hour to ensure siblings are able to swim at the same time.
Parents are not required to accompany the children in the water, we have a reception area in which the parents can watch the class.
For more information regarding the badge scheme please speak to a member of staff at the pool.
