Enroll. Learn. Develop.

It’s never too early or too late to learn to swim. For those wanting to start swimming we offer lessons for all age groups from babies through to adults across our 3 swimming pools.  Our lessons are designed to develop confidence both in and around the water for any age and our friendly qualified teachers and instructors are there to guide you through each stage of your learning journey. From Waterbabies to competitive swimming, as the largest provider of swimming lessons in the district, we are confident that we provide quality sessions with fantastic instruction in the best facilities in the area.

Waterbabies

Age 2½ months – 3 years

More Information

By introducing your baby to swimming from an early age, you are starting them on a habit that will last a lifetime and teaching them an important and potentially life-saving skill. A fun and rewarding experience, Water Babies sessions help build the bond and trust between you and your baby. It’s also a great way to exercise.

The following Water Babies sessions are available at all 3 of our swimming pools:
LITTLE FLOATERS: Age: 2½ – 12 months
LITTLE SPLASHERS: Age: 12 – 24 months
LITTLE KICKERS: Age: 24 – 36 months

The Nursery

Age 3 – 5 years

More Information

The Nursery is split into three levels based on ability and age. Each stage has been carefully designed with a balanced set of activities including swimming technique, safety skills, floating, individual and group work including songs and games. However, the emphasis remains on learning through having fun! Your child will develop their water confidence, stroke development and learn essential life-saving skills.

STARFISH – Age: 3 – 4 Years. Ability: Beginners

Our stages cater for children who are starting from scratch to those who have a little more confidence and are already swimming independently and just need to develop their stroke. At each stage of their journey, your child will recieve a certificate and badge to mark their progress through the stages and recognise their achievement.

Children are grouped by skill rather than age in the following categories:
TERRAPINS – 
ASA STAGE 1
