Our current swimming lesson programme includes:
- Parent and toddler groups
- Beginner’s classes
- Improver's Lessons
- Squad Swimming
- Rookie Lifeguards
- One to One Private lessons
Our "Tiny Splashers" sessions are run in two age groups and are designed for preschool learning. Starting from 6 months following all inoculations our program takes you from the very earliest trip to the swimming pool through to the development or early strokes ready for the move to our after school and weekend beginners classes.
We believe that class size is important to the speed in which children learn, they need to spend as much time with the teacher as we can offer. To ensure we maximise our swimmers time with their teacher we normally operate a ratio of 5 swimmers to one teacher. In this way your child does not spend lots of time sat still not learning and gets as much swim time as possible. Classes include development of a minimum of two strokes (front and back), and water confidence
In these classes children further develop and fine tune the four swimming strokes whilst beginning to swim lengths and gain more deep water confidence. Our focus is further development of front crawl breathing technique, continue development of backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.
In the later improver's groups swimmers begin to learn diving and correct turns including tumble turns. At the end of our improver's programme children will be able to swim all four strokes, dive, and have an understanding of turns. Classes Include: Development of all four swimming strokes Starts / Diving and Turns Progression to length swimming Swimmers for improver's groups should be able to swim a minimum of 10m on both front and back and have a basic understanding of at least one other stroke. The swimmer should be water confident as tuition will in the main be from the poolside.
Squad swimming is an exciting place for young swimmers to continue their swim training. Aimed at young swimmers who are looking to keep fit, or continue their swimming towards becoming a competitive swimmer, or simply learn some basic life saving skills this group offers the link between swimming lessons and moving onto specialised clubs.
Our focus within Squad swimming is to continue the development of all four strokes, starts and turns whilst introducing our swimmers to a wide range of other activities such as life saving, survival, and increasing our swimmers fitness levels. At the end of our squad swimming swimmers will be able to swim a minimum of 400m+, understand and be able to swim all four competitive strokes. Use correct starts and turns relating to the strokes, and have a clear understanding of other activities, and perhaps even move on to become an Olympic swimmer.
