Lessons are taught under ASA guidelines by qualified instructors.

If you want to give your child a good start to swimming, teach them water confidence and the enjoyment of being in a public pool by taking them regularly and letting them play. We recognise this is not possible for all parents and families but where possible can help with the fundamentals of learning to swim. A confident child who is not afraid of the water will make quicker progress. Although please be reassured our instructors will teach your child to enjoy the water with lots of game playing and develop their water confidence, and ultimately their ability to swim unaided.
