Learn to swim with Dorking Sports Centre Swim School

*#Making the Team*

You can learn to swim at any age.  For those wanting to start swimming we offer learn swim classes for all age groups from parent & baby through to adults.  Children can learn to swim on their own from 3 years. All of our lessons are taught by qualified instructors who will help to develop confidence both in and around the water. 

Swim School

Our lessons follow the Amateur Swimming Association's (ASA), Learn to Swim framework.  This uses fun and games to take children from     the first splash to full competence in the pool and will ultimately help your child develop confidence in the water.
The ASAs Learn to Swim Programme guides your child through ten clearly defined stages, and there's a foundation level to get babies as young as six-months-old started. All of the ASA Learn to Swim Programme is supported by the Kellogg's ASA Awards scheme. Cost varies depending on class but in most cases are £6 per class and can be paid by direct debit.

You can check your child's progress online by registering at: www.dcleisurecentres-oncourse.co.uk/homeportal.

Member price £20 or non member £23 for 30 minute class.

Adult Lessons

If you have a fear of the water, can’t get your face wet or panic just thinking about the deep end then it’s easy to think swimming is not for you.

But if you learn to swim you can have fun in the water with your friends, children and grandchildren. You can also make a splash in the water while on holiday.

The important thing to know is that you are not alone. One in five adults across the country can't swim - but it's never too late to learn. Most pools offer adult classes in a friendly and supportive environment.

The best thing to do is contact us for information on lessons for all ages. Price is about £6.50 per class.

If you are unsure about starting lessons, ask if you can watch a class or two to get a better idea of whether it's for you, or ask to speak with one of the teachers.

Most lessons take things at a slow pace - starting off with teaching you to how to stand up and regain your feet, float and swim without fear before being taught specific strokes.
