Junior and baby / toddler lessons last 30 minutes.

Swimming Lesson Programme

Our lesson programme 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 ASA Awards scheme.

 

Reflecting our commitment to continuously improving the delivery of swimming lessons, we are investing in the latest technology to record the performance of children during their lessons.

Through an internet based Home Portal parents/guardians will be able to access information about your child’s swimming lessons including:

  • Your child’s performance against the key competencies for their course level E.g. Swim 100m efficient backstroke.
  • A rating from the teacher on how they are doing against this competency E.g. Needs practice / Fair / Good
  • Notification of when your child is ready to move up a level and the ability to choose from the available times for your child to move into
  • Record of all assessments and pass dates for each level
