Swimming Lesson Update

We have received an update on the temporary pool at Andover which we wanted to share with you as valued member who has made a booking for this facility. The building of a temporary swimming pool for Andover has seen rapid progress since May when it started to be erected at the Shepherds Spring Lane car park. The pool building and concrete base are now in place and the project is nearing completion.

However, we have since been informed that Total Swimming who are responsible for delivering the pool are now unable to meet the initial contractual completion date due to a breakdown in their supply of certain building materials.

Total Swimming are working to progress the temporary pool as quickly as possible and have given a revised opening date of 29 September.

We understand that this delay will impact upon the start date of your swimming lessons. All lessons will now start w/c 2nd October and we shall be in touch with you shortly regarding your specific lesson time(s) based on the preferences you have given us. Your first direct debit will also be moved to ensure it is reflective of these revised dates.

Should you require any further information regarding your swimming lessons please contact enquiries@andoverswimmingpool.org.

We would also like to confirm that your membership arrangements remain as they currently are and we shall be in touch with any further updates as we hear about them.

In the meantime, construction on the new Andover Leisure Centre which is being undertaken separately by us as part of the leisure management contract has already begun and is on track to open Spring 2019 as planned. We aim to keep you updated on the latest news and photographs from the site at: www.placesforpeopleleisure.org/centres/andover-leisure-centre/

Thanks for your patience and we look forward to welcoming you in October!

 

All the best,

 

The Andover Leisure Centre team

 

 

Customers who would like to re-start their swimming lessons at the temporary pool will be asked to complete application forms, Direct Debit instructions and nominate their preference for day and time of lesson. We have done our best to maximise the places available and will try to accommodate as many of our customers as we can. The lessons will not necessarily be at the same times or on the same days as before.

Below are details of the proposed swimming lesson programme for the temporary pool which may be subject to change. For further information on the Learn to Swim programme levels click here.

Swimming Hats and Awards

Swim England is the national awarding body for teaching qualifications and learn to swim awards.  All our learners will be following the national curriculum in the four frameworks; Foundation Framework, Learn to Swim Framework, Aquatic Skills Framework, Adult Framework.  More details about these programmes can be found on the Swim England website.

Everyone in our swimming lessons will be required to wear a swim hat.  The hat colours represent the class the swimmer is in and children can look forward to being given a different coloured hat when they complete a swimming stage.  There will be stage badges and a range of complementary skills badges too.

We look forward to seeing you all soon.   

All the best,

The Andover Leisure Centre Swimming Team
