Early Years Swim 714 x335

We offer an extensive Swim School programme for all ages and abilities from 6 weeks old to adults. Our expert coaches aim to provide all swimmers and outstanding experience in our comfortable, safe and fun environment.

There are a variety of options available, including 1-2-1 private lessons and group sessions. 

For babies and toddlers, we have a special programme which is delivered in our heated hydrotherapy pool and focuses on building confidence in the water through activities with colourful toys and nursery rhymes.

Working closely alongside Swim England, our programme is focused on Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD), providing high-quality tuition focussed on stroke technique.
