Teenager Swimming Lessons


Our Swim School programme has supported thousands of young people to learn to swim from our extensive swimming facilities at David Ross Sports Village. 

Due to demand, we will be introducing a new Teenagers Learn to Swim programme with our expert instructors who will support our young swimmers learning to swim in a comfortable environment with those of a similar age. These lessons will be for children 9 - 15 years old.

Our fun, structured sessions focus on improving your child's technique in the water and enabling them to become happy, confident swimmers. 

Our programme offers:

  • A fun, friendly and safe learning environment 
  • Small class sizes
  • Qualified Level 2 instructors for every class
  • Programme based on Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD)
  • High-quality lessons that are stroke technique focused
  • Equipment provided throughout
