1-2-1 Lessons

Our Swim School programme is currently temporarily suspended due to national and local restrictions. 

 

 121 Swim 714x335

Our Swim School programme has supported hundreds of young people and adults to learn to swim or improve their skills from our extensive swimming facilities at David Ross Sports Village. 

Available to all ages and abilities, our 1-2-1 and private bubble sessions are a fantastic way to learn to swim or develop your technique. Our expert instructors offer a tailored approach designed around each individual's need and personal goals. 

Our 1-2-1 and private bubble sessions offer:

  • Private lessons for individuals or bubble groups
  • Flexible lessons designed around the individual needs of the swimmer(s)
  • Qualified Level 2 instructors for every lesson
  • Beginner, improvers and advanced level sessions 
  • Private section of the pool designated for your lesson 
  • Equipment provided throughout (or swimmers can bring their own if preferred)

Ensuring your safety and wellbeing

University of Nottingham Sport have introduced a range of measures to ensure everyone's safety and wellbeing when visting our facilities and taking part in our Swim School programme. 

Before your first lesson back, please make sure you've read all our Swim School FAQs and information carefully before you return to familiarise you and your child with all the important changes we've made. 

Our new video also explains all the new measures and changes in place.
