Children's Swimming Lessons

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

 
Swim School 714x335


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

Our Children's lessons are for swimmers aged from 4.5 years to 14 years-old from Beginners' level to Stage 9. Our expert instructors will support our young swimmers to learn the basics through to becoming a trained competitive swimmer. 

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
  • Additional Level 1 instructors to support all Beginner and Stage 1 lessons
  • Programme focussed on Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD)
  • High-quality lessons based around technique for all strokes 
  • 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 updated timetable below shows the information for each class. 

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