Swimming Crash Courses and 121's

For Beginners

These intensive, week long courses are a great way to introduce your child to swimming. The positive experiences your child has in the water will be cemented in their memory as the newly acquired skills will be being reinforced on a daily basis. An excellent way to introduce nervous swimmers to the pool environment.

All beginners (Stage 1, 2 and 3) crash courses take place in our learner pool. This is a secure environment with minimal noise and distractions for the children. The pool is kept at a toasty 31.5 degrees, meaning the children will be warm and comfortable, helping to build an environment in which they feel safe. There are large glass viewing windows all along the side of the pool allowing you, the parent/Guardian, to sit outside of the pool area and watch the progress of your little ones.

Sessions are running this half-term October 26th - 30th 2020 from 8.30am.

For Technique

For children who are already swimming, either in our swim school or in another, these crash courses provide an excellent opportunity to fast track your child's swimming. Whether you want to give them an extra boost ready for a holiday abroad, or to get them working on specific skills so they are able to move up a stage when they come back after the break these are a great way to recieve some high quality coaching.

The benefits of daily swim lessons are exceptional. The children will learn new skills each day and because they are swimming every day they get a chance to practice and perfect them while they are still in their memory. Research shows that regular practice helps to decrease learning time and increase knowledge retained, and you dont get much more regular than every day! An added bonus is that the results are almost instantly measurable as it is much easier to see progress over 5 days than it is over 5 weeks. You will notice a real difference in both the ability of your child and their enthusiasm for lessons.

1-2-1 or 1-2-2 LESSONS

We also offer 1-2-1 and 1-2-2 lessons for swimmers who would like a more personal approach.

Maybe your child has one or two specific things they need to improve before they can move up to the next stage? Do they need a little more confidence in the water? Would they benefit from the removal of distractions and a one on one approach? If so then please pop in a fill out a form for 1-2-1 sessions.

These lessons are not just for children, you can book them whatever your age! Have you always wondered just how those athletes seem to glide so effortlessly under the water? Or how exactly to crack your front crawl breathing without swallowing half of the pool? Maybe it is time you booked yourself in too!

If you have a specific teacher in mind you are welcome to request them. If not then just fill out a form at reception and a teacher will be in contact with you.
