After-school classes – Term time only
These after school swimming classes are especially designed and run for children who have previously attended submersion classes and have learnt to swim at a young age.
Many parents find that when their children finish classes to start school they have problems in finding alternative classes. Many pools won’t take children for swimming lessons until they are 5 and then only for non or weak swimmers who require armbands. Classes offered for children of a similar ability often have children of 7 or 8 years old whose stamina and attention span far exceed that of a 4 year old.
We have designed after school swimming classes which work on improving stroke techniques and stamina. We increase the range of strokes and also cover other skills such as diving, sculling, tumble turns, treading water and help to prepare children for swimming clubs at age 7+.
During the after school classes the children are also working towards their Learn to Swim Awards 1-7.
As from January 2018 there will be a charge of £3 for badges and certificates.
