Offering excellent facilities, this very well maintained 25m, six lane pool (depth 0.9m to 3m) is suitable for all abilities.  Some young children may be out of their depth but with the teacher to pupil ratio at 1:3, this is not a disadvantage, and often quite the contrary!  For more advanced swimmers, it also benefits from diving blocks and pace clock, and exceptional 3m depth for high board style diving skills.

A small teaching pool of 10m x 5m (depth 0.75m to 1.05m), with limited viewing and basic facilities (no showers). Here most children remain within their depth. It’s ideal for non-swimmers through to improver levels (our level 1-5).Due to the shallow nature of the pool no assistant is needed.

Classes

 

We teach children from 4 ½ to 16 years, in our unique 10 level programme.

Below offers a guideline to classes and level structure.
For more detail about which level would suit your swimmer see here.

Please note our class levels do not equate to ASA national plan levels, and that the ‘quality of stroke’ will better dictate level than ability to swim distances.  For level 4 upwards, swimmers must be swimming confidently in deep water.

Diving
This course develops both high-board style diving skills (i.e vertical entry) and related skills that can be taken as far as the individual is able, as well as more traditional ‘racing style’ dives. This course normally runs for two terms, but can be booked as single term. It is suitable for competent to advanced swimmers (our level.5 +)

   

Survival and Rescue
This valuable, informative and fun class runs as a single term block of lessons. It is surprisingly challenging, and does demand some stamina swimming. As part of the course, participants will be required to swim in full clothing. It is suitable for competent to advanced swimmers (our level.5 +)

   

Syncronised Swimming
This surprisingly challenging and fun course teaches dance, gymnastics and swimming and stamina all in one! And put to music, we aim to produce a short ’production’ at the end of term. Suitable for competent to advanced swimmers (our levels 6+)
