All our pools will offer free swimming to all over-60s, every Friday, from September 2017.
Children’s swimming lessons
There is a large demand for children's swimming lessons. Complete the registration form (below) to add your child to the waiting list.
Children from the age of 4 can join the Advanced Ducklings swimming lessons. To progress to levels one and above, your child must be in the school year that they turn 5 in.
Please note - as from 4th September 2017 following a change in CIMSPA and Swim England guidance swimming teachers will only teach from the side of the pool, there will be no change to the quality of teaching provided.
Our aquatic programme also offers:
- rookie lifeguards
- teen swimming lessons
If you are interested please complete the registration form, so we can assess demand before arranging sessions.
When you receive a message detailing the swimming lesson offered, please contact us, before the deadline date, to secure the place.
