LEARN THE BASICS OR BOOST YOUR SKILLS

It’s important that you can feel confident your little one can enjoy the water safely, so why not get in touch to ask about our swimming lessons?

They are suitable for children aged between four and 14, and are run on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Our swimming lessons are run by fully qualified instructors and cover Beginners, Improvers 1, Improvers 2, Advanced & Advanced +. From the non swimmer to the club swimmer, we have the class for your children.

Not only a fun safe environment to learn swimming but also following the ASA National Plan for teaching. Your child will gain safety awareness, quality technique and a level of all-round proficiency. All instructors are ASA level 2 qualified.

Children progressing though the ASA levels will also obtain merit badges and certificates showing their achievements as well as end of term reports so that you as parents can also gain an understanding of how your child is doing.

Classes run on a Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

For enquiries regarding our swimming lessons please contact Lorraine Curtis by e-mail: LXC@wellingtonfitness.co.uk or phone 01344 444 244.
