Swimming Crash Courses

We run Crash Courses for children during many of the school holidays. Each course is run over consecutive days, with a lesson at the same time each day.

A Crash Course can provide an ideal chance for children already having swimming lessons to build on skills they are currently learning. They are also equally as effective as an introduction to swimming lessons, or on a "one-off" basis to brush up on skills previously learned.

Our Crash Courses are open to children who are already attending Swim Scheme courses and to those who are not.

Please click Lessons and Courses to see the descriptions of the requirements for each swimming stage.

It is important to the success of the course that swimmers attend all of the lessons that they are booked on to.

Please note that some of these sessions may be filmed and images captured will be used for training purposes for both the trainee teachers and our own staff.  By attending these sessions you are agreeing to your child being filmed in this way.

Over the four sessions, fun activities and games will be used to introduce and develop diving skills.  The course will include underwater confidence, body awareness and work towards a crouch and plunge dive.  Suitable for swimmers in Stage 5 or higher.

Please note that goggles are not permitted at these sessions due to the risk of injury from head first entries.
