We believe that everyone should learn to swim and that it should be fun.
We offer swimming lessons for babies from 4 months old to three years, which follow the ASA Learn to Swim Framework giving them everything they need to feel comfortable and confident in the water.
Our Swim school uses the ASA Learn to Swim Pathway a nationally recognised scheme, which will help your child work towards everything they need to be skilled and confident in the water.
Our qualified instructors will boost your child’s confidence and motivate them through every stage of their Learn to Swim journey.
Each stage has a different aim and set of skills that your child will develop through their 30-minute weekly lessons. As your child improves and becomes more confident, they will move up to the next stage.
Our lessons run continually throughout the year and even better when you apply, you'll be able to enjoy a host of amazing benefits:
£18 monthly Direct Debit, running for 39 weeks of the year.
Due to the popularity of the Get In! Swim School programme at Riverside Leisure Centre we are currently unable to accept any further customers onto our waiting lists for all swimming lessons (Discovery Ducklings, Ducklings, Juniors (Stages 1 – 7) and Adults).
We aim to re-open our waiting lists from late 2019.
