Junior Section

Our Aims

Teaching swimmers

We aim to take beginner/novice swimmers and through our Teaching Plan develop them into potential club swimmers by concentrating on the four basic swimming strokes with the emphasis on good technique at all stages.  We pride ourselves on teaching in small groups of normally 6/7 swimmers; group size increases when the swimmers progress to the 1 hour length groups.

To help assist children who are 'beginners' we also have helpers to assist the teachers.  Our helpers are either current or former competitive swimmers of the Club.  

We offer different lessons to fit with the swimmers ability, using both the small shallow pool and the main pool for both widths and lengths groups.

We take swimmers through from complete beginner to Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards and all stages and distances in between.

All our teachers are ASA/AST qualified and DBS checked.
