Junior Swimming

Children on our learn to swim programme paying by direct debit qualify for FREE casual swimming Monday – Sunday all year round!

Lessons for 4 – 16 year olds.

Children from the age of 4 can enter stage one of our learn to swim programme. Children  joining from stage two upwards will be required to complete an ability assessment. Our  instructors conduct lessons from the poolside where possible, enabling better observation and ensuring all children receive the same level of interaction. Lessons are taught using a wide array of fun and interactive activities. Delivery through this method enables children to use and combine new skills in an enjoyable environment resulting in an increased rate of learning. Swimmers can progress at their own pace and will move up to the next stage as soon as they have passed the relevant criteria. We use continual assessment to record the progress of your child. This is recorded by instructors in real time via Ipads. These assessments will be uploaded weekly and are available at writhlington.courseprogress.co.uk

Children under the age of 11 must be accompanied to their sports lesson by their parent or guardian. Children attending lessons will not be released from our care in the absence of their parent or guardian; we would therefore strongly advise that you remain on site incase of any emergency so we can contact you quickly and that you arrive at least 5 minutes prior to the end of your child’s lesson.
