These classes are limited to a maximum of 10 participants. This ensures you get the greatest benefit from each lesson. Group swimming sessions run for 6 weeks.

Class Guidelines, what level is right for me?


Suitable for adults who have never swam before or have little swimming experience. Swimming freestyle and backstroke will be the main focus of lessons.


This level is aimed at improving your stroke and kicking technique and the introduction of breaststroke. To move to this level its recommended that swimmers should be able to swim 50 Meters freestyle comfortably.

All beginner swimmers will be given the choice to book into our next improvers course to continue their development.
