AcademySport Swim School follows the teaching principles set out by the National Plan for Teaching Swimming, we deliver each stage as set out by the Amateur Swimming Association [ASA], and all children are certified at completion of each of our 7 stages, click here for details.
Our ‘parent and toddler’ sessions encourage early years swimmers to develop basic motor skills through enjoyment of the water.
Fundamental movement skills which build confidence, buoyancy, stroke technique and safety awareness can then be developed from stages 1-7 of our Swim School courses.
We liaise with many swim clubs so that swimmers of appropriate standard can be put straight in contact with a club for fundamental sport skills and more competitive training.
To apply for a place please download our SwimSchool application form and hand it in at Reception. We give children (aged 5–16) enrolled on a course free swimming membership for the duration of the Swim School term so they can practise their new skills as much as they like!
