Swimming at Aston-Cum-Aughton Leisure Centre

Learn to save lives

Swimming lessons at Aston-Cum-Aughton Leisure Centre 

Learning to swim isn’t just a life skill, it’s a rite of passage to a new lease on life. And with over 240,000 children missing out on learning to swim due to the pandemic, there's never been a more important time to take to the water.

Water can be fun and enjoyable when care is taken, however drowning is still the third highest cause of accidental death in children in the UK. Swimming is the only sport that saves lives, but having the swimming and water safety awareness to save yourself or others doesn’t come instinctively, it has to be taught. Sadly, many fatal drownings involve young people who misjudge their own swimming ability, or have little or no awareness of the dangers of water. 

Our four key water safety messages specifically for swimming are: 

• Always swim in safe place. 

• Always swim with an adult

• If you fall in, float, breathe, relax

• If someone else is in trouble call 999/112

Our team follows the Swim England Learn to Swim Framework to deliver swimming lessons. We use fun and games to build water confidence from the first splash to a lifetime of loving swimming and being safe in the water.
