Learn to swim
Achieving my next badge
Learning to swim is an essential life skill.
If you can swim you can enjoy all of the exciting activities that the water has to offer. We offer lessons for all ages and all of our lessons are taught by qualified teachers. We work to the National Governing Body for Swimming’s (ASA) Learn to Swim Pathway in all of our sessions.
Sessions are aimed at babies and toddlers aged between 0-5 years old and aim to build the foundation for a lifelong love of water. Children 0 - 36 months require an adult to participate in lessons with them. From 3 years children will be in the water on their own.
Swimming Lessons for School Age Children
Seven stages of fun and exciting lessons developing all of the skills needed for children to be competent, confident and safe in the water.
Aquatic Skills Lessons
When your child has completed stage 7 of the Learn to Swim Pathway they will have the opportunity to choose from a number of other aquatic activities such as; Competitive Swimming, Rookie Lifesaving, Synchronised Swimming and Water Polo. (Please note, activities vary between sites).
Adult Swimming Lessons
Adult lessons are available for all abilities whether you have a fear of the water, haven’t been swimming since school or if you want to refine your technique ready for an event.
Children's SEND Lessons
In partnership with Epping Forest District Council we offer specialised SEND sessions. A quieter environment, with limited numbers. If your child is nervous of coming along to a normal public session or finds them just a little to noisy, then this is the session for you!
The session is attended by a fully qualified teacher who is on hand to give helpful guidance and advice to you and your child in order to build their confidence in the water.
- Saturdays 4.30-5.30pm
£2.60 per child. (Carer goes FREE)
Additional siblings £2.60 (space permitting)
Additional parent £4.60 (space permitting)

Intensive Holiday Courses
