WHAT WE OFFER
Why choose us?
We promote happiness and enjoyment in swimming in a success-filled environment at every level within our programme.
We teach small groups of children, from complete beginners to advanced swimmers on the verge of competitive training!
Swimmers can join us at any stage of the year. We invite new swimmers to a free lesson / swim assessment (except pre school stages).
We use a swim school software that enables parents to see their childs personal development and also top up classes online, you will also receive information via email through this system to ensure you never miss out on information from Southern Swim School.
Our pre-school lessons are designed to develop water confidence in children from the age of 3 up until starting primary school. Children will learn basic skills including kicking, arm action and putting their face in the water all the skills that are needed to learn the four strokes. Pre-school lessons are an ideal introduction to swimming before moving onto Junior Lesson Programme.
Our Junior lessons are ideal for children of primary school age. The aim is to develop technique and skill across all of the common strokes. Water confidence and awareness of safety is also a primary focus of lessons. This is a great way to help inspire our children to lead healthier active lifestyles. Lessons take place in 30 minute slots on weekday evenings and Saturday mornings during school-term time.
