Coaching and Courses
Whether you've never swum before, just starting out or more confident in the water, we can offer coaching to support you on your swim journey. We have Beginners' sessions where you can gain confidence and learn different strokes. More confident swimmers can develop their technique and fitness at our Stroke Development classes. Adults of all ages, including those over 60 years, are welcome.
Children will learn new skills, meet new people and stay healthy with our range of classes. Take to the water with classes for baby to pre-school and for children who are new to swimming or not yet swimming confidently over 5 metres unaided. Develop through our programme of classes from Beginner to Elite with ASN Beginners for children with additional needs.
Kids will have a ball at Mini-Kickers for pre-schoolers with fun, progressive sessions from Beginners providing top quality coaching for children building on basic football skills and developing technique to Intermediate, progressing as children grow their understanding of the game and put into practice their skills. For children showing promise that want to take their footballing skills further we have a more technical development course that still retains a fun element.
Tots Tennis provides a fun introduction to tennis for players aged 3 to 5 years accompanied on court by parent/helper while Mini Tennis introduces players to basic tennis hitting and movement skills as children's tennis skills progress from Red balls (5 to 7 years) to Orange balls (8 to 9 years) and then Green balls (10 years).
Starting young, Gym Nippers Parent and Toddler classes are for children aged 18 months to 3 years with our focus to improve coordination and motor skills through song, dance and movement and we have Gymnastics from 5 years through to teens.
While your child is booked into one of our programmes, it's a great opportunity for you to stay active and take advantage of reduced prices in our pool or gym.
