Swimming strokes such as freestyle and backstroke are an important part of swimming. However it’s vital your children learn personal survival skills, not for just the pool, but rivers, lakes and the ocean. With YMCA Swimming Lessons, your child will learn these important lifesaving skills to ensure they are safe around water.

Being a member of our swim school allows students to have access to the pool outside of lesson times, accompanied by one adult and they will also receive merchandise discounts. Our nationally accredited teachers give you regular feedback on progress, and a certificate after your child completes each level.

YMCA Swimming lessons for the 2018/2019 season

Our lessons for the 2018/2019 summer season will start on the week beginning November 5th 2018, and run through to week ending April 6th 2019, with a 6-week break over the December/January school holidays.  There will be 16 lessons in total over the entire season and lessons will be paid for via a fortnightly direct debit over the whole 5 months of the season.

We have a range of classes available, from beginners to advanced, from toddlers to adults.  We will have something suitable for you / your child, with our classes running initially on Monday and Wednesday afternoons and a Saturday morning.

Bookings for the swimming lessons will open in October, so contact the centre to organise an assessment or to book into a class after this date. Bookings into a class will only be confirmed once the necessary paperwork and required fees have been paid.  Bookings are strictly on a first in first served basis.
