Swimming Lessons

Monday - Friday after School & Saturday Mornings. 

£65.00 x 10 week block of lessons

Drowning is still one of the most common causes of accidental death in children, so being able to swim is an essential life-saving skill. It’s important to remember that children who appear water confident are not always competent swimmers.

Other reasons why your child should learn to swim:

Swimming is lots of fun for people of all ages and children especially love getting in the water and enjoying themselves.

But it is not just fun, swimming also provides loads of health benefits which can help to keep your children healthy and happy at the same time:

  • Swimming keeps your child’s heart and lungs healthy, improves strength and flexibility, increases stamina and even improves balance and posture

Another great thing about swimming is that children of any age or ability can take part and it is more accessible for children with additional needs than almost any other sport.

  • Swimming provides challenges and rewards accomplishments, which helps children to become self-confident and believe in their abilities

  • Your child will have plenty of opportunities to make friends and grow in confidence

But health, fun, and confidence are not the only reasons why your child should learn to swim. Learning to swim also opens up the door to a range of other activities.

A few sports your child can only do if they can swim

  1. Kayaking

  2. Canoeing

  3. Scuba diving

  4. Surfing

  5. Triathlon

  6. Yachting.

Learning to swim is a skill that once learnt is rarely forgotten and it is open to people of all ages. 

Group lessons are less expensive than private lessons and they work well when conducted by a good and experienced swimming teacher who has control over the class and gets the best out of their pupils.

Group lessons can be a great source of socialising with peers and learning through imitation. Being part of a group is a source of fun and motivation, reduces the risk of boredom and dropping out of swimming.

 We work alongside the STA`s (Swimming Teacher Association) badge scheme from starting the starfish awards at just a few months old right through to the most advanced award - Platinum at high school age. 

All of our teachers at Carnforth are highly qualified and knowledgeable in their field and have a passion to teach, educate and pass on their love for swimming to each and every child that come through the door. 

Our mainstream lessons start at age 4years, for anything younger please see our 3-year-old lessons or parent and child lessons pages. 

For more information or to find the best day/time to suit you, don`t hesitate to give the pool a call.
