Learning to swim is a key life skill for anyone of any age, and we are proud to deliver over 117,500 lessons across our centres each year to children and adults in South Kesteven.
The LeisureSK Swim School follows the Swim England Learn to Swim programme, the industry-leading programme for delivering safe, inclusive and effective swimming lessons for all ages.
For us, it doesn't matter if you are 3 or 83, learning to swim gives you or your child the ability to get yourself/themselves out of potentially life-threatening situations and for the whole family to enjoy beach/pool holidays to the full.
Our weekly classes start with our parent & baby sessions and pre-school classes developing water confidence and then move into the main Stage 1-7 programmes as your child starts school.
Our lessons cover all four main strokes (front crawl, breast-stroke, butterfly and backstroke) and also include the water skills to ensure confidence and comfort in the water. Water safety is an integral part of our swimming programme to ensure that children are also aware of the potential dangers around water.
From stage 8 onwards we offer children a range of options to further their interests and aquatic journey. We do this by offering a pathway into local community clubs including competitive swimming, Rookie lifeguard, and water polo.
We encourage everyone on our swimming lesson programme to enjoy the water outside of their set lessons so everyone who Learns to Swim with us receives free swimming sessions as a benefit of their Swim School membership.
Across our three centres we have over 3500 children and adults learning with us. We are an experienced team, with a love of the water, and we are passionate about helping others to become confident and competent swimmers.
