This February half-term; be inspired by the Pool of Champions

Across February half-term at the London Aquatics Centre there will be a special programme running to help keep the kids entertained.

Activities will include the sell-out inflatable Aqua Splash and Extreme Aqua Splash sessions suitable for children and adults alike, and short-term swimming and diving lessons that offer a chance to learn new skills or improve existing ones, in partnership with the ASA.

The jam-packed half-term holiday programme will run from Monday 13th February through to Sunday 19th February. Whether you’re looking for a family day-out or want to improve swimming or diving skills then the ‘Pool Of Champions’ has something for everyone.

There will be three ‘Extreme Aqua Splash’ sessions in the Olympic Competition Pool every weekday at 9:30am, 11:30am and 13:30pm from Monday 13th February to Friday 17th February as well as three sessions on Sunday 19th February at 12:00pm, 14:00pm and 16:00pm.

Two ‘Aqua Splash’ sessions in the Training Pool will run on Saturday 18th February at 13:30pm and 15:30pm. Tickets for the Aqua Splash and Extreme Aqua Splash sessions start from £5 per child and £7.50 per adult. A range of special short-courses will be running throughout the half term break to help you or your children learn new skills or improve existing ones.

Taking place from Monday 13th February through to Friday 17th February, courses run for five consecutive days from Monday - Friday and include swimming lessons and Tom Daley Diving Academy courses.
