Swimming lessons beginners start by learning the basics of floating in the water and incorporate strokes while being supported by foam floating tools. At the end of this course, you will be able to do the four basic strokes including crawl, breaststroke, backstroke, and butterfly.


The intermediate level swimming courses focus on technique including positions off the block, wall turns, and pacing strategies.


Advanced swimming lessons cover levels 6+ of the ASAs swimming framework, which will see pupils develop and refine their skills, including breathing and stroke techniques. This will also put you in a great position should you wish to take your swimming to a professional level.
