Swimming is such an important life skill. We believe everyone should have the right to learn to swim, which is why we offer such competitive pricing for our lessons. Lessons run for 30 minutes each week and are well structured making sure that there is always progression.
Our lessons run for beginners and advanced swimmers. Whitings Swimming Academy follows the ASA Learn to Swim Pathway. This means that for our beginners we focus on water confidence and making the water fun and then move onto stroke technique on each of the four strokes. For advanced swimmers we really focus on stroke development and introducing skills for each of the disciplines of swimming (competitive swimming, diving, water polo, synchronised swimming and of course lifesaving techniques) while keeping the lessons fun and enjoyable.
Not only is learning to swim such an important life skill to have, but it also helps to increase intelligence, general confidence in life, improves strength and fitness and muscle co-ordination.
Below are the types of lessons we have to offer:
These lessons are for ages 3+. We keep the teacher to swimmer ratio low, so each child can reach their full potential within the lesson. Our teacher is in the water for beginner classes and for those that need more assistance. Groups are based on ability not age.
Private 1:1 + 2:1 lessons:
These lessons are from the ages of 2+ and are great for anyone who is particularly nervous or has a phobia of water and needs a little bit more help to progress. These lessons can also be used as a stroke development session for advanced swimmers.
We believe it is never too late to learn to swim, whether you are a complete beginner or just looking to improve your technique, we can help you get to the level that you want. Our highly qualified instructors are very understanding and patient and will never pressurise you into anything you are not ready to do. We offer adult lessons on a 1:1 session as a pay as you go basis
