LESSON DATES

 

To improve the continuity of your child’s swimming lessons we run 50 weeks per year which include the Easter and summer holidays. There will be a two week break in swimming lessons over the Christmas holidays (between Saturday 23rd December 2017 to Friday 5th January 2018 inclusive. Lessons will return on Saturday 6th January 2018).

 

The benefits of continuous swimming lessons include:

 
  • Swimming is taught by repetition therefore no interruption of the child’s classes throughout the year enhances the learning process.

  • A child who has swimming lessons all year round will receive 25 hours of instructed swimming.

  • To maintain the level of skills and fitness of your child.

  • The more water access your child gains throughout the year, the better water skills and development they will have. Weekly exercise also sets good habits for later in life.

 

 

SWIMMING CRASH COURSES

 

During the school holidays there are also swimming crash courses (usually lasting 5 days) which are suitable for beginners aged 3+ years.  These are also a good way to introduce your child to regular swimming lessons. For details of these courses please see the Children’s School Holiday Activities section on the website.

HOW DO I ENROL MY CHILD?

 

Simply, contact reception at your preferred One Leisure site who will ask you to complete welcome pack forms.

 

Your child will then be offered any existing places or added to the relevant class waiting list (if applicable) or offered a free swimming assessment carried out by a Swimming Teacher to identify which class is most suitable.

 

You will then be contacted by your preferred site who will offer you a place.

 

Before starting, you must either make an upfront payment and complete Direct Debit forms for future payments or pay the first instalment of the block payments scheme.

If you wish to cancel your child’s swimming lessons you must contact us and complete a cancellation form.  We require one month’s written notice of cancellation.  No refunds will be given without a medical certificate.  If you pay by Direct Debit you will need to cancel your direct debit at the bank.
