We have the one of the largest children’s group swimming lesson programmes in the south east and our lessons are extremely popular. Our syllabus follows the Swim Ireland Child Learn to Swim Programme. Our team of swim teachers specialise in teaching children to swim and take immense pride in bringing swimmers who join as complete novices through each programme level as they grow into skilful and proficient young swimmers.

'Ducklings' is a six week programme for three to five year olds, designed to give very young children confidence and independence in the water.
