Lane Swimming

Please view our Lane Swimming timetable at the top this page- you may need to scroll through the images to see the various timetables- we do run a different timetable during term time and school holidays.

Customers attending the lane swims must be able to swim 25m continuously and unaided. 

The pool will be split in to lanes marked with speeds, the general etiquette we request customers follow is: 

  • there will be a maximum of 6 people allowed per lane
  • choose your lane using the fast, medium and slow signs, and by watching those already swimming to judge the most appropriate lane for this visit. 
  • all swimmers must swim anti-clockwise
  • please do not overtake while swimming
  • before pushing off at each turn, check to see if anyone faster is approaching
  • if you are using equipment such as kick boards or pull buoys, consider moving to a slower lane temporarily, if there is space, so you do not hinder other swimmers taking full strokes.
  • always attempt to maintain appropriate distance between yourself and another swimmer.
  • Wide strokes such as butterfly may not be appropriate depending on how busy the session is.
  • If you change to a slower stroke as part of your session, think about moving lanes.
  • Whether stopping for a rest or catching your breath after completing your length, please be mindful that others using the lane will want to keep on swimming without stopping. Keep yourself to the edge of the lane allowing others to turn at the wall.
  • Please be respectful of all others in the session- everyone has a right to enjoy their swim within their own speed and ability.

There must be one adult to two children. It is recommended that non-swimmers wear arm bands.

Junior Swim Academy

Our swimming lessons are based on the National Plan for Teaching Swimming, a framework produced by the Amateur Swimming Association. Lessons run on a continuous basis with a 2 week break for Christmas and Easter.

Progress and skill development will be recorded during each lesson ensuring pupil abilities are continually monitored. When a swimmer meets the criteria of their current level they will be informed and be able to book onto the next level at reception, subject to availability.

All academy members will be required to wear a swim hat during their lessons. This can be purchased from Reception (£2.50), or you are welcome to buy your own from elsewhere.  

Our swimming groups are categorised.

Payment

Lessons must be paid for by direct debit with our great value for money Junior Swimming Membership. Prices start from just £28.40 per month, and are reviewed every April.
