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 issued with a swim hat, free of charge, which they are required to wear during each lesson.

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.

Join our Swim Academy

If you have registered an interest in joining the Academy, we will advise you of an available space and make you a provisional offer.

The parent or guardian can go online to set up a direct debit.

Once the direct debit has been set up, please email 2rmAdmin@bcpcouncil.gov.uk to confirm you have done this.

We will then confirm the start date for your child's swimming lessons.

We recommend that all customers read our pool guidelines prior to visiting our swimming pool.

Wet 'n' Wild

Come along to our Wet 'n' Wild sessions and you can enjoy the floats, balls and inflatable obstacle course in our swimming pool.

A separate ticket must be purchased for this session. The pool will close to the public 10 minutes before the session starts.

Wet 'n' Wild is not included in Pass-Sport for Youth.

The inflatable will only go in the pool if there are enough children attending the session.

Children must be able to swim 25 metres in deep water to be able to go on the inflatable.

Wet 'n' Wild is for children aged 8-16 only. Adults are not permitted.

Session price: £4.15

Swimming guidelines

Staying COVID Secure whilst swimming at Two Riversmeet

Do not come to the facility if you are showing any symptoms of COVID-19 - a temperature, a cough, difficulty breathing, or the loss of taste or smell.

At the facility:

  • use hand sanitiser stations wherever they are available
  • check in at the reception
  • this system has been extended throughout poolside.

While swimming:

  • 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
  • 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
  • do not make physical contact with other participants
  • 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 social distance between yourself and another swimmer.

Please follow the directional lane signs, swimming anti-clockwise. Move across to the appropriate side of the lane for each length.

Wide strokes such as butterfly should be avoided when the lanes become busy. 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 swim, 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, turning your head away and allowing others to maintain social distancing measures.

Stay hydrated by bringing your own pre-filled water bottle on to poolside during your swim.

People of different standards and abilities will use the pool. Please respect their right to enjoy their swim.

Spend as little time as possible on the poolside, whilst maintaining safe levels of distance.

Those who are high risk or shielding should follow the medical guidance issued to them at all times.

Please contact us in advance if you require the use of disabled facilities, including disabled changing and pool pods or hoists. This will avoid multiple users needing to use the disabled facilities at the time time, and allow time of the changing facilities and equipment to be cleaned before they may be needed again.
