What we Do…..
At Fins Swim School, we believe correct technique should be encouraged throughout the levels so we set high standards for all our pupils.
Swimming, when taught correctly, can develop good motor skills, agility, balance, co-ordination, strength and fitness. It will also help your child succeed in any other sporting activities. As well as being a life skill, learning to swim can be a life saver, which will offer peace of mind to you as a parent.
We use the ASA swim awards scheme. Children are tested every 10th week so both you and your child can monitor progress. Little ones start at Ducklings level, learning the basics of water confidence through play. Our teachers encourage your child to ENJOY the water so that swimming should come easier later on After all, if they are having fun they are going to want to come back!
After the Duckling awards, children move onto the ASA stages, interspersed with various other awards. distance swims, stroke distance ( where correct technique is most important) personal survival, challenges and ROOKIE lifeguard awards. This gives your child plenty of variety keeps them interested in an activity that will give them pleasure hopefully for life.
Our swimming lessons run all year round, we only break for Christmas, Easter and bank holidays or if the pool is closed for maintenance.
