lessons

You can learn to swim at any age! We offer swim classes for all age groups from age 3 years through to adults. All of our lessons are taught by qualified instructors who will help to develop confidence both in and around the water. Our lessons follow the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme. This uses fun and games to take children from their first splash to full competence in the pool and will ultimately help your child develop confidence in the water.

You can use our booking form to book onto lessons.  Please email completed forms to BrookvaleRecreationCentre@halton.gov.uk

 

Group Lessons

We follow the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme which guides your child through seven clearly defined stages, with badges to gain along the way. After the seven stages are completed your child can progress onto the Aquatic Skills stages 8-10. Our internet based Home Portal system allows you to access information about your child’s swimming lessons including:

  • Your child’s performance against the key competencies for their course level, e.g. Swim 25m efficient backstroke.
  • A rating from the teacher on how they are doing against this competency, e.g. Needs practice / Fair / Good
  • Notification of when your child is ready to move up a level and the ability to choose from the available times for your child to move into
  • Record of all assessments and pass dates for each level

Adult Lessons

If you have a fear of the water, can’t get your face wet or panic just thinking about the deep end then it’s easy to think swimming is not for you. If you learn to swim you can have fun in the water with your friends, children and grandchildren and make a splash in the water whilst on holiday. The important thing to know is that you are not alone. One in five adults across the country can’t swim – but it’s never too late to learn. Most pools offer adult classes in a friendly and supportive environment. If you are unsure about starting lessons, ask if you can watch a class or two to get a better idea of whether it’s for you, or ask to speak with one of our instructors. Most lessons take things at a slow pace – starting off with teaching you to how to stand up and regain your feet, float and swim without fear before being taught specific strokes. The best thing to do is contact us for information on our lessons for all ages.
