Children get to enjoy a fun, structured swimming session at a choice of open water locations – and learn all about how to stay safe in the water and what to do if something goes wrong.
The 60-minute session is run by qualified instructors and lifeguards, and includes:
- Open water safety advice provided on land
- Up to 30 minutes in-water tuition with qualified instructors
- All the right kit for swimming outdoors (including swimming hats, wetsuits, and flotation equipment)
- We want all children to have access to this training, so all Swim Safe sessions are free
Swim Safe is open to children aged 7-14. We provide both public access and school sessions.
To take part, they must be able to swim a minimum of 25 metres. This is usually achieved around Stage 4 of Swim England's Learn to Swim Pathway.
A parent or guardian must be present throughout the session.
All the dates and how to book are published on the SwimSafe website.
