From that first dip with you until they’re ready to jump in alone, Swimbies prepares your little ones for a lifetime of fun in the water.

To us, a child's emotional development is just as important as practical training. This is why our early-years programme features plenty of bonding time. The Swimbies syllabus should be seen as the start of a swimming journey. Built on eight essential skills, Swimbies sessions are designed to naturally develop the child's abilities and water confidence:

1. Safety skills
2. Holds
3. Buoyancy, flotation, and rotations
4. Swimming with an adult
5. Aquatic breathing
6. Buoyancy aids
7. Jumping and surface divers
8. Transition to swimming

Sessions are now available at Better Energise Leisure Centre
