October 2021 - Learn 2 Swim crash course

Information on October Crash Courses

Intensive Crash Course

Swimming every day, even if it's only for a short period, can help a child to progress quickly with their swimming. Parents often comment that they can see their child's swimming develop before their eyes! The children build every day on what they're being taught the day before, and without the week's break of standard swimming programmes their recall is much better! A week on a intensive course is as much swimming as most children do in 5 weeks of term-time lessons so we often see their swimming improve swiftly.

All sessions are required to be booked online. FROM MONDAY 4th OCTOBER ONLY

Price £25
