Learn to Swim

Our Learn to Swim program is based at the Abbey Stadium where groups progress through the learner pool and into our Dolphin’s group in the main 6 lane 25m pool.

Our classes enable young swimmers to learn the basic techniques needed to swim the four strokes correctly. This important first stage of swimming is all about having a good time whilst learning to swim properly and confidently.

The Club operates a vibrant and successful learn to swim program which currently has over 100 members.

We have adopted the Swim England 'Learn to Swim Framework' and swimmers will be progressed through the Learner Pool sessions in to the 25 meter pool. Following the framework's guidelines swimmers will have the opportunity to gain both 'Stage' and 'Distance' awards/badges.

We pride ourselves on having smaller teaching groups, where swimmers will receive quality lessons from our qualified teaching team. As a club we also encourage some of our teenage swimmers from the competitive squads (who often will have qualifications as Assistant Swim Teachers or fully qualified Swim Teachers) to help teach and pass on their skills to the new emerging swimmers. This is a unique way of blending learning from highly experienced swim teachers with strong, enthusiastic competitive athletes.#

Children can start with us at 4½ years.

The Learn to Swim journey ends after  Stage 6 . It is here, the swimmers may possibly be invited for a trial with our Development Squad Coach and  possibly progress to the next levels with Redditch Swimming Club - introducing them to competitive swimming and leading them to join our squads that contain County, Regional, National and International Standard swimmers.
