Wave Swimming Lessons

In Wave sessions the child is in the water without the parent and they work through the waves as they progress.

We also have one to one swimming lessons.

These classes are on a Monday at 1:50pm, 2:25pm and 7pm, Tuesday at 11:50am and 12:25pm, Thursday at 7pm and Friday at 11:50am - all sessions last 30 minutes.
