Don’t miss our Children’s Swimming Course this summer!
5th July, 2023

Children and young teenagers can improve their swimming skills with our friendly, experienced coaches during the summer.

We’re running our popular four-day intensive swimming courses in our fantastic pool for a range of abilities from:

  • Monday 24th – Thursday 27th July
  • Monday 31st – Thursday 3rd August
  • Monday 14th – Thursday 17th August
  • Tuesday 29th August – Friday 1st September

Everyone taking part will be awarded with a certificate and swim hat to mark their achievements.

The 30-minute sessions for youngsters aged between 4 and 16 will run between 9am and 10am each day, and will focus on two abilities – beginners and intermediate:

  • Beginners 9:00-9:30am – working though basic swimming skills, such as front crawl backstroke, floating and general water confidence (Barrow Park swimmers on levels 1, 2 and 3).
  • Intermediate 9:30-10:00am – for swimmers who can swim 10 meters front crawl and backstroke looking to develop further into breaststroke and butterfly (Barrow Park swimmers on level 4+).

Limited spaces are available!

The price to attend for the 4 days is £27 per swimmer.

You can book places at reception, or by phone on 01229 871 146. Booking is available until the morning of the first day, although places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so don’t delay!
