Learn to swim in a clean, safe pool with ASA qualified instructors. Our small groups make learning easier

We offer swimming lessons at our Chelmsford gym to babies from 12+ weeks, right through to people of retirement age.

Our child swimming lessons are for children up to 4 years of age accompanied by an adult in the water. The lessons introduce water confidence and early swimming skills (with the use of a variety of swimming aids) through song and play.

We also offer pre-school swimming lessons for children aged from 2½ years for the more confident children. These classes are offered in small groups (max 6) with the teacher in the water to help develop your child's swimming skills.

Our after-school lessons for children 4+ years builds on these foundation skills and follows the ASA (Amateur Swimming Association) Awards Scheme. These classes progress from the small pool into the deeper water of the fast lane.
