Dive into the action at Tendring's swim school - It's splashing fun for everyone!

Learning to swim can be challenging and fun for both children and adults. We offer an extensive programme of swimming courses for all ages.

Tendring's swim schools at Dovercourt swimming pool, Clacton Leisure Centre and Frinton and Walton swimming pool have run successful learn to swim schemes for several years. During this time a flexible programme has been developed that can cater for children from the age of three and a half through to adults of all ages. The scheme has developed comprehensively and is run by fully qualified ASA teachers. It is a progressive scheme following syllabuses outlined by the Amateur Swimming Association.

Duckling Classes cater for 3 and a half to 5 years old, where they are introduced to aspects of water safety whilst reducing the use of buoyancy aids, learning through play.

Beginners Classes commence at 5 years old. During time spent with us participants can progress from Beginners Class, level 1 to Advanced level 12 gaining a range of awards from the Amateur Swimming Association. Please see the current lesson criteria as stated by the ASA.
