No matter what age or level we can develop swimming skills for any individual in any stroke. Using games children can develop fundamental aquatic skills. Once they have achieved all the required outcomes, children can transfer to competition swimming or rookie lifesaving classes
There are swimming lessons in both pools with classes for beginners, improvers and advanced swimmers. Booking is preferable but not essential, to contact the pool to book please use the contact details which can be found in the ‘Contact’ tab.
Our swimming lessons are in line with the Swim England Pathway. This is a comprehensive integrated and progressive teaching programme based on technical and educational principles.
Water aerobics, or aquafit, usually combines a variety of techniques from gym-based aerobic classes and includes walking or running backward and forward, jumping jacks, along with various arm movements. Your workout will also use equipment such as flotation belts and flotation devices.
In addition to the standard benefits of any exercise, the use of water in water aerobics supports the body and reduces the risk of muscle or joint injury. There is less stress on your joints when stretching and you have a greater range of movement. Its fun and it’s good for you.
Swimming is great for babies and children of all ages. Aquababes classes are a fun, safe environment. Please check the latest Heights pool programme for up-to-date times for Aquababes sessions.
If you are not sure if this is for you and your baby, come along and see. Our teachers are happy to answer any questions you have, please use the ‘Send a Message’ tab which you can find via the ‘Contact’ tab at the top of this page.
Aquababes is suitable from birth to four years, although it’s advisable that your baby has had their inoculations. During school holidays, children up to age seven are welcome if accompanying a parent with a pre-school sibling. All babies must wear swim nappies which are available to purchase from reception.
