Swimming Lessons & Swim Academy

From children to adults, beginner to competitive swimmer, Fitness 4 U can provide the swimming class for you. Children follow the Swim England certificate ladder with Fitness 4 U bespoke certificates awarded in between. This guarantees that your child will receive a certificate of some description twice yearly whether they attain the next stage or not. Introduced in 2006, the top children are invited to join the swim academy which is a transfer over from the 'learn to swim' programme onto an introduction to competitive swimming programme. Here the children still work on technique, but a large part of the classes are stamina based and race based to ascertain which children may have the promise of making it further in the competitive swimming world. Twice yearly all children in the swim school are invited to take part in our swimming gala. There are races for all abilities including non swimmers. All children receive loud cheers and there are medals for every competitor not just for those that come 1st, 2nd or 3rd.

Parent & Baby/Toddler Swimming Classes

For children aged 0-2 years

Parent and Baby classes are fun and friendly, aimed at building water confidence and skills through nursery rhymes and play in the water. The advantages of learning through the parent and baby class is that the basic swimming skills are learnt before any fear of water can develop. With the emphasis on fun, the children learn that water and swimming is fun from a very early age. By attending the parent and baby class, the children get used to the swimming environment with the comfort of having their parent in the water with them. By the time they move onto the preschool lessons, they are ready to move on without their parents. It is very noticeable that the children who have attended the parent and baby classes are much more advanced than those who start at a later age.

Swim School

For children 3 years upward.

For those children who have been through the Parent and Baby/Toddler course there is a natural progression into the mainstream Swim School. Once they reach their 3rd birthday they can move up into the preschool lessons without their parents. With their inbuilt confidence and new found freedom they are able to further investigate the wonders of water, and go from strength to strength. All lessons in the swim school are designed to be fun while teaching correct techniques and skills. Nervous swimmers, and those with specific needs will all benefit from the expert teaching in the swim school. Any child over 3 years will be welcomed into the swim school providing there are spaces available. They will be slotted into the correct group dependent on their previous swimming experiences (if any) and ability. All the children are treated as individuals, but have the fun of being in a group environment. One to one and one to two lessons are available from 3 years upwards. These lessons are more intense, so are kept to a 15 minute duration. However, 30 minute lessons are available. The advantage of having a one to one lesson is that the lesson can be geared around the child, to work on their weaknesses, so they become a balanced swimmer

Whatever your age, it is never too late to start, and you can always improve your technique and fitness through swimming.
