Swimming Lessons

Group & Individual Lessons

Let's make a splash

At Westwoods, we recognise the importance of teaching children to swim at an early age and therefore offer our members a choice of either attending within a group (up to 8:1) or private lessons (1:1, 2:1 or 3:1). Many adults also take advantage of our private 1:1 lessons for stroke development or to simply build water confidence for the weak or non-swimmer.

Swim Stars

01

Swim Stars group lessons are run by the club for 3.5-year-olds and beyond and last for 30 minutes on Monday afternoons and Saturday mornings. The Swim Stars program is managed by our swimming co-ordinator, who will assist you through the enquiry and registration process. Once on the Swim Stars programme, children follow a curriculum and work through a set of levels starting as a tadpole and graduating as a shark. Please see below for the current block dates.

Build Confidence

We understand that getting into the water for the first time can be a daunting experience, which is why our instructors are always on hand to support both parents and children as they take up this new life skill. Lessons start easily by teaching children to put their heads under water and build up to teaching skills such as stroke development in later stages.

Swim Stars - Essential Information

Swim Stars swimming lessons are held on Saturdays and Mondays and are made up of three blocks within the academic year.

Choose your preferred day, either Saturday or Monday

Private Swimming
Lessons

02

Private swimming lessons are offered by Karina, Jennie and Natasha on a self-employed basis and they are able to provide 1:1, 2:1 and 3:1 30-minute lessons. Unlike group lessons organised by the club, the instructors organise their own schedules during time slots made available to them on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Why not take the opportunity to relax and enjoy a coffee or a bite to eat in our cafe while your little one is enjoying their swimming lesson? You can also take advantage of our pre-order service to order a meal or snack to be ready when your child finishes their lesson, which they can eat in the cafe or take away as part of our grab & go service.

Private Lessons - Essential Information
