It’s crucial that children gain the skills and confidence to swim from an early age, skills that can allow them to be accomplished swimmers in adult life, as swimming is seen by most experts as one of the best forms of exercise. It also encourages youngsters to enjoy the benefits of exercise from an early age.
The Sports Trek Swim School runs over four midweek days during school term time.
The Swim School over four midweek days during school term time and due to popular demand, since September 2013 we've also ran sessions on Saturday and Sundays. Our swim school lessons are delivered towards our own Sports Trek Swim Awards. These are based loosely on The National Swim Plan, although we believe that the Sports Trek awards allows children to develop more at their own pace, and have less stress based on completing stages and achieving certificates.

It involves the stages being split into three sections:
  • Swim improvement,
  • Skill developing and
  • Safety awareness.
Children can start lessons as young as four. However it is important that parents take their children to a pool regularly from babies to toddlers.

At Sports Trek we offer a free taster session to children prior to enrolment. At these sessions it becomes clear which children have been swimming regular with parents. It’s great for their development to feel at home in the water, and easiest to do as young as possible before any fear emotions can develop. These taster sessions allow us to asses the child's swimming ability and direct them towards the best lesson for them.
