At the Sean Kelly Sports Centre we pride ourselves in the knowledge that our School Swimming Lessons provide children with the opportunity to learn to swim in a fun, safe and positive environment. We believe that every child has the right to be safe and skilled in the water. Our aim for each child is to build life long skills which will ensure their continued enjoyment of the aquatic environment in its many forms. All of our swim instructors are highly qualified and aim to facilitate each individual to progress into a confident swimmer.
School group sessions are generally run over a seven to ten week period. We teach school children in groups according to the level/ability, at a ratio of 15 children per Swimming Instructor. On the first day each child is evaluated so that they can be placed in the appropriate group with the same ability. Each weekly session is 45 minutes. There are three pool levels at which lessons are carried out, the baby pool, the shallow end and deep end of the main pool. Each child moves up along the pool as their swimming ability and confidence in the water improves. These sessions are in high demand so please book well in advance to avoid disappointment.
