Why Choose Quackers
We offer lessons for any age from the age of 6 months through to Adults, so don’t hesitate in booking a place. Our class sizes are smaller meaning the children get a more focused lesson, and the non- swimmer classes have the teachers in the water.
Children with Special Needs
Where possible children with special needs will be integrated into mainstream lessons.
Adult and Child
These classes are designed to initiate and give confidence to both the parent and child in a pool environment. Water confidence is built up with the use of toys and songs during the lessons. These lessons are also ideal for babies from six months to three years. Lessons run throughout the week.
Pre-School Ducklings & Beginners
These lessons are for children from three years upwards and structured so that the child learns the basics of swimming. There is a maximum of eight in a group with a teacher and an assistant in the water. Many children are swimming before they go to full time school. Parents do not need to go in the water with their children. The benefits of these lessons are not only confidence in the water, but also in group situations and enhanced social skills. Lessons run through out the week and at certain times at the weekend.
Lessons to build on the skills and strokes gained in the beginner levels. Strokes are enhanced technically; stamina builds up as technique improves. These swimmers will improve their swimming from 15 to 200 metres again with increasing technical ability. By building on technical ability over a short distance longer distances are easily achievable.
The advanced groups will work longer distances with harder practises to increase strength, stamina and technique. They will build up stamina from 200 metres to a mile of good swimming in four strokes. Personal Survival Skills will also be taught to increase the knowledge about the dangers of open water. These skills can then be transferred to club swimming or other water sports such as water polo, sailing, rowing and canoeing.
Children learn the basics of lifesaving within Rookies. There a 3 awards to be gained within the Bronze, Silver and Gold awards. Children will become confident in water safety knowledge and lifesaving skills and continue to get good fitness with swimming. A fun session that is great for children not wanting to continue with simply swimming and also learn new skills.
Our Adult lessons are suitable for all abilities, from the adult that is looking for stroke improvement to the adult that has a fear of water. The lessons are run in a very relaxed manner and cater for your individual needs. We also run a swim fit session which is for adults that are wanting to swim for fitness, maybe training for a triathlon.
We have mixed male and female lessons available or Ladies only. Contact us for more information or come along to have a look, we guarantee you’ll love it
