Angelfish Swimmers Courses

At Angelfish Swimmers we offer swimming courses for children aged 3 years plus, which run concurrently with the academic year.

The Angelfish Swimmers approach
  • Our courses develop water confidence and an understanding of water safety whilst introducing children to all four strokes.

  • Our aim is to create a relaxed and fun learning environment and we keep our class sizes small so that we can give our swimmers individual attention.

  • We take great care when grouping our swimmers into classes, matching children of similar ability so that we can really tailor our courses to their needs. 

  • We choose to teach in warm pools which make them ideal for beginner and intermediate levels.

  • Each course is progressive and we follow the STA accredited award system.

Pre-school courses

Angelfish Swimmers pre-school courses are limited to three children with the teacher in the water and a carer poolside. We plan each lesson to be fun and interactive which we balance with structured tuition. We use a variety of teaching practices and aids in the water, including woggles, kick boards and back floats as well as a range of toys such as floaters and sinkers! We do on occasions use arm rings and back floats to increase confidence and for specific skills such as floating and achieving improved body position.

Courses for children of 4 years and over

Angelfish Swimmers courses for children of four and over are limited to four children with the teacher in the water. Each class is structured with a warm up, main teaching theme and a game/wind down activity to finish. At the end of each course all children will receive a badge and certificate to reflect their hard work, achievements and the fun they have had in the pool!

Trial for new starters

We like to get all new starters in the water before they are booked onto a course of lessons with Angelfish Swimmers. These one to one sessions are designed to help younger children with the transition from mother and baby style lessons to them swimming solo! The trial will cover health and safety issues, an assessment of their confidence and generally check that they are ready to swim without Mum/Dad in the water. A swim trial is equally important for older children to ensure they are grouped appropriately in terms of their ability, technique and stamina.
