Two boys and a girl sitting on poolside ready for their Crash Course Swim LessonsGive your child a skill for life!

If your child's water confidence needs a boost, Intensive Swim Lessons are here to help! We run the Intensive Swim Lessons to help them make rapid progress and maybe even master a specific stroke. These swimming lessons are held each April and August during the longer school holiday periods at Newton Abbot Leisure Centre and Dawlish Leisure Centre

What are Intensive Swim Lessons?

Our Intensive Swim Lessons will boost children's swimming skills, increase their confidence and help to keep them safe in the water. We all find some strokes and techniques easier to do than others and our courses are perfect for your child to work on their weaker elements and develop new techniques and skills.

Our instructors have bags of experience and energy to support them in their lessons to almost guarantee they'll learn a new skill and technique quickly during these fun, active and engaging lessons.

Intensive Swim Lessons are perfect for those looking to improve their swimming skills or for new swimmers looking to join our swim school. Book your space today:
