Give your child a skill for life! 

If your child's water confidence needs a boost, swimming intensive lessons are here to help! We run the intensive 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. 

Included in the Jam Packed Junior Membership. Not a Jam Packed Junior Member? You can Pay Per Intensive Course or upgrade to a Jam Packed Junior Membership. 

What are intensive swim lessons? 

Our intensive 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 intensives 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 our lessons to almost guarantee they'll learn a new skill and technique quickly during these fun, active and engaging lessons.

For more information, please speak with your instructor or drop our swim team an email on swimlessons@teignbridge.gov.uk
