Reading Swimming Club Lessons
Learn to Swim with Reading Swimming Club
We welcome anyone interested in learning to swim or wanting to improve their strokes from the age of 4 up to adult. Our swimming teachers are well qualified and enthusiastic, with a genuine interest for the sport of swimming.
The club is very proud to be SwimMark accredited. This provides evidence that the club and its programs and policies has been scrutinised, and found to be current and up-to-date with all the required regulations and that it will continue to improve.
All our swimmers wear swimming hats, for safety and hygiene reasons. Swimmers will need to purchase RSC teaching programme hats through our Club Shop Red-Stages 1-3, White - Stages 4-6 and Black Stages 7 upwards including Academy, swimfit and Adults. These hats should be available to buy sometime on or after October 2021.
We run the Teaching Programme from four different venues:
- Highdown School, Emmer Green (Tuesday evening) Stage 3 and above
- Sonning Common Primary School (Friday evening) Stage 1-2 only
- Kendrick Girls' School (Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday morning) Stages 1-10 and Adult Lessons
- St Andrew's School, Pangbourne (Wednesday evening) Stages 1-10 and Adult Improvers.
Our programme of lessons are structured to encourage progression from each stage to the next as the swimmer improves. Lessons run during term time only and are payable on a monthly basis by standing order. Stages 1 - 6 lessons run for 30 minutes, Stages 7 - 9 run for 45 minutes and Academy sessions (Stage 10) run for 45 - 60 minutes. Swimfit and Adult lessons are 45 - 60 minutes.
From Stage 6, if your swimmer would like to take part in swimming competitions we encourage swimmers to move into our training section - starting with the Dev 4 Squad which is 2 sessions a week. Please see our 'Join Us' button on the home page or the 'Squad' tab for more details, or contact our Assistant Head Coach.
