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 Swim21 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 colour-coded swimming hats, for safety and hygiene reasons. This also denotes the level of ability of the swimmer within our award scheme, and to be recognised as part of Reading Swimming Club.  We supply every swimmer with a new hat when they start each level.

Our teaching programme is well structured to encourage progression to each level.  At the top of the teaching programme your child will be an efficient and competent swimmer. From here we encourage the swimmers to join the Reading Swimming Club training squads.

We run the programme from four different venues:

  • Highdown School, Emmer Green (Tuesday evening) Red hats levels 3 and above
  • Southcote Primary School (Wedensday evening) Red hats levels 1 to 5
  • Central Pool (Thursday evening)
  • Sonning Common Primary School (Friday evening) Red hats levels 1-3 only
  • Kendrick Girls' School (Saturday morning)

Our programme of lessons are structured to encourage progression from each level to the next as the swimmer improves.

Courses run from 10-14 weeks and are paid in advance. 

Red and Yellow hats lessons will run for 30 minutes. Green and Blue hats and Academy lessons run for 45 minutes. Swimfit and Adult lessons are 1 hours.

At the top end of our teaching programme we encourage swimmers to move into our training section - starting with the Development 4 Squad.

If interested, contact our Teaching Programme Coordinator for further information.

We look forward to hearing from you!

HAPPY SWIMMING!
