Pioneer run a comprehensive Learn to Swim (LTS) section from Accrington Academy swimming pool. We take swimmers from the age of 4. Under certain circumstances younger swimmers are considered, providing they have prior experience of swimming instruction and can meet the required entry criteria.
Our main focus is to progress swimmers through to competition level. In order to achieve this swimmers in the Learn to Swim groups will often have ratios of at least 1 to 4 to help them progress at the required rate.
We follow the National Teaching stages 1-10 although the standard expected to progress through is more strict than some other LTS lesson programs.
