Otters Learn to Swim (part of City of Southampton SC)

Update September 2021

Before attending Otters Learn to Swim all swimmers and any accompanying parents / guardians should complete our Covid 19 health declaration form found on this link CSSC Covid-19 Health Declaration Form.  This requirement is in line with guidance from Swim England.

Fun, Safe Learning:

We offer childrens' swimming lessons for beginners/non-swimmers; for children who wish to increase their confidence in water; and for those who wish to improve their stroke technique. All swimming lessons are taught by Swim England qualified teachers, under the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme. Class sizes are small so that each swimmer receives close attention and to encourage pupils' rapid swimming development.

Our aim is to:

‘Give children the opportunity to learn to swim by developing confidence and stroke technique in a structured, fun and safe environment’

We have an experienced team of either current swimmers from City of Southampton SC or swimmers who have hung up their goggles to form a structured: progressive and fun lesson scheme. This will get the best out of your child in both technique and confidence.

Lessons at Otters are competitively priced, paid termly. All lessons take place at Regents Park Community College:

Regents Park Community College
King Edward Avenue,
Shirley, Southampton,
SO16 4GW.

Information about the Team:
We are very lucky that many of our swimmer teachers have been through the journey from Learn to Swim to Competitive Swimming with City of Southampton SC or other clubs.  They all share a passion for teaching children to swim because they all know the many benefits, fun and enjoyment that come from being able to swim well.
