Norwich Swan Swimming Club

Swan Summer Swim Courses

Swan Holiday Swimming Courses are suitable for children aged 4 years* and over. The intensive courses and holiday lessons are an ideal opportunity for children to top up their skills or start learning to swim during the school holidays in a fun and safe environment.  After a long period in the last year where pools have been closed this is an opportunity to learn a vital life skill while also having fun!
 
All of our lessons are taught by ASA or STA qualified swimming teachers  and are based on the national plan for teaching Swimming as recommended by Swim England.   As per Swim England guidelines all involved adults have a current DBS check and safeguarding training.
 
We are offering 5 day courses at various locations and also Saturday lessons during August at Norwich High School for Girls. (NHSG)
 
*Minimum age of 4 years as of 01/09/2021
 
We are also running Summer Swim clinics in August for Squad level swimmers, aged up to 12 years old, at Hewett Academy Pool.   The clinics are open to both club and non club members.  To participate swimmers should be able to swim 50m+ and be safe in deep water.   Swan Learn to Swim swimmers who are eligible to transition to Squad swimming in September (Have passed stage 5)  may also participate.  Details of the Squad clinics can be found here

Changing Rooms:

Use of the changing rooms will depend on Swim England COVID guidelines at the time of the course.

If changing rooms are in use: If a child is of an age where help is required from a parent then the parent/guardian must use the correct changing room for their own sex/gender and their child should accompany them.  Once children are Aged 8, we expect them to change unassisted without parents in the changing rooms.  This is for the privacy of older children who may feel uncomfortable with adults present.

If a child requires additional specific assistance this should be addressed with the teacher at the start of the course.

Please refrain from taking any photographs in the pool and changing areas.  Mobile phones should remain in bags or pockets or have the camera function disabled.
