Swimming Lessons

State-of-the-art facilities and experienced teachers form the core of our ‘Aquarius Schools’ Swim School. With pools in the north and south of Coventry, schools are able to access the venue that is nearest to them in order to minimise travel time.

The Xcel Leisure Centre in the south of the city provides a 25-metre pool with adjustable floor height, the pool at Centre AT7 boasts a 25-metre pool with a splash pool to.

Lessons are thirty minutes in duration, with one-hour multi-aquatic classes available for children who have progressed through all of the stages. We run a continuous assessment for all children, enabling progression at the point when all the criteria has been achieved.

The swim programme focuses on all four main strokes, water confidence and water skills. Children will develop key stroke techniques whilst working towards badges from the ASA ‘learn to swim’ pathway.

You can learn more about our programme of swimming lessons for children below.

Face masks/ coverings are mandatory for swimming lesson parents. Only 1 parent should be accompanying their child. Please ensure you are observing social distancing by following the dot system on the floor when watching your child swim. When all spaces have gone to watch your child swim please wait outside the main doors until the lesson has ended. 
For customers who are medically exempt from wearing face masks, you can watch your child swim without a covering but you are required to wear your exemption lanyard.
