Swimming Crash courses

Our swimming crash courses are a perfect way to introduce swimming with a week of daily lessons to increase intensity and learning capacity or to top up on stamina, skills and water confidence.

About our swimming lessons

All Medway’s swimming pools offer crash course swimming lessons as part of the Medway Sport Swim Academy Programme. The lessons are for different ages and abilities, including:

  • pre-school 3 to 4 years: ducklings
  • school age beginners: stages 1 and 2
  • school age improver: stage 3.

We also offer aquatic development crash courses across sites during the holidays.

Our swimming lessons are given by fully qualified instructors who will guide pupils through the Swim England Learn to Swim programme.
