Kids outdoor swimming sessions
Do your kids love to swim and being in the water? Have they done swimming lessons and looking for new ways to explore the water? Do you love swimming outdoors and want to introduce your kids to the joy? Yes? Then why not come along to these special kids sessions. There are two options depending on children’s age.
Age 7+ Taster Session
With this swim, you will need to enter the water with your child. They will need to be able to swim and be confident in the water – this isn’t a swimming lesson, this is an intro to outdoor water. The session will include ways to stay safe in outdoor water, some swimming and some fun!
Age 11+ Open Water Coaching
This swim is for more advanced swimmers. Your child will be able to comfortably swim unaided in a pool, be confident treading water. They should be able to swim at least 50 meters without stopping. This session will teach children about being safe in open water as well as providing skills for swimming in the outdoors. You have the option of joining the child in the water, or spectating from the side. You can’t leave the child unattended on-site, you will need to be present for the session.
The Quays at Mytchett is a beautiful lake, children will be able to stand on entry, but we will do some work in the water where they can’t stand. There will be safety woggles provided. The groups will be small to keep everyone safe. Dip Advisor is DBS checked, an Open Water Lifeguard, Open Water Coach and Level 2 Swim Teacher.
