No matter what the experience your child has in the water, Northern Arena learn to swim school has levels from beginner to competitive. With swim lessons set by ability rather than by age, your child will progress through the levels as soon as they have attained the required criteria. Lessons range from 30-45-60 minutes in length.

Once children are at school, their swimming skills begin to develop very quickly indeed. Swimming lessons for kids at this age continue to focus on water safety, building water confidence, and developing a sound technical swimming base of the four different strokes (Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Butterfly) - whilst having fun. 

A quick swim assessment is required to start them off in the swim program in the correct swimming class. The purpose-built learn to swim pools and swimming program structure aids development and progression through the swim levels.

These swimming classes are available 7 days a week and run all year round.


Swim Assessments

For Ages 3+ 

Northern Arena’s learn to swim classes are set by ability rather than age. For children aged 3+ years we can assess your child’s ability to ensure they begin swimming at the correct level within the swim school programme. 

Each learn to swim assessment will only take 5-10 minutes where the instructor will ask your child to perform a few simple tasks in the water.

For your child’s FREE no obligation learn to swim assessment, you can book here.

All times are subject to availability.

All children under 3 years of age a swim assessment is not required. Please see here for more.
