Learn2Swim on Tuesdays 

The BASC Learn2Swim Programme is based on the Swim Ireland Child Learn2Swim syllabus and award scheme, and is designed for children from the age of 5 years. Lessons take place every Tuesday term time between 6.30pm - 8.30pm depending on ability.

With the emphasis on building confidence and enjoyment, children learn the fundamental skills for water safety and for developing a wide range of aquatic skills alongside the four main swimming strokes.

Each child is placed in an appropriate level according to experience and ability, and will progress at his or her own rate through the Levels 1 – 8.  

Children who have completed Level 6 may apply for a trial to join the Development Squads in the club, which start them on the competitive pathway (there may be restrictions due to the number of places available).  Not all children wish to proceed to competitive swimming; the aim of the programme is make swimming fun, develop safety and competency in the water, and provide the foundation for a lifetime involvement in aquatics. 

To view the objectives of the BASC Learn2Swim levels please contact our Learn2Swim Head Teacher - Derek Beattie.
