Finn Valley Leisure Centre Swim Academy follows Swim Ireland’s Learn to Swim Programme. Swim Ireland is the National Governing Body for Aquatics in Ireland and the Child Learn to Swim programme is based around the principles of Long Term Athlete Development.
This provides a fundamental base to all the aquatic disciplines and is designed around 8 progressive levels to provide comprehensive learning for the swimmer. All children attending Finn Valley Leisure Centre Swim Academy will receive a Swim Ireland Certificate for their level of achievement at the end of the term.
Terms last 10 weeks and incorporate one 30 minute lesson per week. Practice outside each lesson is recommended. All our Swim Instructors are qualified under Swim Ireland. Finn Valley Leisure Centre is also a host centre for Swim Ireland and offer training courses and CPD’s in Teaching Aquatics throughout the year.
Recommended starting age is 5 years old. For the under 5’s we offer an Aqua Playgroup and Toddler Water Confidence lessons.
Teen and Adult Swimming Lessons are also available along with Masters coaching sessions.
Our Learn to Swim programme is also available for School groups.
