Aerobic Class in Pool

Hydro-Rehab & Fitness

With Claire Edwards

Join our fitness & exercise based activities run by a qualified Fitness & Aquafit Instructor, combining general swimming and exercise to improve movement and mobility.

Our aquatic activities compliment other exercise and fitness programmes. For those in chronic pain, the water's buoyancy supports the body's weight, reducing stress on the joints and minimising pain. Exercising in the water also increases circulation and improves range of motion. The water's resistance also helps build muscle strength and flexibility. 

All Age Aqua-Sensory

Which can include fluid movements, relaxation, music, singing, signing and discovery play.  There are activities for children, adults and the whole family. 

We have installed state of the art visual and audio equipment and have a team of dedicated volunteers and qualified Swim Teachers, many of whom have undertaken further professional development in water therapy and sensory play. 

SDSG is affiliated to the Halliwick Association of Swimming Therapy.

Water Safety Awards

With around 48 percent of children in England, leaving primary school (Key Stage 2) unable to swim, we want to ensure that children with a disability (and their siblings) have the opportunity to keep themselves safe in and around water.

Swimming isn't just about being able to have fun in the water with family and friends (although it is and you should!). Its about knowing what to do if someone gets into trouble. Or if a strong current takes your friend away from the edge. Or if you fall in when running by a river or a canal. 

Our swim teachers are there to support you in your learning and assesses you against the award scheme.  

SDSG is committed to The Swim England School Swimming and Water Safety Charter.

Supported by Springhead School, Woodlands School and  number of SEN Departments in local mainstream schools.

Over 50 Swimming

Swimming in any form is great exercise. Not only is it a whole-body workout, but thanks to the extra resistance of water, you’re building strength and boosting your cardio fitness at the same time. The buoyancy offered by the water means you’re less likely to hurt yourself and makes it ideal if you’re recovering from injury or returning to exercise after a long lay-off.

These sessions are also a great opportunity to meet up with friends, socialise and get active together. Not only does this make them great for your physical wellbeing, but your mental health as well.

Accessible Facilities

Ample disabled parking, two accessible changing rooms with shower changing beds, open plan village changing cubicles, Pool Pod Platform. Plus lots lots more.
