Find Out More Over 50 S wimming 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.

Email Us More Information COMING SOON I.LEARN TO SWIM From time to time we offer the opportunity for children with SEND to work towards The Learn to Swim Awards through a series of adapted lessons . ​ The Awards are divided into 7 progressive stages. They make up the core, national syllabus of learning to swim for primary school aged children. ​ They are designed to reward your child for their development of the essential aquatic skills they need to be confident, competent and safe in the water. ​ Should a child not meet the Learn to Swim Award criteria within the series of classes, we will endeavour to match their progression to another award scheme. ​ To access these classes you must be a member of SDSG and be regularly attending our main fortnightly swim session. More Information I.DEVELOP Adult Swimming From time to time we offer the opportunity for young people and adults with SEND to work towards The Swim England Adult Swimming Framework through a series of adapted lessons . ​ The Adult Swimming Framework is about improving confidence, technique and safety in the water, with no age limit. ​ Not everyone is able to reach their potential in the water during their school years . This is where swimming lessons using our Adult Swimming Framework can help. ​ Around 30% of adults in the UK can’t swim a length. Yet, one quarter of adult non-swimmers would like to learn how. ​ Adults have very different needs to children when learning to swim – as an adult, you have different motivations and learn in different ways. ​ Our Adult Swimming Framework takes this into account, providing goals and targets suitable for those aged 16+. ​ To access these classes you must be a member of SDSG and be regularly attending our main fortnightly swim session.
