No Swimming Lessons

Monday 22 – Sunday 28 August 2016

It is crucial for our Learn 2 Swim Teachers to continually improve and learn the most up-to-date expertise in swimming lessons.

This develops their skills and enables them to deliver a high level of teaching and experience to you and your child. It helps bring together ideas on how to keep the lessons, current, fresh and fun!

In order to make this happen all our Learn 2 Swim Teachers will attend a week long training course from Monday 22nd – Sunday 28th August.

No swimming lessons will run at any Xcite venue during this week.

Swim Teachers are now using iPods on poolside to update your child’s progress and mark their attendance.
