Swimming lessons

Our swimming academy follows the Amateur Swimming Association's National Plan for Teaching Swimming and has been awarded Aquamark status for excellence in teaching swimming. Children can start from age 3 and upwards.
Lessons last for 30 minutes for lower levels (45 minutes for higher levels). Each child is assessed and put into an appropriate group.

Our 10 week courses cost £47, or £35 for those with a Passport to Leisure. This includes a certificate and badge at the end of each course.

Free swimming for under 16s

The City and County of Swansea currently offer FREE swimming sessions for under 16's throughout the holidays. Children need to be registered for the scheme, but this is done by completing a simple form at the centre.

For session time, take a look at the holiday programmes.

Pool Entry Policy

Please note that children must be accompanied according to the following ratios:
Children aged under 4 yrs need one adult to supervise one child
Children aged 4 - 7 yrs need one adult to supervise two children
Children over 8yrs are able to use the pool unaccompanied .

An adult is considered to be a person aged 16 years and over - the responsible adult should keep the children within eye contact at all times. This policy is aimed at providing a safe and enjoyable environment at all times.

Parent & toddler sessions

Parents and young children will get the chance to take part in special pool sessions at Penlan. Our swim-a-song sessions include water safety, free movement and structured play.

Little Splasher 

We offer Little Splasher sessions for adults with more than one child under eight who are not able to attend normal swimming sessions because of the safety rules (one adult to one child). An extra lifeguard is provided to help parents to keep their children safe.

Swim4Life - why not try some family games to improve your child's swimming techniques and water confidence.
