Our Learn To Swim programme enables young swimmers to learn the basic techniques needed to swim the four strokes correctly. This important first stage of swimming is all about having a good time whilst learning to swim properly and confidently. The Club has adopted the National Teaching Plan for Swimming (NPTS) and swimmers will be progressed through the widths sessions following the NPTS Skill Level Awards, as well as having the opportunity to gain distance badges with a view to ultimately feeding through to our competitive squads should your child have the ability and desire to further develop their swimming potential.
We use Kingsley Leisure Centre to assist in this learning process where there is a 20m - 4 lane pool.
Our teachers are ASA qualified and we also encourage and use our older swimmers to help the younger children and pass on their skills. Children can start with us at 4½ years and once they have learned to swim, have perfected their techniques and developed some stamina there is the possibility to progress to the next level with Redditch Swimming Club - introducing them to competitive swimming and leading them to greater things!!!!
The learn to swim programme at Kingsley Sports Centre, Redditch is run by some of our most senior and qualified coaches, David Finney, Alan Field, Tom Rider, Linda Anderson and Diego Worrall. They are ably supported by our team of coaching staff (Amelia Tompkin, James Coward, Leah Dains, Megan Moss) and poolside helpers (Rebecca Street, Dan Stanley). As a club we also encourage some of our teenage swimmers from the competitive squads to help teach and pass on their skills to the new emerging swimmers.
