Swim Lessons Academy

The Swim Lessons Academy at the National Aquatic Centre focuses on introducing swimmers to the range of swimming skills using a fun, engaging approach while all the time developing the skills to enable the swimmer to progress through each level. Linking in with Lifesaving skills allows all ages to recognise safety in and around bodies of water.

Working with our National Governing Body Swim Ireland the programme that is run out of the National Aquatic Centre ensures a solid platform to learn from. It is built with a purpose. It is built with passion.

As part of the programme each child will have access to progress reports. This will be done on a continual basis. Working with and applying Swim Ireland’s syllabus will allow us to more effectively monitor each swimmer’s progression to ensure they are given the best opportunity within their class to progress.
