Swimming is Fun! Or it should be. There are so many benefits for children to learning to swim. Not only is it good for their health, it’s a life skill that could save their life one day. Their first introduction to water is usually bath time. This is the perfect opportunity for them to relax in the warm water and become accustomed to water splashing around them and having it gently trickle over their head when having their hair washed. This can be an enjoyable experience for most children or it can become a challenge, depending upon the experience they encounter. Some children hate having their hair washed and try and avoid at all cost the water teaming over their head. The same can be said about introducing them to swimming lessons.
If your child is not natural born water baby then booking them into a large class at the local swimming pool with 10 – 12 other children with just a pair of arm bands to support them and the teacher shouting at then from the poolside could fill them with dread. Medi Spa have teamed up with SwimRayz Swimming Lessons to provide the best introduction to swimming lesson that your child can have. The pool is 35 – 37 degrees which is lovely a warm. The class sizes are small with a maximum of 4 in a class. The swim teacher have years of experience and the classes are structured to cater for the age and ability of the children. Classes will be starting on Mondays in March 2017 Other days and times will be available over the next few months Please contact us for more information or to let us know what days/time would be most convenient for you

How it works:
We follow the ASA’s National Programme for the Teaching of Swimming (NTPS) and award badges accordingly for achieving a particular NTPS level or distance.
Children 3 – 5 years’ work towards the Ducklings Award
6 years + work towards Stage 1 – 2 .
Class sizes are small (4 pupils per teacher) to ensure plenty of individual tuition for each swimmer. Teachers will accompany non-swimmers in the water and aim to provide an environment which is fun, warm, friendly and enjoyable
During the first week an initial assessment will take place to ensure children are in the correct group for their level of swimming ability. Therefore, it is predicted that there may be some class movements during this time, when children may be asked to move to another class level that will best suit their needs.
Assessments are on a continual basis. Swimmers will stay in the same class until they have successfully completed all elements of that stage.
Please remember that children progress at different rates and some children will stay in the same class for a period of time before they master the skills required. Progress cannot be rushed. Children will progress at a rate that they feel comfortable with.
When your child passes a level, they may stay in the same class. If not, you will receive a text with the new class time. We will advise you accordingly. We want to accommodate your schedule and make sure each of our classes is as effective as it can be to ensure your child the best possible learning experience.
Badges and certificates can be purchased at the cost of £3 ( are given or purchased at key stages)
