Our new warm pool for a private and semi-private classes for children and adults. Swimming lessons for people with a water fear as well.
In some books and/or web sites you can find that they suggest 20 sessions should be enough for an adult to learn how to swim. But we do NOT give a number as we don’t know how confident you are at the moment (as it might take some people a few hours only to gain water confidence and get in the pool ). It depends on a lot of factors, if you will practice in between lessons by yourself, how quickly you learn what the instructor is asking you to do, your general fitness etc. The best way is to have a few classes and then we will be able to give you a better idea of how many lessons you may need.
What is a 1-2-1 lesson?
A 1-2-1 lesson is one swimmer/student to one instructor. Everyone is different. Whether it is your coordination , personality, buoyancy or health condition the lessons are tailored to your specific needs.
What is 2-2-1 lessons?
A 2-2-1 lesson is two swimmers to one instructor. We still tailor the lessons to suit the swimmers but so it suits both of them. We do request that swimmers are of the similar ability and if children are of a similar age to get the most out of your lesson.
Our terms and conditions can be found on the bottom of our website https://3sswim.co.uk/terms-and-conditions-3s-swim-school/
Please make sure that when booking, you give all relevant information e.g. age of student if a child, swimming level of student if known and your postcode or the name of our nearest to you venue. The easiest way to book your lessons is by emailing us: [email protected] or text 07525328582
A crash course is where you book the same time slot with the same instructor everyday for a week. These can be booked as private or semi private lessons. It’s great for boosting progress or giving young swimmers to the best start.
We are very strict with our certification, to get the certificate, a child should get all the required boxes ticked for that stage. Even if one of the boxes is not ticked, we can’t provide you with the next stage certificate. We are not giving certificates only for the time swam with us, but for the skills learnt. For a full description of the certificates and requirements, you can go here https://3sswim.co.uk/certificates/
Certificates are given out at the end of each term. If your child has moved up a stage after the initial assessments at the beginning of term, they will move up immediately. If they have passed their stage at the end of term, they will be moved into the new stage at the beginning of the following term.
If you have a young or nervous swimmer please make your instructor aware and #team3s will be happy to advice you on further steps. We advise trying to spend more time with them in a pool. Spend only to have FUN and enjoy the time being in the water and we will do the rest; teaching them to swim.
No, from 3 years old we can run private 1-2-1 sessions. Our instructors will be in the water with your child/ren.
It all depends on the venue and shape pool. For the first few lessons we ask parents to be near the shallow end with their children. After the children get used to the new place and new instructor, we ask parents to sit on pool side, but as far from the lesson as possible. It helps children focus on the lesson and their instructor rather than looking at the parents or showing them something. During the Toddlers/Babies classes one of the parents/guardians should be in the water with the child at all times. If you have 2 kids, then we will need a parent/guardian for each child in the water. Parents of children under 8 are required to stay on poolside for the duration of the lesson. Parents of children aged 8 to 10 can leave the poolside during the lessons as long as they ensure they bring the child to the teacher on poolside at the beginning of the lesson and collect them from the teacher on poolside at the end of the lesson. Children aged 11 and over can come to the pool on their own as long as the parent decides it is safe to do so.
1-2-1 Private session one-to-one with the instructor.
2-2-1 (semi-Private session), when two swimmers/students with one instructor.
Groups for Adult beginners is MAX x4 swimmers.
Groups for children with MAX of 4 in a group.
FitSwim (Fitness Swimming) Class- Max 10 for one coach split in 2 separate lanes. It is a session for adults/masters of intermediate and advanced swimmers who can swim non-stop over a hundred meters and come to improve their swimming techniques, speed, distance or race preparation.
Unfortunately, we don’t currently offer sessions for women only or men only. We do have male and female swimming instructors, so you have a choice of teachers based on your personal preferences.
Please bring suitable swimwear (one piece swimsuit for women), towel, goggles (we usually have some for sale on a pool side, but happy to recommend suitable ones to purchase too), swimming hat (we have 3S Swim branded ones for sale on pool side), flip flops (optional but recommended for safety on slippery floors as you cannot wear outdoor shoes on poolside), and shampoo/shower gel. Please ask if you need any additional information. We provide boards and any floatation devices that are needed to help you learn.
