Learn To Swim Programme (LTSP)

As the new centre opens in August (was due to be end of June), Learn to Swim will pass into Council hands. We were stopped from petitioning and fighting for our members. It was always WW view that the club should not recuit from January onwards, a) as membership fees would have to be paid in full to Swim England even for only 6 months, b) if passing into council hands, we believed that choice is the key, therefore, other options should be given, c) if pasing into Council, the advice is, join their LTS.

At the bottom of this page is a list of clubs who do offer alternative learn to swim, along with contact details. Contact us on: waspsmembership@hotmail.com We’ll advise on a suitable Learn to Swim programme.

£25.00 per month  for 1 Session per week.

£30.00 per month for 2 Sessions per week.

£35.00 per month for 3 Sessions per week.

We have a Learn To Swim Pathway (LTSP) within the structure of our club. Children are taught the Swim England’s Learn To Swim Pathway from stage 1 through to 7 (8-10 are continued in our competitive programme).

Beginners are able to start at the age of four in our widths and progress through the stages into lengths before going into Junior Skill Development for the beginning of their competitive career.

At present we have twelve trained volunteer staff who deliver these sessions, from both the poolside and from within the water.
