Being able to swim increases confidence, and can become an enjoyable and healthy total fitness hobby. Whether it is to improve your stroke or start from scratch, Brecon Leisure Centre Swim School is perfect for all.

Here at Brecon Leisure Centre we follow ASA Learn to Swim Pathway. This means your child will be following a nationally recognised syllabus and awards system produced by swimming’s governing body.

It is our policy to ensure that all our lessons are enjoyable, interesting and above all we aim for the highest standards of water confidence, water skills and swimming techniques.

Our Swimming Teachers follow continuous assessment which means swimmers progress at their own pace and move class once the assessment criteria has been achieved.

To enquire about swimming lessons please complete this simple form and a member of the team will be in touch shortly.

Swim School Members information

Our swim school programme runs for 50 weeks of the year, during all school holidays with a 2 week break for Christmas.

swim hats

Swim hats are worn by all children in the scheme and are colour coded to identify the swim level. Hats are provided on joining the scheme and when progressing through levels. Replacement hats are available to purchase from reception.

free swimming

Don’t forget your child’s freedomleisure membership card entitles them to FREE swimming during all public swim sessions. This allows them to practise what they learn each week during lessons. Some levels take time to progress to the next level - swimming between lessons can help to speed up the process.

home portal - course progress

With the introduction of the Course Pro Swim School administration software all assessment information is held in the members account. Parents / Guardians can access their child’s progress report via an online Home Portal.

You will require the members ID number (available from reception) to register for access to the Swim School Home Portal. Once your account is activated children’s progress can be viewed online.
