swimming for all at Freedom Leisure

Swimming for all at Freedom Leisure

Swimming is a great activity for the whole family to participate in together. All ages and abilities can enjoy splashing around and practicing the life skill of swimming.

Did you know? - A gentle swim can burn over 200 Kcal in half an hour and regular weekly swimming can lead to improved sleep patterns & lower stress levels

Our pool programmes aim to provide the opportunities for everyone to participate whether you want to swim lengths, swim with under 5’s or with the family. Many of our pools have additional attractions such as leisure pools, flumes, wave machines or inflatables to provide fun for children of all ages.

For further information on facilities and pool timetables please visit your local Freedom Leisure centre webpage and remember to check the pool admission policy to ensure children have the correct supervision at the pool you are visiting.

Swimming is a fundamental life skill and everyone should have the opportunity to learn and enable them to enjoy a multitude of aquatic activities and be safe.

We work in partnership with Swim England and Swim Wales to deliver nationally recognised Learn to Swim Pathways for children from 4 months  and the lessons can be delivered as weekly group lessons, private lessons or we do run week long intensive courses during the school holidays.

I thought I was too old to learn how to swim at 43 but after my family bought me lessons for my birthday, it has been a great journey! My progress in the water has been better than I could have imagined and it's down to the swimming instructor at King Alfred Leisure Centre!
