Ysgol Nofio Freedom

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, Knighton Sports Centre Swim School is perfect for all.

Here at Knighton Sports Centre we deliver the Swim Wales Aquatic Framework. 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.
