Children's swimming lessons

A valuable Skill for Life - Derbyshire Dales District Council's pools are a great place for your children to learn to swim - our lessons follow the Amateur Swimming Association National Teaching Plan which takes children on a journey from their first splash right through to developing their swimming skills to become confident, competent and safe in the water.

Great fun

Our friendly and well qualified instructors cater for children of all ages and abilities so, as well as learning and improving skills, our sessions are also fun and a great way to make new friends. Your child's hard work will be regularly rewarded with certificates and badges from the ASA Awards Scheme.

There may be a waiting list for children's swimming lessons, so we advise you to put your child's name down as early as possible so that we will let you know when a suitable place becomes available.
