Swimming Lessons

Children Swimming Lessons

Our Children’s Swimming Lessons programme is currently full. As soon as spaces become available, we will post information here.

Swimming Lessons cater to children between the ages of 4 and 12 years. Our swimming lessons cater for children of all abilities and our experienced staff will be on hand to assist and encourage all children to progress from Level 1 to Level 5. We offer a lane-swimming programme to children who have completed Level 5, in order to continue to develop their stamina and skills in the water.

All children are required to complete a pre-assessment before joining lessons. Assessment dates will be advertised below as soon as dates are set. These assessments are carried out before each term begins.

Assessments are limited and unfortunately booking a swim assessment will not guarantee a space in lessons. Spaces in our lessons is dependent on children moving up a level.

As soon as assessment dates are advertised bookings will open via our main reception on 0214904796. We do not currently have an online booking platform.


For more information, please contact our Receptionist on 0214904751 or by email childrensactivity@ucc.ie
