Learn to Swim

The Learn To Swim section of the Club is organised so a swimmer can join as a complete beginner from the age of 5 and can progress through to our Performance Squad.

Backwell has adopted the ASA Learn To Swim Pathway which sets clear objectives for swimmers to move the next stage of their development.  Our teaching groups all have weekly term time lessons.  The maximum group size is 12 and all teachers are qualified to at least ASA Level 1.

In addition, some of the more experienced club swimmers assist the teachers with the classes.  There is a simple guide to the LTS pathway here.  The current teaching days can be found below for stages 1-6.  Once swimmers graduate from Stage 6 they will progress into our Minnows or Marlins squads which prepares them for competitive swimming and entry into our Development squad.  Fees are charged termly for swimmers in Stage 1-6 and from Minnows squads become payable by monthly standing order.
