Children's Swimming

actif fs1Aqua Sir Gar implements a complete swimming programme that takes children of all abilities and experience levels and develops them to be confident and able in the water.

We aim to have every child in Carmarthenshire able to swim by the age of eleven, by this we mean that every child will reach stage 6 of our teaching plan.  This is a plan for life and not just for the moment.  Help us reach this target by encouraging your child to the pool regularly.

All our swimming lessons are fully inclusive.
Lessons can be adapted as necessary to help all children achieve their potential. If your child has specific needs, please discuss them with your local swim school.

We have recently changed the way we deliver school swimming across the county to ensure that more children have access to school swimming and ensure that the quality of lessons that they receive is greatly improved.

School swimming follows the same teaching plan as our learn to swim (LTS) programme. The LTS programme is a year round programme that develops your child's ability in the water and provides regular exercise. Click here for more information on the LTS programme.
