From gaining water confidence to stroke development, water polo and ‘rookie’ lifeguard, the Brio Learn 2 Swim programme has something for everyone. No matter what your age or ability, our fully qualified ASA teachers will conduct a free initial assessment before all lessons to ensure you're learning at the right level and getting the most from your time in the pool.
Your induction should last around 30 minutes. If your child is a non swimmer they will not be required to complete a water test, however if they can already swim a little bit, then we will ask them to get into the water so that we can properly assess which level they should be starting from.
During the induction we will also explain how the lessons operate - where to get changed, where to wait on poolside, what happens if someone needs the toilet! This may sound simple, but we understand that starting swimming lessons can be scary and we want all children to feel welcome and confident from the start.
Once the induction is over, our reception team will process your application and each child will receive a FREE swimming card. This card will give children the opportunity to swim for free outside of lesson time to encourage plenty of extra practice. The card will be valid as long as your child is enrolled in the Learn 2 Swim lesson programme. Please remember to bring to your card when your child wants to go swimming to prevent admission being charged.
Following the ASA Duckling Award Scheme, little swimmers start off in the water with the support of a parent or guardian and progress to building their water confidence on their own.
The great thing about our tots lessons is that parents and guardians do not need to be able to swim to take part. They provide the perfect opportunity for you to learn together, and will give you some great ideas to practice in one of our other swimming sessions.
Following a structured lesson programme through the British Gas ASA Learn to Swim Pathway, children will be taken on a journey from their first splash to developing water confidence and competence, all whilst having fun and making friends!
Ideal for children aged 4 years and above who have completed one full term in school. The Brio Learn 2 Swim programme follows the definitive pathway from movement skills in stages 1 - 7 to the later stages which support specific sports coaching including waterpolo and diving!

The great thing about swimming is that no matter what your age, size or ability, anyone can take part. Learning to swim and building your confidence in the water is just the beginning. It's a great sport for keeping your heart and lungs healthy, toning up and reducing stress. It's also an important skill that could save a life!
Knowing how to swim opens up a whole range of other sports as well. Next time you go on holiday you enjoy a spot of snorkelling with the fishes or even try a scuba diving course.
If your child’s water confidence could do with a boost, Brio Swim runs a series of crash course swimming lessons during the school holidays. Suitable for kids aged 4 ½ years and over, from complete beginners to improvers, these courses follow a structured lesson plan and are bookable a week at a time.
Brio Swim also offers a series of one-to-one courses to aid your child's confidence in the water. Unfortunately these lessons are not currently available at Moss Farm Leisure Complex or Winsford Lifestyle Centre.
Look out in the Kids Zone for details on the next holiday crash courses and lessons happening near you!
