Learn2Swim

Eastleigh Swim Club runs a well respected and thriving Learn to Swim programme. It has developed over recent years in line with the Swim England National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS). This is an all-inclusive programme taking the non-swimmer from his or her first splash to developing confidence and competence in the water.

* Descriptions of each of the Learn2Swim Stages can be found on the Swim England website.
