Jump into swimming lessons with our Learn to Swim programme. Children can learn to swim at the Jack Laugher Leisure and Wellness centre in Ripon, Nidderdale pool, Starbeck Baths and Knaresborough pool. Lessons are taught by our friendly and fully-qualified instructors and we follow the Swim England learn-to-swim framework. They run seven days a week, all year round (including school holidays, but not over Christmas and New Year).
We help your child improve their skills in the water and use different colour bands (red to gold) to represent increasing ability levels. These combine stroke technique, water safety and stamina.
We also run one of the most successful disability swimming programmes in the UK. Swimming lessons for children with special educational needs, disabilities or who find mainstream provision too challenging run at the Hydro every Sunday. They can progress through our star scheme into our hot shot swim squad, and in partnership with Harrogate District Swimming Club are able to take part in a range of competitive opportunities.
Rugbytots is the world’s favourite rugby play programme. Our dynamic weekly sessions enable boys and girls aged 2-7 to develop their social and physical skills in a fun and positive environment.
