Learn to swim

The Dover Life Guard Learn to Swim Scheme operates on Thursday evenings from 6.35 pm and on Saturday mornings from 7 am at the Dover Leisure Centre.
The club offers lessons for all ages and abilities and participates in the ASA Awards Scheme using the National Plan for Teaching Swimming.

If you would like to know more about these sessions, you can either e-mail the club on our Contact page or come along on Thursday or Saturday and talk to one of the teachers.

Although assessing swimmers is done every session, we are aiming to do the formal assessments on set dates so that parents will be aware when they will be taking place.

For 2016/17 these will be:                  21st and 23rd July                        20th and 22nd October

19th and 21st January 2017              20th and 22nd April 2017              20th and 22nd July 2017                   

19th and 21st October 2017
