Swimming Crash Courses in South London Over School Holidays

School Holidays Swimming Crash Course in South London

What is a swimming crash course?

Our intensive swimming lessons also known as swimming crash courses, are daily 30-minute or 60-minute lessons offered during weekdays-Monday to Friday- during long school holidays like summer holidays, Easter and half-terms.

We offer swimming crash courses over school summer holidays when all schools break for summer. Swimming crash courses which are 5-Day intensive swim lessons are a great solution for children who have too busy during school term time and cannot do termly lessons.

Since our start, our school holidays swimming crash courses run on weekdays in the morning times and we run them at three different pools:

Wimbledon High School and Wimbledon College in Wimbledon and Aspire centre in Southfields in Wandsworth, Southwest London.

Swimming crash courses are also excellent to keep active and catch up with swimming specially before going away for your summer vacations.

Format of Swimming Crash Courses

Teaching methods are similar to our weekly lessons. We only offer intensive private (1:1) and semi-private lessons (1:2 and 1:3) in our swimming cash courses.

Intensive swimming lessons are far more effective than once a week (weekly) specially when individuals are nervous in the water. They are also great to work on technique.

A 5-Day course could be a great introduction to swimming and confidence building for beginners.

For very nervous children we always recommend 1:1 lessons.

In a 5-Day swimming crash course, your child (or you) will have one lesson each day; from Monday to Friday. Each lesson normally is 30 mins, however, you can also book 60-mins lessons.

Bookings are for 5 days and normally no discount can be provided if you don’t attend all 5 days.

School Summer Holiday Swimming Crash Courses

Normally over the Summer holidays, we offer 4 weeks of swimming crash courses. What it means you can have 5 lessons in one week or 10 lessons in two weeks or 15 in three weeks.

You will get almost half of the usual term of weekly swim lessons only in one week.

Swimming crash courses let you conveniently squeeze almost a term of swim lessons in two weeks and be efficient with your time.

So if you are living in southwest London and looking for swimming crash courses near you, don’t look any further.
