Swimming Pool's Size and Depth:

Aspire Centre at Southfields has a 25 metre indoor heated swimming pool with the water temperature set at 29°C throughout the year. This pool is a three-lane pool allowing plenty of space for stamina training and lane swimming for children who are stages 4 of NTPS and above   The shallow end of this pool is 1 meter deep and the maximum depth in the deep end is 3 meters.   The safety required for teaching and practicing diving in England is the minimum depth of 1.8 meters. So, we are also able to teach and practice basic diving and personal survival skills in this pool as part of our learn-to-swim programme (stages 4 and above of Swim England NTSP) The venue is well supplied with all the aids - such as kickboards, pull buoys, floats, and noodles, required for teaching swimming so there is no requirement to bring along additional swimming equipment to lessons. It is a requirement that all swimmers, male and female, wear swimming hats for hygiene reasons. Post COVID-19: All swimmers, male and female, must turn up beach ready for our classes If you'd like to bring along your swimming equipment to our lessons, that is fine.  

Changing Facilities and Showers for Swimmers

There are two spacious and separate changing rooms at this venue. One is allocated for boys/men and one is for girls/ladies’ usage. Both changing rooms have their own warm showers and toilets. Lockers: There are lockers at this facility but, we recommend not to use them post corona due to the increase in touchpoints. However, you can bring your own wipes and clean the lockers before and after using them.   Hangers/Hooks: Each changing room has plenty of hangers/hooks to hang clothes and bags. There are no baby boards for changing babies either, so, for a baby lesson, people are advised to bring their own changing mats with them. There is a separate toilet for people with disabilities at this facility.  

Observatory and Waiting area for Parents

This swimming pool has an observatory area with glass windows with chairs available for parents/carers and siblings to sit down and observe swimming lessons.
