LEARN TO SWIM Our Learn to Swim programme at Queen’s Leisure Centre provides the opportunity for everyone regardless of age or ability to learn to swim at their own pace and achieve their own goals. Our qualified swim teachers will progress your child through the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) framework.

UNDER 5s Ducklings – 3 months to 5 years The Ducklings Awards are designed to help children to explore and enjoy the fun of learning to swim. With the help of their parents/carers, your child will develop confidence both in and out of the water, whilst working towards the Duckling Awards.

5 TO 16 YEARS Our lessons cover a range of topics, including water confidence, stamina, stroke technique and much more. All lessons and delivered based on the ability of each individual, so regardless of your child’s experience we will make sure they feel comfortable and help them to build their own confidence at their own pace.

SWIMMING FOR DISABLED CHILDREN We offer Learn to Swim lessons for disabled children of all abilities. Whether your child would prefer to learn as part of a group or on a one-to-one basis, we will provide the necessary stepping stones to help them build their confidence and have fun in the water.

Levels 1 - 7 For non-swimmers, from their first splash to becoming confident and having fun in water. Levels 8 - 10 Discipline-specific and are taught to young people who want to take up competitive swimming, water polo, synchronised, or diving.

To book your lesson call 01332 641444 or visit derby.gov.uk/learntoswim
