WV Active Swim School

Childrens Classes, Clubs & Classes

Is it time for your child to start swimming lessons but you’re not sure where to start? Sending  children to their first swimming lesson can sometimes be a nerve-racking experience for both parents and children.  At WV Active Swim School, we’re here to put you at ease and look after your child every step of the way.

Swimming lessons take place at two of our leisure centres: WV Active Central in Wolverhampton and WV Active Bilston – Bert Williams in Bilston. At WV Active Swim School we think it’s important that all children have the chance to learn the vital life skill of swimming which is why we offer lessons for all ages and abilities.

Why your child should learn to swim

Aside from gaining a new skill, learning to swim will build your child’s confidence in and out of the pool. Plus, it will keep your child healthy by improving their strength, stamina and flexibility. Swimming is also lots of fun; children often make friends in their swimming classes and don’t realise they are learning whilst having an enjoyable experience. Ultimately, swimming is a lifesaving skill which is valuable for everyone to have.

Why WV Active Swim School?

We pride ourselves in offering quality swimming lessons for all children who learn to swim with us. We do this by working in partnership with the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA). Our lessons follow the ASA learn to swim pathway and all our swimming instructors are ASA qualified. All pools are supervised by fully qualified Royal Life Saving Society (RLSS) lifeguards allowing your children to enjoy a safe and healthy environment at all times. At WV Active Swim School we believe we can bring out the best in your child whilst teaching them by ensuring they have a fun and enjoyable experience.
