Swimming Lessons, near Preston and Lytham

Swimming lessons are available in our Leisure Pool within The Health Club at Ribby Hall Village for children aged 3+.

Pre-School Swimming Lessons

Our 30 minute lessons run from Monday - Friday during school term time with a maximum of three children in the water at any one time. Your child's instructor will remain in the water with your child and teach them the important first skills of swimming. Following the national plan, the instructor will help your child achieve Swim England's Duckling awards. This will see them gain water confidence in a fun and safe environment whilst giving them the skills to confidently progress further into the after school swim classes. 

Stages 1 - 7 Swimming Lessons 

The start of the swimming journey every child should achieve. Our experienced instructors will teach your child to swim unaided, improve technique and gain the necessary skills to survive in water. This journey is governed by Swim England who provide a framework of awards along the way. 

Price: £60 for 10 lessons

Rookie Lifeguard

Once your child has achieved all Swim England stages 1-7 they have the option to progress onto the Rookie Lifeguard programme. The RLSS UK's Rookie Lifeguard programme offers fun and varied activities that will give your child the skills they need to be confident in the pool or the sea. During the sessions each child will learn how to swim and enjoy water safely, whether in shallow or deeper water.

Reopening FAQs

Changing rooms are still accessible, but we ask that where possible, swimmers come ‘beach ready’ with their swim kit underneath their clothing. Where possible, we encourage swimmers to not use the changing rooms or showers after their lessons if not required. Lockers are available and require £1 coin or a token. 

If you would like to go for a swim during the lesson, there will be an additional charge of £5 per adult and £3 per child. Swim sessions are for 90 minutes, and are subject to availability. The session MUST be booked and paid for with reception. This can be done on the day of your lesson, by calling 01772 682000. When you arrive at reception, you will check in for your swim session, and receive the appropriate coloured wristband to wear for that time slot. 

Our Activate store is open and located next to the reception desk. Here we sell floatation aids, goggles, swimming caps, and swim nappies amongst other things. 

Please contact The Health Club reception with any other questions you have, by calling 01772 682000.
