Holiday Swimming

Crash Courses

Leys Leisure Crash Courses take place during the school holidays and provide a brilliant activity to keep the kids active, learn a lifelong skill, and quickly advance through our swimming scheme.

Our crash courses are aimed for children from the age of 4 who need to build or improve water confidence or develop their technique.

The 30 min lessons are a great opportunity to provide weak swimmers with an introduction to water safety and structured lessons, and provide more experienced swimmers with feedback and guidance that will help them progress to their next level.

The booking form can be found below.

Swim Clinics

Our experienced instructor and City of Cambridge Swimming Club Coach Anna will be offering strokes and skills clinics.

We will be offering different clinics for each stroke – Front crawl, back stroke, breaststroke and butterfly. Sessions will be split depending on your child’s level. We will also be offering starts and turns sessions for advanced and beginners.

Theses clinics will help children master a particular stroke or skill they are struggling with in group lessons. They can also be useful for those wishing to progress their swimming and join a club or those who are already club swimmers but need some individual coaching in particular areas.

Further details:

Stroke clinic levels are based on Leys Leisure swimming lesson levels. If your child swims in a different swim school, please let us know when you book so we can make sure they are booked into the correct session.

Starts and turns sessions will cover diving, backstroke starts and turns for all strokes. These sessions are only suitable for children in level 5 and above.

Beginner sessions are for children who have just moved up a level or those that have struggled to master diving or turns in the group sessions and need some extra coaching to help them progress.

Advanced sessions are or children who are confident diving from the block and already have a basic understanding of turns for each stroke. These sessions are for those looking to improve their technique, become faster and more competitive.

If you are unsure which clinics would suit your child, please contact the Sports Complex and we will be happy to advise.
