Private swimming lessons

Enjoy private swimming lessons with one of our West Bay swimming instructors. Suitable for all ages and abilities, our swimming lessons are bespoke to your individual needs and are designed to help you gain confidence in the pool and improve on skills and stroke technique.

Water-tots Swimming Lessons

It’s never too early to start teaching little ones to have water-confidence. West Bay’s new lessons for parent and baby or child are the perfect way to introduce little ones to the water in safe and supportive surroundings and develop essential skills needed for swimming independently.

Swimming with your baby or child is a wonderful, unique experience for you to enjoy together. As your child discovers the joy of being in the water, learning to interact with you, other children and the water itself, you’ll see their confidence grow and know that they are learning vital new life skills, improving co-ordination, balance and muscle control whilst having fun and socialising through songs, games and play.

Class details

Classes are for children aged from 4 months to 4 years (pre-school) and will be taken by ASA Level 2 qualified swimming teacher Lizzie Kreuz, with a new qualification in Adult and Child pre fundamentals (aquatics) Level 2.

Each 30 minute lesson will take place in small groups each Tuesdays and Thursday during term time (starting Tuesday 13th September) in the temperate, low-chlorine waters of the West Bay indoor pool – so you won’t overheat and your baby’s eyes won’t sting.
