Kids Swimming Lessons

Swimming lessons for children at Westpark Fitness are ideal for school going kids from ages 4 and upwards.

There are four courses all of which are based on ability of the child. There is an opportunity to progress from beginners right through to swimmers just as many children have done already. This gives the child both competency building skills and confidence and ability in the water too. The pupil/ teacher ratio for all classes are kept to a low level.
