At present, we have over 270 swimmers in our teaching and early competitive classes.
We begin to teach children to swim from the age of five years.
In SWSC, we have adopted the Swim Ireland Learn to Swim Programme. This means that we teach all children from level one to level eight.
Our teaching classes are divided into groups beginning at level one and finishing at level 5. Level 6 to level 8 are taught in our advanced lanes group. We currently have two terms: Term 1 is September to February; Term 2 is February to July. There is an official assessment during a term. However, we operate a policy of continuous assessment so swimmers can be moved at any time.
We also have a fun, mini-gala for those more advanced swimmers in our teaching sessions.
All our teachers are qualified.
Some swimmers may progress beyond the teaching programme to competitive swimming within SWSC. For others, we have introduced a teenage swim class. This means SWSC caters for all categories and all ages from 5yrs to adult, competitive and non-competitive.
