All our classes are grouped not just on age but also ability
Baby Swim Classes (2 weeks to 3/4 years)
You will find a SwimMania baby course very different to other swimming lessons. We only use warm water pools (32c+) and your baby will love the sensation of floating in such a warm, calm and friendly atmosphere. Your little one can join our swim classes from just a couple of weeks old, you will be amazed at what all our babies can achieve in the water. At SwimMania our courses are carefully structured, with progressive lesson plans for each week. Each lesson we try and teach you and your little swimmer something new, fun and exciting so each session is different. Our lessons are so much fun and babies and parents always leave the pool happy learning such an amazing skill! The babies are usually ready for a good long nap after their swim class and we have been told the little ones tend to sleep really well at night on a swimming lesson day! Our baby swim classes are perfect for you and your little star and our lessons will really help with all the babies senses, it's also an excellent bonding activity for you both! Baby swimming is completely natural; having spent months surrounded by fluid in the womb, babies have a real affinity with water! We look foward to teaching you and your little one very soon for lots of fun!

Big Kids Classes
Our baby swimmers progress into these classes so the parents can take a step back and watch the swmmers progress from poolside. The more advanced classes are for our swimmers who have completed our beginner classes where we will work on all the four main strokes - Front Crawl, Backstroke, Breastroke and Butterfly. We also include in our big kids classes life saving and water polo so all the swimmers are learning these fun skills while learning to swim. The classes are lots of fun and the swimmers always leave the pool super happy.
We run these classes every day from morning till night
Angel Fish 1 & 2 (Pre school) - 3 to 4.5 year olds that are confident in the pool alone and are happy swimming on their front and back without adult support. Swimmers that have completed our adult and child classes will move into this pre school class. We spilt these classes into Angel 1 and 2 so the more confident swimmers would be in a higher level pre school class.

Additional Needs Classes
Swimming is a great form of exercise: moving through water is low impact and targets muscles all over your body without harsh gravitational demands. As mentioned above the low impact nature of swimming strengthens muscles, joints, and tendons just to name a few benefits! Cooler water can make muscles tighter so we only use warm water pools at SwimMania and we have found this has really helped our swimmers especially those with conditions such as cerebral palsy. We make our Additional Needs Classes super fun and structure each class to the swimmers individual needs. We teach swimmers with a wide range of additional needs so just give us a call and we can point you into the right direction to start your swimming journey.
We run these classes on a Wednesday
One 2 One Classes
One 2 Ones are great especially if a swimmer is really nervous or is struggling with a certain task. We run One 2 Ones throughout the week and also on a weekend. They are £20 a lesson and are booked in blocks of 4 then you can just rebook if you would like some more classes.
We run one 2 ones - Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday
