Our programme is a fun, vibrant and challenging environment catering for children and adults of all ages and abilities. We run weekly term-time classes six days a week (not Saturdays) - so there is something for everyone. Click on 'Calendar' in the sub-menu for our term-time dates. We are based at Guildford Spectrum.
We provide weekly term-time lessons for children aged six and upwards, who can swim 25m and are comfortable in deep water without goggles.
Our learn-to-dive programme follows a grade scheme of progressive skills, from level 1 - 10. You can download the complete list of skills below or watch videos for each level here.
Skills start with the essentials - directions, shapes and movements from poolside - before progressing to jumps and dives from the 1, 3 and 5m boards. Children work mostly towards one grade per term, although those who demonstrate good technique can be assessed on two. Assessment during term-time is ongoing. Certificates and badges for each level passed are typically awarded towards the end of term.
If divers pass level 10 they are invited to join our Novice Squad, where they can start to compete at external competitions and represent the club.
We aim to run several internal club competitions a year for our whole programme. Everyone from the newest beginner to intermediate and the more advanced is encouraged to enter. It is a great opportunity to have a go at competing in a fun, friendly and relaxed environment.
Weekly Term-time Classes & Fees
Being a membership club, fees are payable when joining until the end of term. Fees are billed termly thereafter. We do not offer drop-in or pay-as-you-go classes. 121 sessions are the closest to it. Click here for more information about 121s.
Members pay a £35 club joining fee when signing up, which includes a club T-shirt and mandatory registration/insurance through our governing body, Swim England. Our joining fee is payable regardless of whether you are affiliated to Swim England through another club. Adults pay a reduced club joining fee of £25 because they do not get a club T-shirt.
The joining fee turns to a £25 annual club membership fee for everyone, billed each January thereafter. This includes your Swim England registration/insurance for the year ahead.
We run weekly term-time adult classes on Mondays (8pm-9pm) and Tuesdays (8pm-9pm).
Note that both are currently full and enquiries are being added to a waiting list.
