Swimming lessons we offer at Parklands Leisure Centre

Swimming lessons at Parklands Leisure Centre run for 50 weeks of the year, seven days a week. We offer group lessons for children and adults of all ages and abilities, as well as one-to-one lessons to help you improve specific skills. Students can be enrolled at any time throughout the year and you don’t have to be a member of any of our other facilities to enrol.

All of the swimming instructors at Parklands Leisure Centre are fully qualified with Swim England or an equivalent accreditation. They are experienced in both teaching children and adults to swim for the very first time and improving your swimming skills to more advanced levels.

Lessons for children and infants

Over 110,000 children learn to swim every year in Everyone Active swimming pools around the country. In Leicester, we offer classes for children and infants beginning at four months old.

Swimming lessons at Parklands Leisure Centre follow the Swim England ‘Learn to Swim’ framework, helping kids to achieve National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS) awards, as well as other certificates for long-distance swimming.

Classes for infants are designed to encourage simple paddling and confidence in the water, slowly getting babies and toddlers used to being in the water on their own.

What to expect from children’s swimming lessons at Parklands Leisure Centre

  • All of our instructors are DBS-checked and Swim England-qualified, which means they’re perfectly suited to keeping your child safe in the water.
  • Classes last at least 30 minutes, including the taking of registers and parent handover where necessary, with the exception of Rookie Lifeguard classes.
  • You can request a transfer between classes at any time if your child is not happy for any reason.
  • Your child will work towards badges and certificates to track their progress, earning a free coloured swimming hat to show their level.

One-to-one lessons and other activities

As long as group classes, one-to-one swimming lessons are also available for one to two students at a time. Anyone can sign up for one-to-one lessons, which are well-suited to those who prefer to learn in a more private environment, feel less confident in the water or who want to focus on a specific skill.

Alongside regular lessons, we also offer a range of aquatic activities at Parklands Leisure Centre that are open to anyone with the appropriate ability level.
