Foxhills has three outdoor pools and two indoor pools.
The two pools at our family building, The Pavilion, offer the perfect family activity for kids to have fun and make a splash. Both pools feature pioneering technology to reduce chemicals and energy, while providing crystal-clear healthy water - kind on swimmers' eyes and skin. Toddlers have their own part of each pool, rather than a separate paddling pool, which also has a positive impact on water quality and will help them grow in confidence in their own safe area.
Professionally-run junior swimming classes take place in The Pavilion's one-depth indoor pool through Swim England (ASA). Junior Swimming classes for babies and children are provided by the Foxhills Swim School with adult lessons available on request. Email to join the waiting list on firstname.lastname@example.org
Foxhills' Swim School follows the Swim England Learn to Swim Programme accredited by the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA). The national syllabus ensures swimming lessons are delivered to a high and consistent standard. The programme is based on a progression of skills and stroke technique ensuring that each individual builds upon their water confidence at every stage of their development.
Adult, Child & Pre-school
The pre-school framework supports babies and pre-school children building the beginnings of a lifelong love of water. Parents and guardians attend swimming lessons with their children and join them in the water. Once swimmers are able to take instructions, they move into a class without a parent or guardian in the water with them. Here they will be taught the core skills needed to learn the four strokes through fun and games.
After School Classes
The Learn to Swim framework provides children with confidence in their ability. From this comes more enjoyment of swimming, a love for swimming and being in the water, and the skills and motivation required to lead a healthy lifestyle. Children will learn the nine key skills needed to become competent swimmers. These include entry, exits, floatation and balance, rotation and orientation, streamlining, aquatic breathing, travel and coordination, water safety and health and fitness. By learning and combining skills, children understand the processes needed to swim all four strokes, front crawl, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.
Awards & Badges
Children will be rewarded as they learn to swim and progress. Remember not every child progresses as quickly as another; some children are more naturally competent and confident in the water and therefore will progress faster. Other children are slower to learn new skills but can quite often become stronger more proficient swimmers as they progress. Each Learn to Swim Stage will have a number of complementary awards which recognise a child completing a particular skill within the whole stage. These act as great motivators for children.
On average, a group swimming lesson bundle for 10 weeks costs £130 per child aged 0-2 years old or £150 for a child three years and older.
One-to-one swimming lessons are available and costing will need to be discussed at the time of booking with the individual instructor.
