Derwentside ASC Club Night Learn to Swim Programme

Derwentside ASC operating out of the Louisa Centre, Stanley is a competitive performance academy within the North East region.

We operate our own Learn to Swim Scheme in which it is our aim to provide a friendly, fun and supportive environment for children to learn to swim. We achieve this through providing qualified experienced teachers with in the water assistants, to progress swimmers through our tailored pathway.

Classes are split based on the ability of the child, with lessons within both the small and big pool. Those within the small pool focus on development of fundamental movement skills which assist in the development of strokes, these tend to be within fun, game based activities. Those within the big pool are focused on development of the four strokes and sport specific skills, while also providing valuable competitive skills.
