Swimming Lessons

Swimming Lessons 2020

Swimming lessons will be offered on a week by week basis according to demand and must be pre-booked.  The pool will be divided into 3 lateral sections with 7 socially distanced swimmers in each section – Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced groups in each session. Teacher/Pupil ratio 1:7.  Parents may spectate but must socially distance in the seating area – please see protocols surrounding “beach style show up and swim” and changing rooms at www.bunclodyswimmingpool.ie

It is important to note that beginners will not have a teacher in the water with them due to COVID-19 regulations but will have a swimming noodle for flotation.  Beginners should be confident in the water in this capacity and be capable of taking instructions – pool depth is 1.2m at the shallowest section.  Please do not over-estimate your child’s ability.  Minimum 5 years old.

Weeks 1 to 4 are fully booked for Beginners and Intermediate.  There are a few spaces still available for weeks 3 & 4 at Advanced level.  Please phone the pool if you wish to make a booking.

All those attending lessons must complete the Health Declaration form below and bring it on the first day of each week.
