KLeisure Swiim Academy 01

For new entrants to the swim academy, selecting the correct level of class is important. To assist this process every child has the opportunity to be assessed by a K Leisure staff member.

  • A short water based assessment can be arranged at reception
  • The assessment is free of charge
  • Parents will be advised of the booking period for the next upcoming course of lessons
  • Lessons are booked and pre-paid in advance once a place has been secured

Priority rebooking exists for children who are enrolled in the current term

As a valued member of the K Leisure Swim Academy we are committed to ensuring that you have the opportunity to secure your child’s place in the next term of swimming lessons.

You automatically have the opportunity to rebook the next course of lessons two weeks prior to the completion of each term. On the second last week of each term you will be informed what level your child should continue their swimming lessons at for the next term – this will be posted on the swim academy notice board. Rebooking is based on a first come first served basis for children in the current term. Change of days, times cannot be guaranteed.

If you have not enrolled your child during the re registration week, your child’s place will be made available to our waiting list. A booking will only be accepted with full payment. Any missed lessons cannot be made up or refunded. A credit note may be issued only if supported by a doctor’s cert.

Intensive Swimming Programme

We run short intensive swimming lessons during the school holidays. Information on courses are posted on our web site and the swim academy notice board.

Private Lessons

Personal coaching sessions are also available for both adults and children. For more information please ask one of our customer care team.
