Cofton Swim Stars

Does your little one need to improve their skills in the water? Are you looking for a bespoke programme that can help your child make progress more quickly.

Learning to swim is important for so many reasons. We teach children and adults to learn to swim through 1:1 or 1:2 swimming lessons. The great news is, Cofton have now opened their doors for a brand new swim school, designed for children of all abilities, from those who have never swum before, to those who are competitive swimmers.

Keep track of your child’s progress, with regular updates from your instructor.

Our Programmes

Our swimming lesson programmes adhere to the Swim England Learn to Swim (LTS) Programme stages 1 – 7. The focus is on helping swimmers to transition from the early stages into a club setting, complete with certificates and badges if required. We can also coach for specific events or to retrain adults to perfect their stroke. You’ll be surprised at how quickly you see water confidence improve.

Meet the Instructors

Coftons Swim Star school is delighted to have four dedicated instructors all CPR and first aid certified. Each instructor is DBS checked, ASA level 2 (At least) qualified and a certified iOS member . Participants will be assigned an instructor based on the availability and the swimmers skills level.
