Swimming

If you have a disability come along and try swimming at one of our Saturday morning sessions. We have about a third of the pool from 9am to 11am at The Queen's Diamond Jubilee Centre

If you can't swim expert tuition is available to teach you, with years of experience at adapting strokes for a wide range of disabilities, whether for competition or just for recreation.

If you need help before you get to the pool we have a range of equipment at our disposal including a changing couch, a hoist and a shower chair. We also have willing helpers to assist you.

Changing rooms aids

We have a changing couch available and a mobile hoist with which you can be lifted into the shower chair, which can then clamp on to the poolside hoist.

Poolside Access

We have a hoist at the poolside that the shower chair  latches onto to be lifted into or out of the water.

For the ambulant there are easy access steps that lead into water at a depth of one metre.



Flotation aids

We have a range of flotation aids including barbells, armbands, neck collars and more, along with teaching aids designed to make learning fun for the younger swimmers.

Helpers

Helpers are always at hand to assist with entry and exit and a limited supply of helpers are available in the water, to provide physical assistance or expert tuition.

Helpers may also be available in the changing rooms.

Splashnights

To make swimming, or messing about in the water, more fun, we have splashnights, more details of which are on the Social and Fundraising page

If in doubt, come along and have a look at us before committing yourself.
