What do we offer?
LOBSC offers adult sessions aimed to cover all abilities. We have a one hour Beginners session each week that caters for complete beginners up to those who can swim a length or two and a one hour session for Improvers aimed at those who can swim but want to improve their stroke or wish to learn a new stroke.
When do we swim?
We usually run our sessions on a Thursday evening all year round with a two week summer and two week Christmas Break.
Beginners session is 6.00 – 7.00pm
Improvers session is 7.00 – 8.00pm
Where do we swim?
Held at the Warren school (NR33 8HT) these sessions provide the perfect place to learn as the water is particularly warm (ideal for relaxing and avoiding feeling tense) and the pool is completely private so no need to worry about who may be watching!
Which is the session for me?
The beginner session caters for the complete beginner and those who have some basic swim skills but lack water confidence. We can tailor the session to suits the needs of the individual, so a nervous swimmer who struggles to get into the water, right up to someone who can swim but has a fear of deeper water will be looked after.
Our improver class was initially intended to be the next stage after beginners and still is, however over time we’ve been found by lots of local budding triathletes who can swim but need to develop their technique. We do lots of stroke work and then move onto stamina work.
Over the years we have had many success stories. Along with helping people fulfil a life long ambition to actually learn to swim, we’ve also helped a young man achieve his goal of joining the Marines by getting him through the swim test, we’ve had a triathlete qualify for Team GB, and we’ve even helped someone re-learn to swim after a car accident left them with a brain injury.
Who runs the sessions?
The sessions are run by two fully qualified and experienced instructors. Numbers of swimmers in each session are kept small so we can provide plenty of feedback as required.
How much does it cost?
We offer a first session free of charge.
If you wish to continue after your first session you will be required to complete an Annual Membership form for LOBSC, our membership year runs from 1st January – 31st December and the annual cost of membership for Adult classes is £20, this covers all insurances and signs you up as a Swim England member which also gives discounts on swimming events and access to other offers.
Our classes are in charged blocks usually of 8 sessions at £50 per block (If you join us mid-block, or the block is shorter/longer than our normal 8 sessions then the fee will be calculated at £6/session + £2 admin fee). All payments will be requested via PayPal invoices which can be paid using any credit or debit card (and without needing a PayPal account itself).
