Swimming Lessons : Children

The minimum entry age for starting Swim Lessons is 4½ to 5 yrs of age (or primary school going). Lessons run from September to the end of May, with terms based on the school year. Once a student is accepted onto a Swim Lesson, there is an automatic enrollment onto the following swim level and so on. Breaks are not allowed during the swimming year; once a student is enrolled he/she must continue to attend lessons for the remainder of the school year to allow a consistent improvement and progression. 

The Swim Lesson progression is as follows:
Beginner 1; Beginner 2; Intermediate 1; Intermediate 2; Advanced Intermediate 2; Improvers 1; Improvers 2; Pre-Dolphins; Dolphins Swim Club. (Enrollment is based on a waiting list.)

Lessons are on Monday – Saturday, 40 minutes in duration:
Monday – Thursday: 3.40pm – 6pm (3 Lessons)
Friday: 3.45pm – 5.10pm (2 Lessons)
Saturday: 9.30am – 11am (2 Lessons)

The Swim Lesson fee varies depending on the length of the term, as a guide a 6 week term for Non-Members €70, Members €50
