Swimming Lessons in Leyland / Chorley

Swimming Lessons Leyland – Give your child a lifetime of confidence in the water at Splash.

The Hub is the number one leisure and activities centre in the area. As well as offering swimming lessons in Leyland in our state of the art swimming pool, we have a nursery and pre-school, cafe, ice-cream hut and a hair and beauty salon – there really is something for everyone at the Hub.

Splash was established back in 2009 with the aim of providing swimming lessons for all ages. The pool and changing facilities are stylish and modern, offering a fantastic environment in which to learn and have fun. The pool is chemical free and is idealĀ  for babies and people with delicate skin.

All our classes are small, with a maximum of 6 pupils per class. This helps children to progress at a faster rate and gain more confidence in the water. In addition to this, the instructor is also in the water during the early stages – which aids progression for the child.

As your child grows, our classes grow with them. We are able to offer group lessons or 1-2-1 lessons, so whatever way you think will inspire your child, we can help out.

Our instructors are fully qualified to ASA/STA Level 2 and we incorporate the Amateur Swimming Association National Teaching Plan into all our swimming lessons.
