As part of our Ability for All programme Everybody Sport are pleased to launch our Alpha Swim Scheme, a 12 week course of swimming lessons for young people with a disability.


The Alpha Swim lessons will be a basic introduction to swimming and encourage children to have fun, be more relaxed in the water whilst learning basic water skills in line with the Swim England Award scheme. The lessons will have a smaller teacher to swimmer ratio and will be adapted to meet the needs of the child where possible.


Who is Alpha Swim for?

– For any young people with a disability or additional need aged 4 to 17.

– Not on Learn to Swim Scheme or receiving 1 to 1 lessons.


When are the lessons?
