Most swimming lessons take place in an indoor pool, so this summer why not give your children the chance to improve their skills at the beach or at a lakeside location?
The ASA, the national governing body for swimming in England, and the RNLI, the charity that saves lives at sea, are providing a unique opportunity for all 7-14 year olds.
This summer they have the chance to take part in a fun, practical, interactive swimming session at beach and lakeside locations across the country – and learn all about how to stay safe.
Each 40 minute session is completely FREE and includes safety advice provided by RNLI lifeguards and up to 30 minutes in-water tuition with ASA accredited swimming teachers.
