We know that once kids have learned to swim, they just love to swim!
We also understand that children learn at their own pace, and some are more comfortable in the water than others. We at Epic want to change that.Through our long-standing association with Speedo, we are able to offer a range of programmes designed to support children of all abilities to improve their competency in the water. Speedo provide generous funding suppport for our various programmes, and have previously arranged for our children to meet legends such as Rebecca Adlington (right). We would struggle to do this without their support, so hats off to Speedo!
We work with schools to ensure that children achieve the standard set by the national curriculum, by offering intensive training that is designed to supplement the school's own provision. You can find out more about how we support our local schools here.
We also run aquatic provision to help those that can already swim to develop their technique and swimming ability. Through our SAS Sharks programme, we offer swimming lessons at really affordable prices, at one of the best facilities in Nottingham, the Victoria Leisure Centre. We have trained instructors and lifeguards that ensure that children receive the best tuition in a safe environment. Bring your child along - they'll have great fun, and one day it might just save your child's life!
We also offer swimming provision as part of our Community Games programme, which is run during school holidays. Children based at each venue during the Games are given the opportunity to go swimming as part of the programme. Kids that can't attend the Games are also given the chance to swim as part of a subsidised provision that is open to the general public.
